Tactile vs. software keyboards

Are you ready for a different kind of keyboard on a handheld or tablet device?  While the Qwerty keyboard has held its own for nearly 150 years (incredible that one technology can remain in constant use, virtually unchanged, for that length of time), Snapkeys and other concepts just like it may change the way we do data input.  I must admit that while the keyboard of an iPad is very similar to what I’m used to, it’s still a bit too small to touch-type (which I do quite well, thank you) using it.  It’s absolutely impossible to do so with a smartphone’s keypad.  So maybe the wave of the future is upon us.
