When The Iphone came,It did away with a physical keypad with its touchscreen and easy to use interface.While this worked really well for the average consumer,businessmen and Corporate professionals found this as an inconvenience as they had to type around 200 smses a day and their fingers were always pressing the wrong button.So they slowly moved to blackberry phones which offered a qwerty keypad.
My point here is that people get carried away with touchscreens.You should
not just buy a device because it is touchsceen. Pick the one which best suits your needs.Businessmen will need touch and type whereas the average consumer would prefer a touchscreen.
Over the years,nokia has introduced a whole new type of touch and type.Its a resistive touch with a normal keypad.Its not even qwerty.This type of phone is a pure inconvenience.Period.It offers the worst from both worlds.A resistive and not capacitive touch and a normal not qwerty keyboard.So why do people buy these phones?Simply because they must have heard from someone that touch and type is the best of both worlds.This article means to break that belief.
Touch and type is good,But dont get carried away.Pick the phone that suits your needs.
