This thread is deeeep.
While i like touch screens to a certain extent... i freakin LOVE my Blackberry over my PPC 6700 running WM5/6.
I tend to agree
I'm can imagine they wouldnt be too terrible for the smaller folk, but at 6'6"/280lbs, my fingers are huge. I always end up hitting 4 or 5 touchpad "buttons" at once. What ever happened to solid pressable buttons?
HTC 6700 here and the touchscreen is what makes it good and easy to use without flipping out the keyboard.
HTC 6900 (TOUCH) owns any button phone
Solid buttons aren't configurable enough. They can only do one thing, unless you want to invest in a mini-LCD in each key like Art Lebedev's Optimus keyboard.
Eventually they'll start making touchscreens that can sense when your finger is hovering near the screen, so they can make the buttons near your finger expand to a larger size a-la the Apple OSX program dock. They can already do that with so-called "active" touchscreens that use special battery-powered pens; it's only a matter of time before they get to where they can sense the presence of your fingertip without a pen. Give it time.
