The world's smartphone makers shipped more touchscreen models in Q4 2009 than at any time in the past - and more touchphones than devices with buttons.

No Sh*t Sherlock
Well that's no surprise since almost every bloody handset is a touch screen now! Only a few Nokias and most BBs aren't. Long live the keypad/board!
The manufacturers, apart from RIM and a couple of Nokias, seem determined to push people onto touchscreen by making virtually no keyboarded models. Surely I'm not the only person out there who doesn't like touchscreens?
Exactly . . .
. . . but the headline "touchscreen sales up in market where keyboards are being dropped" doesn't sound so good.
I have a Samsung Pixon, have used iPhone's and Android phones, but I use my phone more for text messages, so the touch screen keyboard is a piece of crap, due to the complete lack of a tactile response.
