"Can anyone tell me why a keyboard is a necessity for an Android device?"

It's a lot easier to enter a wodge of text for me. I'm the customer, why shouldn't I have the choice?

"And all this talk of the keyboard being a trackpad is just the same trackball nonsense the company used in earlier devices."

It's not nonsense. I often hit something unintentionally when scrolling on a touchscreen. The ability to use the keyboard to scroll avoids that completely.

I have a BB Passport and my above points reflect my experience with it.
