We've been hearing complaints about the iPhone's lack of a "real" keyboard since its announcement. It's an issue of tactile feedback. If you can't feel the keys your brain shuts down and your fingers fumble for some bit of texture. At least that's what some people believe.
For those people, MyTouchKeys was introduced. It's essentially a screen protector that has cutouts where the keyboard resides. These cutouts give the impression of pressing a physical key. This seems like simple fix for an issue that has been raised. Of course, those little holes may make viewing images and videos kind of wonky.
My issue is whether actual iPhone owners miss their smartphone keyboards. I did a quick unscientific poll of iPhone owners I know to see just how much they miss the alleged tactile feel. Most complained about having to switch to a second keyboard for punctuation. All of them found the lack of a tactile keyboard a non-issue.
So I figured I'd ask my favorite web peeps. As an iPhone owner, do you miss the tactile keyboard? Vote in our poll or leave your comments below.
