Probably depends on what you are used to.
I go nuts when i have to type anything in a ABC layout on touch screens 
as they are often used in public service points.

I'm not using 10 fingers there, but i have to search every key. Frustrating!

Same goes for me with mobile phone text entry. It's not too unergonomic 
(if you are used to), but i go nuts over searching every key.
