The reason I want a physical keyboard is because I much prefer a 
keyboard with tactile feedback - you can feel the button, and you can 
feel it click down when you press it. Tactile feedback makes typing both 
faster and more accurate. These are things which a soft keyboard can 
never hope to provide.
