I'm very happy that it hasn't one because too small 
keyboards are useless!

With keystroking you could reach spead that beats  normal 1-finger 
searching the right key system writer. And to write quick with 10
fingers the keyboard need to be bigger than 15 cm:
 There are cheap and ligthwight USB keyboards that you can add
 when you have to write more text... and via bluetooth it will be
 maybe not so secure - but wireless :))

But I expect that with the multitouch screen newer and better/faster
text input will be possible.
