The Touchscreen Divide Do you prefer actual keys or have you adapted to the virtual way? Two entrepreneurs square off.

Can't Live with It
I get really frustrated with touchscreens. I struggled when the iPhone first came out--I really love the apps and I really wanted the iPhone, but I really struggled because of the touchscreen. There are so many apps for real estate--the maps, showing clients photos of properties and being able to drag and zoom. For those apps, the touchscreen is awesome. But I can't type on the touchscreen. If I'm using a friend's iPhone and try to type an e-mail, it takes me five times as long. I'm a BlackBerry addict--I use a Blackberry Bold. I recently lost my BlackBerry, and again I struggled. But I still replaced it with another BlackBerry, because it doesn't have a touchscreen.
