You chose the touch over the universal? How the hell do you type on that on-screen keyboard????? HAHA
(Back to topic) I personally do not like the slide-out keyboards myself. I did find, however, typing was MUCH EASIER AND FASTER vs the external, smaller keys. But one-handed is out of the question, and sliding the keyboard out adds to the time a bit. Which is why I prefer the external treo-style keyboard.

I have one (Universal) also, which I bought because att it was the only device with a cooked wm6 ROM, so I had to try it. Actually love the 640x480, but hate the size. Hate the no-3G in the US also, but I bought it cheap so its all good. I would definitely try the iPhone before the Touch though, the MS onscrren keyboard leaves a lot to be desired...
Its nice, but not half as cool as that IPhone tour just posted. Its pretty functional, and it does help with one handed use. It works on all scrollable pages. The device is pretty small (but the 2.8 inch screen is standard size for near all WM devices at the moment) so all parts of the screen can be reached with one hand. I found a Tengo keyboard plug-in which works pretty well for one-handed text entry, but grabbing the stylus is easier still.
Its a nice device, and the size is really really impressive. Battery life is very good. I'll be enjoying it for a while to come. The IPhone however looks pretty nice. Its no good as a smartphone, but will make a lovely toy.

People with big hands/fingers can use them without fumbling/bumbling. The fuller size and spaced keys are better.
The widescreen mode helps some people see better. Not everyone has sharp or 20/20 eyesight.
Typing with 2 hands on a full keyboard is indeed better if you have to send important emails. Better to be accurate, than send short choppy messages that look unprofessional.
Although I prefer not to always slide-out myself, I can see the benefits.
