No, this is my 3rd touch screen device, i find it easier to type on than the laptop i type on now. i had a bb 8330 and practically had to use a pen tip to type. Then went to a storm 2, and while using that bought a iPod 4 and fell in love with apple interface. Now all i have is 2 iPhones, the iPod touch and iPod nano. The inlaws have some lg touch screen phones that are a pita to use when they have issues

Monochrome as well.
My first touch screen phone was a Treo 300 ( remember the clam shell).
What a piece of crap that was compared to what we have today.
The iPhone 4S is a beaut.
Love it as well as my iPad 2

Do not think of the touchscreen as a novelty anymore but rather as the norm. Loved BB devices but do not miss the physical keyboard. The devices that I never could warm to are the combo physical and touch; had a Motorola Droid with that configuration and just never could get used to the physical placement. They may have improved since I used one though. Do like the iPhone touchscreen better than Android and have not tried the BB version since the Storm I had.
iPhones need a new movelty: tactile feedback. The iPhone would be the first phone to have it.
The thing is that when you're touching the screen you can't really tell what you're typing unless you're looking at it. Will this ever happen, probably not.
But I think that accuracy would improve. What if you could actually feel the joysticks on an iPhone game?

As much as I like a big screen, I am really liking the touch and keyboard combo on the Bold 9930. If they can make the screen bigger while keeping the keyboard, I would be set. Just something about those physical keys that help me out a lot.

While in my bb days, I used the Storm 2, which was absolutely horrid to type on. Omg there were days I wanted to throw that thing thru a closed window!! after that device imoved onto the Bold 9650, the keyboard was nice. (prior to those 2 bb's,I had a 8330 pink curve)
Ever since moving on to the iPhone just this past Nov., I thought I would've struggled a tad adjusting to the all touch screen on the iPhone but amazingly enough I adapted right away. I now can say I totally spaz out typing on a physical key pad LOL. I had to use my Dads LG Octane the other day, omg....I was sorta lost on a physical keypad, it was sad Lmao.
So, for me the whole touch screen experience is pleasant and has not "worn out" for me what so ever😊

I can't ever imagine going back to a BB with a keyboard - or the pointing devices (had 3 types the roller ball, the rocker and the wheel on the side). No the novelty has not worn off and yes I agree this now feels like the norm. How can i say both? I just broke out my old iPaq 211 the other day - no keypad, but have to use stylus or something similar to use and feels like i spent a trip in the way-back machine to visit the 1800s or 1900s. suddenly the 4s and iPad screen response is magic again.

To answer the OP's question: No, the novelty of a touch screen has worn off. I can type a lot faster on my iPhone than I could ever type on my Curves or my Storm2 - mainly because of SurePress. I doubt I'll ever go back to a keyboard phone.
