Palm Pre owners complaining about the lack of touchscreen keyboard


Oh this is just stupid. A Strategy Analytics study has found that some Palm Pre users are complaining about the lack of an on-screen keyboard. Unbelievable.

That’s stupid, of course, because the whole raison d’ĂȘtre of the Palm Pre is to provide a QWERTY device with all the bells and whistles of a touchscreen cellphone. A halfway house between the BlackBerry Bold and the iPhone, if you will.

Here’s the money shot, as told by a Strategy Analytics:

Although users liked having a physical QWERTY keyboard, they did not want to have to slide it out every time they wanted to type something

Yeah, because that’s such a hassle! Did these people not know what they were getting into when they shelled out $300?
