I'd also venture to guess that it's the only one anywhere that is tolerant of delays... if you pause more than 3s during the typing, it stops counting the entire pause against you. I don't like being told my typing speed is slow just because I stopped to think of what I wanted to say, instead of blindly flicking up predictions.

The real barrier to getting fast on a touchscreen is having faith in yourself. When you stop looking at the keyboard and just have your eyes follow your output, then you can get up to the same speed as on a physical keyboard, or certainly very close to it. When on a touchscreen (I have been on and off with android) I always feel so much more comfortable in landscape than in portrait and can go very fast like that, just unfortunately it eats screen real estate. In portrait I used to be ok but not phenominal because the keys always felt smaller than my thumb-tip and that made me be a little more hesitant. But that's a thing that should pass with time, and particularly since the Z10 learns where you are pressing for different keys. The predictive stuff is kinda... well its fine, but I don't like it because if I'm typing fast I'm not looking at the keys, or even at the bar just over the keyboard, so I just ignore them. But for people who are new to touchscreens it may help. But the big deal is it learning where you press. That's so huge. Even for those of us with huge thumbs, it should quickly build up the confidence for us to just type.

Why not both?
Their are patents pointing out the possibility of a torch-like phone coming up (basically a z10 with a sliding portrait keyboard). So if you can you might wanna wait a bit. Either that or try the z10 in store. If you don't like it get the q10.
