Indeed, the Google "Swipe" keyboard (not very accessible) is what I'd
consider "sucks the least" of virtual keyboards. But yeah, for anything more
than a sentence or two, I'd much prefer a physical keyboard.  I love my
netbook for travel (even if the keyboard has a few keys in wonky positions),
and I've had my eyes on a
tablet+keyboard combination that occasionally comes on sale for
cheap.  I guess, much like vi/vim, I have too much invested in touch-typing
to seriously consider any other option.
