I recently bought one of the old 2000 comfort curve keyboards from the
evil empire.  I can say that it's nicer to type on than the usual
keyboards, but only if you use two hands.  Trying to do it single
handed, as you may while taking notes on the phone, you find the curve
works against you.

When buying a keyboard, you need to try them out first.  Some don't have
enough travel in the keys, others too many.  Some have sharp edges to
all the keys, better ones don't.  Many of the expensive keyboards aren't
better, they just have more useless buttons added.  And you'll find many
are useless for high speed typing - without a significant gap between
pressing one key and the next, it mashes things up.  You see letters
appearing that you didn't type, or it misses some out.

The last time I found a decent keyboard, I bought three.  That'll keep
me from having to do all the shopping around for a long time.
