Ditto for me.  I enjoy having my fold-out keyboard for my Tungsten T
(which I *STILL* can't make talk to my RH box!) because it's handy,
portable, etc.

I have used a mini-keyboard though.  For me, it didn't work out well at
all;  it felt uncomfortable and was difficult to work with.  When I'm
holding my device in my hands, I'm much more fond of the graffiti.  I'm
pretty good at it, too; it's not as fast as typing, but I can do the
graffiti as fast as I write long-hand, with very few errors.  :)
