Daring Fireball nonsense

Regarding the half-official Google Nexus One phone Gruber states:
"The big advantage over the Droid: no hardware keyboard."
There are times when this otherwise brilliant commenter simply does not get it: no keyboard means 'I won't buy it' for a whole
lot of people. Me included -- mostly due to my constant fighting with the iPhones implementation of a soft-keyboard, which
sure is better than most other implementations but still ridiculously inferior to e.g. the Blackberry Bold keyboard.
So I see the Droids Keyboard as its main advantage over other offerings... its the one feature that makes me consider to try
it out. I definitely won't try the Nexus One which is missing this feature.
