Speed Test Puts iPhone Right Behind Full Size Keyboard

Phil Gyford has tested the speed of six different input devices and found the iPhone beats everything but a full size QWERTY keyboard.

The six input devices used were:
- The Apple Newton
- The Palm Vx’s Graffiti
- The Palm Treo 650’s hardware QWERTY keyboard
- The Apple iPhone 3G’s software QWERTY keyboard
- Pen and paper
- A full-size QWERTY keyboard
