I guess I'll get an iPhone?

Decision time is this Wednesday night, and I'm not sold on any one option.

I'm not in love with the idea of an iPhone yet, I tried one out for 5 or so minutes today. It worked fairly well, it's obviously fun to look at and the look/feel of the device itself is great. All well known and overly written about items.

I can see how the existing app structure/number will be useful, though I'm not inclined to pay for any apps as I'm rather "frugal". There are a ton of free one's, many that I know are good. But I can already feel the draw of some new fangled app, and that it'll be "only" $0.99.

For those with one, how does the touch keyboard work for you? I'm sure I'll get better at it with practice, but I'm a super fast typer with my Blackberry keyboard. This seems like it won't ever reach the same speed. 

The other option out there that I'd like is the Motorola Backflip as it is the only AT&T Android option. Reviews of it are so-so, and I'm not enthused to go with it. Several reviews indicate it might end up being a free phone very soon.

I guess I could look hard at the latest and greatest Blackberry? There just doesn't seem to be any major reason TO get one.
