Windows Phone 7 keyboard "incredibly accurate and fast"

On Windows Phone 7 we will not have the choice to swap Soft keyboards, meaning Microsoft’s work better be more than good.

Fortunately it seems Microsoft realized this, and despite the basic appearance of the keyboard, the software behind it is pretty good. CNET’s Bonnie Cha described the onscreen keyboard as "incredibly accurate and fast" and Crave’s John Chan considers it to be “almost as good as Apple’s iOS keyboard for speed and accuracy.”

Of course for those of us still adverse to non-tactile keyboards we know at least one Windows Phone 7 handset will come with a slide-out physical QWERTY keyboard, meaning the best of both worlds.

Are out readers happy with early reports of the keyboard, or still upset that they will not be able to change it? Let us know below.
