It looks like the solution is the bluetooth keyboard.

I couldn't believe how long it took someone to figure out that having a keyboard was a waste of space/weight/parts/etc. So I never missed 'em.

But it looks like you can add one to any phone in existence...

I feel the same way about bluetooth keyboards as I do about bluetooth headsets...

If somebody made one that clipped solidly and unobtrusively onto my phone, and also charged its own battery from the phone, they'd probably be quite useful, and I'd be happy to try one. Since they don't do any of that, they're an extra piece of hardware that is a lot of extra hassle, so it just gets left at home, rendering it useless.

I mentioned phone cases with bluetooth keyboards, in my earlier comment... The upshot is, they aren't available for most phones, and reviews for them range from awful to horrible.
