With some of the predictive dictionaries and such, typing emails and longer texts on a touch screen has become a lot easier. I use SwiftKey X and I've been able to peck out much longer messages in a fraction of the time. I imagine that if I used Swype and actually mastered it...that would be some scary screen-typing.
