Comparing Data Input Methods on Handheld Computers (16 Jul 2004)
Three data entry methods (external keyboard, internal keyboard, or Graffiti2) were compared in terms of speed, accuracy and satisfaction. Results indicate that data entry was fastest on the external keyboard and slowest the Graffiti2 data entry method.

Participants generally reported greater satisfaction for the external keyboard than the other two methods.
