If we train the digital generations (the kids of today) to expect tables/tablets, smartphones and multi-function devices via touch or voice or some future human-computer interface, then we can expect to see all manner of communication technologies and selection methods: and they will find it perfectly normal (natural)
On the other hand those who have grown up with technology developments have a bit more of an historical perspective and know there are other choices than the trendiest device available
--and, of course might prefer other methods (keyboards) instead of membrane-keyboards or touch-screens
As long as everything isn't being decided on a vote
--vote for your preferred method of interface: in fact do we even vote or do designers of devices tell us or show us what they have available and to which we should adapt, because it's cool!
