Let's see here:
On the Blackberry, the Period is a 2 key press for URL's. On the iPhone, it's there.

On the Blackberry, numbers are frustrating to type (2 key press for each).
Dialing the phone on the BB is a PITA as there is no keypad and you have to try to find the small buttons with the #s on them.
I'm sure there are more but I found trying to use the small keys a nightmare and using the Web an exercise in frustration.
While I agree with your assessment on the layout, the touchscreen isn't anymore efficient. You still have to navigate between 2 screens for letters, numbers and characters.
I'd rather press 2 buttons then navigate 2 or 3 windows, IMO. Again I'm looking for efficiency when I'm typing since I have to respond to long emails some times.
