Touch screens are best suited to organize flexible interface, intuitive, even for nontechnical users. With the proliferation of handheld, tablet computers, devices for reading electronic books and various terminals touch screens have become as common as a mouse button and the wheel.

For the last ten years the necessity to use physical keyboards gradually falls off...that's because touch screens have become major input devices. Today all apps and websites are optimizes for touch screens making it means that precise pointing is no longer needed, since finger is way thicker that the mouse pointer.
