That's what *you* know. There's no such a thing as a "proper" keyboard. I can type just as fast on my iPad as I can on a traditional stand alone keyboard.
Can you blind touch type on a physical keyboard? If not you have nothing to stand on with this argument. What is your wpm?

As I said, I can type just as quick on the iPad as I can on a traditional keyboard. You can believe it or not.

I'd suggest that was more to do with your deficiency as a typist rather than touchscreen keyboards having reached the same level of utility as physical keyboards
I would not "suggest, " I would definitely say your close mindedness is preventing you from accepting certain truths.

I can type fairly quickly on my iPad, but never as quickly (or accurately) as with a proper keyboard, especially when the use of numbers and/or punctuation is required.

I don't doubt that you can type just as quick on your iPad, but I think the standard of your keyboard skills may not be too great to begin with.
