Is typing a lot easier with a sliding QWERTY?

Is typing easier/faster with say the HTC Desire Z?

Easier than what?

A 3x4 keypad? yes, definitely. A touchscreen qwerty?
That really depends on the phone - screen size and responsiveness, etc etc. Also, some people give up easily on touchscreen typing. Given a phone that suits you, you can type fast with a touchscreen device. If you master Swype e.g. you can easily beat any other input form. I haven't used the Htc Desire Z, but I have a Nokia N900, and an E6. I think in landscape I type faster on the Samsung Galaxy S2 than on either of the Nokias. In portrait mode the E6 is much more convenient.
You'll definitely have to give it a couple of days - whatever new phone and keyboard type you try.master Swype e.g. you can easily beat any other input form.

Nope, keyboards are overrated. If you have 4"+ screen keyboard is absolutely useless. I had hard time moving from Blackberry to Android without keyboard, but with big screen it's very hard to mistype. Took me a week getting used to it and now on-screen keyboard is my preference.
I have problems with iPhone 3, which seems a little small for me and I hit wrong keys. On D-HD (4.3") it's not a problem. Keep in mind that keyboard will either take away screen space or make phone bigger (case with Desire Z).
In the end it depends how big of a phone you are getting.
