(pronounced: kwer-tee)

An acronym that refers to a standard keyboard (as identified by the first six letters in the upper row). One of the reasons why BlackBerries are so popular is because they have a QWERTY keyboard, whereas IM'ing on a regular cell phone is more difficult because it only has a numeric keypad.
