QWERTY (qwhir-tee) is the most common modern-day keyboard layout on English-language computer and typewriter keyboards. It takes its name from the first six characters seen in the far left of the keyboard's top first row of letters. The QWERTY design was patented by Christopher Sholes in 1874. The patent was sold to Remington Arms, (later Remington Rand) and used for their typewriters.

QWERTY is the standard keyboard denoted by the letters on the top line of characters. It was originally developed to separate and distribute the key movements on manual typewriters to reduce jamming of the keys. Because touch typists have learned this arrangement, it was retained for computer keyboards.

Note: There are other different types of keyboards, such as the AZERTY (used in french speaking languages, except in Canada that uses the QWERTY), and QWERTZ (used in Germany and Eastern and Central Europe); as well as those used for stenographs.

I believe a qwerty keyboard is just a regular keyboard. It is only called this as the first letters in the first row of keys spells out the "word" qwerty.

They are a type of keyboards we use today. We call them so, because the first six letters in the top row. They are other types as well, like QWERTZ, AZERTY, QZERTY and other non-QWERTY.
