The key jamming used to be an issue on the old mechanicl typewriters, which clearly is hardly an issue in this day and age. However the QWERTY keyboard is as others have said also designed to keep the keys that are used the most in the easiest place. There are different keyboard styles as Zolar says above and the link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keyboard_layout#Dvorak here shows some of the styles available. On some devices (Some PSion handhelds) an alphabetic keyboard can be found.
