Here's a small code snippet that always hides the keyboard whenever the focus is in an input or textarea field and the user taps outside of that element (the normal behaviour in desktop browsers).

function isTextInput(node) {
    return ['INPUT', 'TEXTAREA'].indexOf(node.nodeName) !== -1;

document.addEventListener('touchstart', function(e) {
    if (!isTextInput(e.target) && isTextInput(document.activeElement)) {
}, false);
