Go go, gadgetto-hand, to hold my neo 'cause I want to write the next
chapter of "How to become a mach-3 typer" with eight fingers and two
thumbs on a 2.8" screen.[1]

Anyway, didn't want to stop your flow of ideas.

BTW: What do you think about T9? Touching instead pressing keys could
speed up the process noticable. And the user has the option to fit the
geometry of keys to his fingers.


[1] I printed a picture of neo in its original size and... yes it fits,
    but don't expect to see anything else but fingers.
