Yet another finger keybord (gui mock-up).

Well if this phone is going to make some kind of impact on the cellular
industry it needs to offer simple and easy to use text input primarily
intended for sms, adding contacts, etc.  Coders are in the minority here.
90% of the time you're not going to be programming for the phone anyways,
you're going to be texting or adding tasks and contacts.

I for one is more likely to ssh out of the phone. My main drive to get a 
neo is:

  a) Make some good fun and use out of time wasted in places where there 
are no computer or net around. Think trapped in the tent some rainy days.

  b) Be able to spend more time in those places I like better (like the 
forest and the mountains, festivals and happenings).

So... I want a keyboard god enugh to use any CLI/text app and gui tools 
like editors. If I can occasionally compile on the phone it's even 
better (need not be fast)!
