Gaming oportunities

As a games programming student I see alot of potential for games on the touchscreen phones.  Although there are no buttons (or none we can really use for the games) I still see a number of possibilities.
that is a simple game I want to see on the openmoko phone asap, I am quite addicted to it.
I think the main problem is that for alot of good games, the action is fast, and you have to see most of the screen, so putting your finger in the middle to aim and shoot for a doom clone etc would basically ruin gameplay.  However the stylus could be used due to its far thinner.
Or a small little bit at the bottom
here is a little mockup I did, probably got the finger scale and that wrong but you get the idea.
