It might work. The downside is that with a "fixed sized" key setup
you'll learn how far to extend your fingers to hit a specific key. The
fifth time you write "internet" you'll know where to put your fingers
(muscle/motoric memory) and hitting the s in interns is close to e. Bad
example but I think you get what I'm after. The user might have a harder
time learning where to push to hit a specific letter.

Don't know if that's realistic at all, I guess your suggestion really is
a good idea in most cases. :)

Another idea:
I'd love to tap morse code on the phone's shell/casing and use the mic
(the accelerometers oscillates to much to be usable for this I think) to
interpret it into letters. :-D

Just my 0.02 SEK
