3) The touch screen already works, and the addition of a small form factor 
qwerty keyboard underneath a smaller screen* would add functionality, make it 
more geek-friendly, and also force the developers of the different UIs to 
think resolution independence, which is good for the whole reference framework 
thing that OpenMoko also does.

* This has already been aired by people like rasterman - hvga or the like is 
sufficient for the iPhone's, so why not us?
