yes, i do lots of osm work around my city. i find the neo is hopeless
for anything other than getting gps traces, cos it's so slow to type,
compared to a physical multitap on my old phone

i haven't tried it, but you could have a go at running josm on the neo
- it has support for synchronised audio tagging.

what's the java situation like on om phones?
