I haven't used OpenMoko for a while, I've just been using Qtopia so  
I'm not up to date on the software state of things.  I'm just really  
curious how they're handling text input.  Is there a decent finger  
keyboard out or is it the same gray keyboard you need the stylus and a  
magnifying glass to use?
