On the other hand, if input methods interest you, openmoko could really
do with a fairly quick and novel input method (People tell me T9 is
patent-encumbered, which is why I use the word 'novel'). There's plenty
of research and things to write about for such a project and it could be
applied outside of openmoko too.
