Hi folks,

So when I first heard about this phone, I mocked up this idea:


I had originally wanted to make something that would be compatible
with phones that have physical buttons (hence the 3x4 grid), but I'm
beginning to think that I should just give up on that and put a giant
spacebar button on the side.  Also, I never thought about making
capital letters by the way you slid your fingers off of a key before
reading this thread.  It sounds like an awesome idea.

I haven't tried mocking this up on any physical device yet, though I
will probably do so when I get back home in a few weeks.

Just my two cent idea.  Criticisms/improvements are certainly welcome.

Take care.
