This looks good. I wonder about the openness of the hardware as well
as the drivers. I don't have any experience with the iPhone type
screen input, but I have had a Palm Z22 for two or three years now.
Its claim to fame is the "Graffiti" stylus entry feature. I can enter
the usual English alphanumeric characters including common punctuation
marks by fairly simple strokes. Entering additional characters (and
punctuation) requires a two step process. There is a special area,
about the bottom quarter of the screen which accepts only these

It would be great to have the functionality of the dual touch / multi
torch input in an open development environment.
