hum having the keyboard optimized for text message is a must.....

I mean.. it s a phone... and yougth peole do a lot a text messaging, chat...
so having a keyboard with predictive typing you can type fast your text
message, or your chat (gchat, Ychat, aol, icq etce tcetc).

Personaly, I do not use any xterm, so the keyboard is perfect...
if Iwant to enter commands to the phone.. I ssh it... much easier and
faster.... After all it s supose to be a phone, and I inted to use it uing
my finger, ad the icon/menu that are on the screen.

I really like the 2008.8, the desing of it specially. only thing is the wifi
that doesn't work properly.. the rest is fine... it s the best version I
have seen so far for the Freerunner...
