A folding keyboard always beats one of those miniature keyboards which assume
you have chopsticks for fingers... or that two thumbs can do the work of 10
fingers. Mobile is still an issue. What's truly needed is some voice
recognition on mobile devices, but CPU capacity won't permit this... not
without some poor performance. Another option are gloves, with or without
some projected interface, or an optical analyser. It'll all come one day. A
symbian executive spoke about it recently too.
