PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I bought 8Pen for my Nexus One last night, an alternative, and pretty revolutionary, input method for Android. But how does it stack against normal soft keyboards?

Starting point

Only thing missing from 8Pen is vibration when the finger touches the "spacebar" circle, so we get a clue as to where the starting point is.


That's the first thing I thought when I saw the demo for this app... how the hell would you know when your finger got back to the center circle without looking at it?

Anyway, I still might give it a try, because my fingers are just too damn fat for the default keyboard layout(s), and I often end up hitting the wrong key because of it. I need to find an alternative.
