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?

Odd. It may allow blind typing on a soft keyboard but the amount of effort that goes into typing just one letter seems excessive. Seems like gestures are the new transparency, or tabs: heavily abused new hotness.

I still refuse to buy a phone which doesn't have a slide out keyboard.

Touch screen is great for many things, but for typing lenthy messages it is - and likely always will be - a nightmare.
