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?

Lifting your finger off the screen produces a space? That would be my main objection. Being forced to finish the word or sentence you're typing before you can scratch your nose (or another action) would be too limiting and irritating, both in practice and as an idea to reckon with.

I installed it the other night and I found that to be an issue -- especially while learning how to use the input method. While learning I kept removing my finger so I could see where the letters were and I'd have to backspace before getting back to typing.
