Add an escape key, a Y key, change the \ to a / … and move the control key to the _right_ side of the keyboard (so you can hit control-c and control-w without too much trouble — that bugs me on many mobile devices — on thumb keyboards, the control key goes on the RIGHT, not the LEFT).
Oh, and, a dpad (it can be like the E73’s combined dpad+optical mouse, but definitely needs a dpad).
I love the concept though. Hope Nokia makes something like it.
1) some keyboard adjustments (1 column wider, extra key on the top is an esc. next to the 1; extra key in the 2nd row is for the Y key, extra key in the 3rd row is the semi-colon; extra key in the bottom row is for the question-mark, between the comma and left-arrow; put the parenthesis keys back where they belong, and put the double-quote where it belongs (shift single quote), where the parenthesis are now put the brackets, and make the control key a toggle instead of a modifier (otherwise the control key definitely needs to be on the right end of the keyboard))
2) dpad instead of optical pad … or an ability to make the optical pad act like a dpad (1 swipe = 1 move, instead of a continuous motion as the swipe lasts). Sort of “mouse mode” and “dpad mode” — the samsung q1 ultra gives you that choice for its joystick button.
3) on the bottom edge (near the space bar), put, from left to right: micro-USB host/OTG (like on the N810), micro-DVI-I or micro-DisplayPort, mini-USB client/charger.
4) headphones in the upper corners (about where the N800 puts the camera or stylus).
5) and, running Maemo of course, though, with SyncML that works over WLAN and WWAN, not just BT and USB. It’d be nice to see the Canonical Dalvik engine integrated as well (for running Android apps). Redfly support, too, while we’re at it.
6) the GSM is quadband, and the 3G is at least Euro + AT&T/NAM + T-Mobile-USA (the special Asian bands are optional, IMO). And not just for data, full phone + messaging.
What can i say? This phone is truly a pleasurable phone. The battery life is amazing. You can be tapping away for hours and it just works and works and works. Im off the belief that the new smaller usb format, of usb micro means more features in even smaller phones.
This phone is well worth the money. I suspect there will be a shortage approaching Christmas.
