Yeah. If its done. No need to drop something half baked here unless he wants to make some new potential customers, advice or just hangout.

But most of the time it usually ends up with different feature request

I wouldn't worry about people being rude too much, Chen has been here long enough to know how to use the ignore list... I doubt he even saw the post.

Im not sure what post you are talking about. But if you consider any of my post rude you are right. He use ignore list and seems to be happy with that so that is excellent.

Now we just have to wait for some kind of release date or announcement of some info. Will see what happens next.

Who is the other frog? You?

Unfortunately speculation is the only thing we can do until chen decides to release the prototype images and/or release date.

Waiting for your mighty input to this thread. More quality contribution needed.

few days ago people were talking about trackpads...

i remember the samsung omnia having something like that.



it functioned as a button and swiping over the button it functioned as arrow keys (depending on direction of swipe).

you could activate 'mouse-mode' in settings which would enable a mouse arrow on screen and then swiping over it would move the mouse arrow (it was running windows mobile), like an actual trackpad, pushing the button = clicking the 'mouse'.

it worked surprisingly well as arrow keys, only sometimes used it in mouse-mode (when i was surfing and there were too many tiny links next to each other to press comfortably with fingers without pressing on the wrong one).

htc desire z had a similar button although i'm not sure it had the same funcionality

after the omnia i got me the n900 and ended up on this place... ahhh nostalgia.

Oh, I didn't know about that example. I am convinced that for the space it takes, I would be worth it. Having a cursor on a landscape phone with a qwerty keyboard is in my opinion a must, and the Gemini weaknesses demonstrate it.

If the Livermorium is capable of running Debian or other desktop OSes, then it would be a huge pro to be capable of using them without a big finger on the screen all the time (this never works on OSes that are not made for it, and it's not comfortable either), an inaccurate capacitive stylus, and without plugging a mouse. We would be able to use these OSes on the go. And even if it doesn't run these OSes, then it should still be able to run Teamviewer/Nomachine/VNC/Parsec/Shadow, and therefore a mouse would be needed too.

Do you know if Chen trying to design a pocket Computer or a smartphone with qwerty? Or just trying to achive a topnotch slider/QWERTY experience?
