hmm. i disagree about UIQ being good for on the fly. granted this is based on using the p800 for 13 months. i cant tell you how many car accidents i nearly got into since the thing didnt have predictive text. and then when the keypad broke? oi. badness.
so maybe those are p800 specific issues that the 900 and esp the 910 addressed. but...

maybe whats needed is a t9 implementation that allwos for speed entry - anyone ever use the old Apple Newton? it had a speed handwriting mode where you could go back after jotting things down and re-interpret your scribbles as words. in a t9 environment i'm picturing having your unspellable words just get saved as the numbers. then you can go back and using t9 re-figure out what it was you were thumbing in.
