Now that would be really silly. I hope people don't go sticking stuff in
every hole they find... ;)

I don't know where your mouth is located, but it doesn't align to me :|

I think the proper way to use it, is to hold it on the desk while you
speak. That should be quite useful, because if you hold the touchscreen
to your face, there might be some unwanted buttonclicks in the UI.

The speaker itself should be cabable of outputting enough noice, so you
can hear something. But I wonder how the battery lasts in a usecase like
that? ie. for how long can you speak?
