[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] Cursor & control keys on screen

the NOKIA 770 did a really great and reliable job during a travel, where
i could access home servers by ssh, handling e-mail with remote pine...

Regarding ergonomy, the following points were a little complicated:

* cursor movement needs to press the buttons, while everything else goes
through the screen keyboard. It's similar to the PC annoyance to have to
use a keyboard plus a mouse. It would be very nice if the cursor keys
could show up also on the screen.

* reaching the control key has to go through a pulldown menu. Similarly,
things would be sped up much if there would be just an additional
control key in the screen keyboard.
