did you try the latest canola 2 beta? I have only tried that one and  
didn't need to use my keyboard for anything... I actually loved how  
it allows for navigating menus simply with your finger.

thanks for the tip on firefly - will check that out too.

Though I haven't tried it yet, Jinzora still looks most promising.  
The project even provides a basic API, which opens possibilities for  
a Maemo client down the line.
