I agree that lefties get worse usability in general.  The 770 and N800
are not usable with the left hand holding the stylus; I wrote about
this to the list before.  The solution, IMHO, is to provide a flip-out
keyboard that would make the stylus less necessary, and text input
easier.  If the 9000, 9500, 9300, and E90 can do it, why not the
N800++?  The keyboard would also, when closed, protect that nice

(someone on the #maemo channel mentioned the E90 has the same
processor and memory as the N800...  hmmm...)
