Touchscreen on both sides

Someone should make a mobile phone which has a touchscreen on both sides (front and back), with one being the phone stuff and web browsing and the other side being music. If you get a move on you’ll be able to have it out by August when I need a new phone. Touchscreens make sense as an interface to me, despite what Nokia say and despite lack of tactile feedback. I don’t like my Nokia E50; it keeps running out of memory when I try and do things like play music and browse the web at the same time. Six months of research ahead, hooray; don’t want an OpenMoko Neo because the device itself is clumsy, don’t want an iPhone because I don’t like the restrictions, don’t want the LG Viewty because the OS is horrific, don’t want the Samsung Armani because I can’t read books on it or browse the web properly, blah blah blah. If I wasn’t so picky about this stuff then I’d be a lot better off. Android is coming, though, and the OpenMoko OS is coming too; might be possible to have an open source phone by August, if I’m lucky. Something to look forward to, there.

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
