How About a Mobile Phone without the Keys? Read On ...

Can't wait to see this one in production units!

Fascinating article in online verson of PC Magazine yesterday about the phone that has no keys.  Yes, that's right -- a touchscreen instead of a keypad (dial pad -- hey, how about a rotary dialer like in the '60s?).

According to the piece, the phone, known as the Onyx, is a touch pad prototype of what developers Synaptics and Pilotfish call a "mobile phone concept," meaning this actual phone will probably never hit the market. You see, it's more of a general suggestion for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) to develop similar phones using this technology.

But let's ask ourselves, why not? Why not a touchscreen? Is that concept that far-fetched? It would certainly get the early adopters all up a lather, won't it?

Anybody have any thoughts in this area?
