Anyone tried the Swype typing method for android ? It's pretty creative use of the thumb for speedy fast typing.

I also saw a video on you tube where teeenagers from korea or china were using their smartphones keypads so fast. It was amazing. Well the teenagers today got access to smartphones so early in their life that they live their entire day on it.

Interesting thoughts. I saw an Ipad Mini commercial that demonstarted that the Mini could be held in such as way as to free the thumbs up for the familiar texting move. I have a third generation Ipad and thumb prestidigitations are obsolete without a doubt, but I think with the new, larger phones and smaller tablets, we may see a resurgance of thumbnastics.
