    in your opinion, how small is too small for touchscreen gameplay? For example, the keys on the keyboard in landscape mode are too small, but are the Springboard app icons too big? Where is that happy medium?

    I'd like buttons about the size of the pads of the tips of my fingers: big enough to be hit, small enough not to get in the way.

    I'm perfectly happy with the button size of gpSphone
