The nice thing is that Loadstone is sstill completely useable on Nokia devices. Further, we will probably be able to buy these devices secondhand for the foreseeable future. Finally, with Symbian basically dead, we are free to just root our phones and install LS, dev cert or no dev cert. Personally, I'm good with that.

Unfortunately like it or not touch screens seem to be here to stay. The only thing we can do is make the best of it. That will probably involve making creative use of the screen itself as well as providing support for external hardware like bluetooth keyboards etc that would make things easier.
As for development itself, at the moment we're dead in the watter, we need funds to buy development hardware (mainly a mac mini) and purchase a developer certificate. Until that happens we can't even start working on an iphone version.
