I wanted to add my voice to the choir because I’m super excited for this device and love love that it’s a thing in the making!
I recently tried downgrading to a flip phone that didn’t have T9 however and it was really rough, especially for note taking which I use a lot (mostly for thoughts/reflections, poetry and lists). I’m on board to slow things down a bit but if that means going back to the tap, tap (next letter) tap, tap tap (next letter), tap (next letter) thing all day…I just don’t know man. It ended up being a dealbreaker for me and I went back to my smartphone.
I know there’s going to be a feature to type longer messages from the laptop but some things are too time sensitive to wait. So yeah, if possible please implement some kind of predictive text function so it doesn’t become a complete slog to type out some sentences while out and about. I (and I imagine many others) would be very grateful.
I really admire the philosophy and standards you guys are striving for in this mostly dog doo market, thanks for doing what you do.
