Using the 860 with the keyboard is great. However there are many times when I like to use mine in tablet mode and sometimes want to add text.
I really don't like the handwriting recognition too much, nor the soft keyboard.
What would be great is a Zaurus version of Fitaly. See www.fitaly.com
I used this for ever on my Pocket PC and it is a great way to input text. (Calligrapher is better yet, but I'm not kidding myself it will be available on the Zaurus).
There is a Fitaly-like keyboard called JumpX, http://jumpx.sourceforge.net/
I downloaded this but found it not to really be suitable on the VGA screen. The skins for it are pretty boring too.
Has anyone looked at making a skinable VGA version of JumpX or Fitaly for the Zaurus? I would think this would be an app that people would pay for. I bought Fitaly for my PPC and would buy again for the Z if it is ever available. (Hint Hint )
