Phones that require two hands

John Naughton, of whom I'm a fan, is dumping his Google Android. Mainly for hardware reasons.

When calling, texting (and alarm clock) are still the staples of mobile phone manufacturers are playing with fire to compromise them in any way. Tomi Ahonen has always been a proponent of single-handed phone use (and, indeed, of 'blind' texting), and critical of the iPhone because interactions require both hands and eyes.
