    I love the Droid but going to turn it back in for the Droid Incredible, never use the physical keyboard. I love the Droid but miss the two main features that made Palm PDA phones great, the universal search across all apps for your personal data entries, and fast simple accurate copy and paste between all applications. I turned down the iPone a couple years ago because it didn't have it, now it does, hope android gets it soon, even the new Palm Pre WebOS does not have it otherwise I would have got that. The other thing I miss is TinySheet stand-alone-spreadsheet, I hope iambic will port it over to android soon. I also miss the precision of using a stylist on the touch screen, either a closed pen, fingernail or regular stylist, to select only the parts of the text I want. iPhone's new copy paste feature gets by this by using the little magnifying glass which works well also, android needs to catch up fast.

    Check out Pogo for a Stylus for the Droid.

    Pogo Sketch

    I agree that the Droid needs something similar to the Apple magnifying glass, it's the one thing that I think the on screen keyboard needs.

    I believe the word you're looking for is "Stylus".
