So, this is mainly a joke, but it would be an interesting dispay app for the capabilities of the touchscreen environment and is a departure from the standard 'mouse' behavior of most touchscreens.

pseudo-code:

if(release > init){
 value = null; // no backward dialing or dialing past the fingerstop
}elseif((init - release - 1) <= 0){
 value = null; // not enough mojo (moko?) in your stroke - try again.
}elseif((init - release - 1) == 10){
 value = 0; // necessary substitution
}else{
 value = init - release - 1; // allows for old-school dialing, where it didn't
 // actually matter where your finger was - it only mattered how much it moved.
}

with these area values:

black type = display value
(num) = positional value (if different)

It would be really cool (tm) if it moved under your finger and snapped back after you released.

We might even use the accelerometers to guess the angular position of the phone, and then rotate the phone instead of the dialer. Perfectly useless, nevertheless ;)
