First I'd like to just say it's awesome that you are doing this, I've
been following the various efforts to get open software on phones, and
your progress is heartening.

One thing you might want to look into is translating the touchscreen
interface into a touchpad interface. I use this setup when using VNC
to connect to a desktop system remotely from my phone, and having the
absolute events translated to relative events seems to be the most
usable option for interacting with the tiny desktop elements.
