answering myself more on this thread:
this video here shows that one can use a stylus with the N900 maemo5. So
we wouldn't be limited to using QGIS only with clumsy fingers, but could
also build a GUI to be used with a stylus. A stylus would also be more
useful than fingers for editing vector data.
See the video at:
You need the flash-player to watch this video ;-( had to download it for
my machine first for being able to watch this video.
