Wireless touch-screen control surface, just $350

"Well, sorta," writes Quentin. "The Nokia 770 will be released Q3 2005, runs Linux and is completely open source. For $350, it sure beats that 'Lemur' thing. I'll be getting two!"

The Lemur is still multitouch....
My pocket pc does that since a long time...
The Lemur may be multi-touch, but for the price, you can get one of these for each finger, and still save money.

I think this is an excellent idea. I'd like to see one maybe an inch bigger each way to be truly useful for musical applications, but it's a good starting point.
This looks basically unusable for music to me. The screen is way too small. I mean, you could just go with a PocketPC at that point. On the other hand, I suppose you could use it as a remote for a laptop, and keep it stored on your keyboard. I'd have to see one up close and personal.
Meh, I'd still get a Lemur, if it were only big enough. Multi-touch is important, size more so.

Until then, I'll stick with hardware knobs & switches.
