How about using a MEMs Gyro based Stylus for combined gesture and touch based inputs for smartphones ? The stylus would be connected to the cell phone and get its power and data through this connection. It can have a button which when pressed activates gesture mode and otherwise it defaults to a normal stylus ? The stylus could be used very effectively for fast data entry and gesture based mode could be used for zoom in / out, forward and back buttons functions on the browser, click and double click ? It would be built on the lines of the Nintendo Wii remote.
