Well, the Pre keyboard hack is scary no more, and actually available as an app now, thanks to WebOS Internals. Full guide at [PreCentral]

The rate of homebrew development is getting pretty crazy on this thing. WebOS Internals makes a bunch of UI tweaks easy, and FileCoaster reports over 170 homebrew apps. Very exciting.

Oh, and there's also some apps in the official app catalog I guess.
