Engadget reports that Gustavo Sverzut Barbieri programmed an iPhone virtual keyboard on a Nokia N800 using Python and Edje.
The plan was to do it in less than one week, it took a bit more. It does no type prediction, word hint, cursor navigation or key composition (accents are not possible).
Summary is 230 lines of Python, 1110 lines of Edje, including comments and blank lines, and a really easy to type keyboard.
He also shares a video demonstration of the thing:
