> 1) As a novice Blink user, I was looking for the keypad function and couldn't find it. The GUI is quite simple, which is a plus, but it was not immediately clear to me that I could simply type the numbers on the keyboard. Having a virtual keypad that could pop up on demand does not preclude the ability to capture keyboard input, and I suspect other novice Blink users may appreciate having the option as well.

The keypad is a gateway to the past. All I dial these days are alphanumeric SIP URIs. When I try to use a SIP client which shows me a dialpad I always wonder how to dial 'saul at ag-projects.com'.

> 2) The virtual keypad could have the standardized letter 'mappings' visible on each key. (Please refer to http://www.quickiwiki.com/en/Telephone_keypad)  In North America many institutions will make use of this mapping.  For example, my brokerage house (Fidelity) requires me to type in an alphanumeric password using the DTMF keypad.  The letters ABC map to 2, DEF to 3, etc..

That actually works :-) We map each letter to the corresponding DTMF.
