Before porting Fitaly on another platform the following considerations need to be taken into account:
1. The operating system should provide a framework that enables us to develop an integrated quality alternative input method without jailbreaking the devices.
2. Fitaly as an alternative input method is more likely to be adopted on devices that don't have a hardware keyboard and are widely used.
3. Last, but not least, it takes time, and it takes money.
Android may be the more likely candidate, and things may change with Apple.
How many products do you know of that work on Windows Mobile, iPhone, Android, Symbian, Web OS, Palm OS ... ? The multiplication of platforms may be good in terms of competition. However, it makes the ROI for software developers questionable.
The best would be a grass roots request to get Qwerty replaced with Fitaly by the manufacturers who always think they offer all you need -:)
