On the N810, you have to slide the physical keyboard out to get access
to the d-pad and the button in the middle, and if you've done that,
you might as well use the physical keyboard :-/

According to the docs, it should just require a finger press (as
opposed to a stylus press) on a text input field, although in practice
it seems that a double tap works better.  It works fairly reliably for
text input fields, but with the xterm there is no text input field,
and any tap on the terminal will start selecting text instead.
