    I heard a rumor that Nokia will make a cellphone with Morse Code text
    messaging as it is way faster to send than keypadding.

    Any know anything about this?

    Yes, my aging Nokia 3390 sends this alert in Morse Code when a voice
    message has arrived, "C O N N E C T I N G P E O P L E" .

    Now if it would just tell me who left the voice message!

    Wow that was some fast sending..! I once knew a guy (G4JDL if anyone's
    ever worked him..?) who could carry on a QSO in Morse on the radio whilst
    having a completely separate conversation with the person standing next to
    him. Now *that* was something else..!
