They could definitely put up an on screen keyboard, but the lack of
tactile feedback is a problem. I had this idea a while ago to make a
touch screen that created tactile feedback for it's on-screen virtual
buttons by bulging up that section of the screen, but I haven't really
been able to work out a way to do it, possibly air inflating or
something with magnets.

But yeah, the human hand is used for manipulating 3d objects and is
mostly useless for 2d, except for the pointer finger.
