I suck at it, but i can't wait :P
It will probably cost something near a 10'er though :\
Although, it's a pleasurable 10'er at that :)
Is this really something you'd want to do in public?
Do game mechanics like DDR and Guitar Hero actually work on a cellphone? You're smashing your fingers against something smaller than your pinky and that is located on a cellphone, something which barely has any material support to soften your blows. A keyboard has a table or your legs for you hit the keys well. The guitar is big enough for you to hold it well and keep it steady while you play. But a cellphone? Probably will sell good enough between fanbase, but I don't believe it'll work in the overall idea.
