Virtual JOG Control Keyboard for Mobile Phones

It is becoming more prevalent that the JOG control on small ends phones will be enlisted to perform more tasks. Using two hands on a small phone is difficult. An example phone is shown below in which a textfield is presented. The JOG down is pressed and a keyboard is presented below in which the JOG control can be used to traverse the keys, the JOG down will select the key and enter it into the textfield. The Virtual keyboard will scroll when necessary if the screen is too small.
