Hi Rajashekhar -

have you looked at the various gui toolkits for pythonce? I believe that's 
what you have to use to accept user input. I downloaded ppygui to my HTC 
mogul and it's working great on it.

I also liked the installer for ppygui but I did have to tweak the folder name 
that I extracted it out to match the name in the install script. you may run 
into this issue depending on which folder you extract the contents of ppygui 
to before running the install script.
