I remember seeing on television a morse code expert beat a mobile phone using teenager in typing speed. On the surface of a mouse with limited real estate, morse code would be better than having a full alphanumeric keyboard.
This mouse has a left mouse button for normal point and click, and a then
a right button designed to be efficient for tapping morse code. The morse tappings can send commands such as "open contextual menu", "set drag lock", "set scroll lock", "close window", "press down shift key", etc, and maybe it can even be used to type text.

||Maybe it's a question of ergonomics. For example, the text entry system of a mobile could be transcribed onto the numeric keypad of a keyboard. Then a thumb and two fingers could be used, instead of a thumb only on a mobile.
||A numeric keypad, coded in this way, becomes a sort of morse code except using dots only.
||By the way, the very first computer that I ever saw, a UK101, was used by the owner to decode morse code from a key input and display the text on a TV set. Back in 1980 or so.
