Living in science fiction

I am about to join the 21st century (“dragged kicking and screaming” would be an exaggeration) by getting a smartphone. The part that bothers me is writing messages, as I am clumsy (“dick-fingered,” the Texans say) with hands that have always trembled and age has withered and/or custom staled. (The term I like is claudication, because it is an Anthony Burgess word; no Burgess novel is complete without claudication and apotropaic.) I am told one can get a phone with a stylus, which should help. Suggestions and advice gratefully accepted.
