When you rotate the screen, you may (or may not) want to rotate the input 
events as well.  The matrix lets you manipulate the input events so that 
device motion and screen motion are correlated.  For the touchscreen, 
you'll want to rotate the input events to match the screen rotation.  The 
existing iPaq touchscreen code should show you what to do.
