T9 improvement idea

I noticed that T9 is now doing search immediately after each character is pressed. with long contact's list this is not so fast and is blocking input for quite a long time, especially on first two or three letters entered.

My idea is to either:

- have a short delay after each character allowing to enter more letters before search will actually start

- don't block input during search and stop/re-start search immediately when another character is entered

Thanks for the suggestion.  I think the best idea is to not block and do the search on a separate thread.  I'll see if that's possible.  Creating work item.
