Hi

how about including an extra button "load more items" after the last 
list-item? - this button could be made only visible if you tab to it.
or some appropriate info-element at the end "loading more items - please 
wait"?

@next loaded item: maybe don't append the new items to the old list, but 
generate a new list which you place below the old list(s)
