Windows Mobile couldn't be the only operating system on the block with its own predictive text software
, now could it? Thanks to Zi Corporation's deal with Access Linux Platform (ALP), the upcoming release of the OS will contain both eZiText
predictive text and Decuma handwriting software. Unfortunately, this doesn't mean that existing devices running this OS will get the new applications; it will still require individual licensees to make that decision. eZiText is a variant of most predictive text systems currently available which also incorporates dual language support and phrase prediction. Decuma is handwriting software found on the Sony Clie (people still use those?) and has support for English, Arabic, Japanese, and Chinese.
