New Writing Input Isn’t Totally New

On September 10, 2008

CNet has a cool video of a new text input method for touchscreen enabled devices. It comes from one of the inventors of T9 . It is a cool looking input method that has a lot of promise. He even claims he can input at 50 words per minute.

The thing that caught my eye was their statement–

"Of course, this isn’t on the iPhone yet, but if the ubiquity of T9 is any guide (installed on 2.5 billion phones) this could end up "everywhere and anywhere."

WritingPad does the exact same and IS on the iPhone. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to be on the App Store any longer.
