Korean company Diotek has announced handwriting recognition software for the iPhone:
“This newly developed handwriting recognition software, DioPenâ„¢, is an input method that allows writing letters on capacitive touchscreen of Apple’s iPhone by using bare fingertip. Currently, iPhone only provides QWERTY virtual keyboard without additional input methods such as handwriting recognition widely used in most other PDAs or mobile phones with resistive touchscreen.
DioPenâ„¢ can recognize Korean, Chinese and English/European characters and digits written in cursive, print or mixed cursive/print with extreme accuracy. In addition to Apple iPhone, DioPenâ„¢ can be easily implemented with other mobile devices with capacitive touchscreen as well as resistive touchscreen.”
