PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless When Steve Jobs unveiled the iPhone, one of its most prominent and most controversial features was the on-screen keyboard. In as world dominated by devices with physical keyboards, it was seen as a joke, something that could never work. We know better by now, of course, but while I still prefer the physical feel and clicks of a real keyboard, a recent new endeavour of mine has made me appreciate the on-screen keyboard in a whole new way.

When learning Japanese or Chinese, you can draw the chars stroke by stroke and a list of possibilities narrows down to the point of only the chars you need.

Touchscreen are so useful for any language using non-latin chars.
