"Zi Corporation has announced a licensing agreement with Nintendo that will allow developers to make use of handwriting recognition. PDAs have been offering handwriting recognition for some time and with the DS's touch screen it seemed inevitable that the console would eventually gain handwriting recognition technology. An agreement between Zi Corporation and Nintendo means that DS developers will be able to utilise Zi Decuma handwriting recognition technology when creating software for the handheld."

Thats very smart. Text input on this type of device has always been very bad, though doesnt one of the built in apps have a handwriting reader?

No, what you are thinking about, Pictochat, is not HWR, you can draw in it, but you have to tap keys on an on screen keyboard...

I guess this will lead to some of those RPG games where one has to draw out the magic on the screen, but then again, that's probably already in the works.
Anyways, cool. :)
