The 411 with Data Input on Handhelds

If you’ve ever tried typing something on a handheld you’ll know exactly how tiresome it is. Regardless of how cool it is to be able to receive email or make notes “on the go”, it’s a hassle for anything other than a few words. So, what’s the answer to this problem? Voice recognition, not for a few years but some kind of more intelligent input methods are a definite possibility. I’ve used predictive typing software on a handheld and I have to admit it takes a lot of the hassle out of the process. It seems to be one of the main contenders as a stop gap before voice recognition (and possibly even after for increased privacy).
