On a statement released to the press, Decuma promissed to develop a version of its handwriting system for some smartphone devices, with first ones including the software to be available during 2005.
For selected smartphones currently shipping, consumers will be able to download Decuma's software already this year. Current solutions are for mobile phones based on Symbian UIQ and other operating systems are in the pipeline. Palm OS and Windows Mobile (pictured) have been supported by Decuma for some time now.
Decuma's handwriting recognition technology currently covers western languages as well as Chinese and Japanese, a width not offered by anyone else in the market. Decuma's most important differentiator, however, remains the user interface, praised for giving the user an experience very close to that of using a pen on paper, allowing natural and intuitive handwriting.
Decuma offers its technology for integration in mobile phones with pen input capabilities, targeting manufacturers and platform developers directly, but also through industry partners.
