Handwriting recognition for iPhone?

Apple has posted a new job opening, demanding Handwriting Recognition Engineer. The person should be well versed in pattern recognition, C/C++ coding, Cocoa programming, be familiar with hidden markov model and neural net algorithms. The primary are of focus will be on handwriting technology, but the ad notes that the development may go beyond Mac OS X and the iPhone.


This is really good news, since many people complained about touch screen keyboard and this may add an alternative input method which will make the device more versatile and accepted by a bigger group of people.
