Writing on the Wall for Graffiti

PalmSource is turning over a new leaf for handwriting recognition, replacing its idiosyncratic software amid a growth in popularity for keyboards in the handheld industry and amid a continuing patent battle with Xerox.

The operating system subsidiary of handheld maker Palm announced Monday that it has signed a licensing agreement with Redwood Shores, Calif.-based Communication Intelligence to use its Jot handwriting recognition software--dubbed Graffiti 2, powered by Jot--in current and future versions of the Palm OS.

"People don't want to learn a new alphabet (when they purchase a new device)," said Michael Higashi, a director of marketing at PalmSource.

Quite like the current Palm users who may have to learn a new one if they upgrade?
