Default Phraze-It Virtual Keyboard

<a href="http://www.prevalentdevices.com/">http://www.prevalentdevices.com/</a><br /><br /><i>"Phraze-It is a full featured soft keyboard for your PDA with large keys for finger typing and a roomy text display area for editing in your favorite applications."</i><br /><br /><img src="http://www.pocketpcthoughts.com/images/hansberry/2006/20060325-phrazeit.gif" /><br /><br />I could see a real use for this, especially on a device that doesn't have a hardware keyboard. Even on my K-Jam I sometimes just need to enter a few letters on screen, like a quick SMS reply, and don't want to bother with the <a href="http://kjamming.blogspot.com/2005/12/downside.html">ridiculous stylus</a> the K-Jam comes with, or don't want to slide out the keyboard for 5-10 letters. Usually, I just use the edge of my fingernail with Fitaly, which definitely isn't designed for non-stylus use.<br /><br />You can see more about the keyboard on the Phraze-It home page where there is a flash animation showing how it works or a few more <a href="http://www.prevalentdevices.com/aboutphrazeit.htm">screenshots on the about page</a>. It is available for $23.99 from their site (you have to back off the $3 "download protection" fee :roll and there is a 7 day trial available.

Whew - not what I'd call cheap then for an input method! I'd find it difficult to pay that much for a Utility!

While the utility is nice, I really like the T9 "Phone Pad" input that ships with the JasJar when I need "one handed" input.

But, afaik, there is no "T9" input utility available for the PPC... hope I am wrong... does any one know of one?
