The SVIAZ Expo trade fair in Russia is host to a fair number of cellphone introductions this week, one of which is the Pantech PG-2800 finger writing recognition phone, particularly well-suited for entering Chinese or Russian text. It's a tri-band clamshell handset with a 2-inch 260K color screen, a 1.3-megapixel camera, an external memory card slot and an MP3 player.
Its electronic dictionary is one of its unique functions that can be easily accessed with its finger writing recognition capability. We're not entirely sure if this feature is useful for the English language, but it sounds a bit like the old Graffiti language for Palm. We're also wondering if that comely young lass in the middle might be available for some private finger-writing lessons.
