Using the on-screen keyboard is almost as impossible, that most either require a QWERTY pad in their pocket PC-enabled phones or PDAs. However, there’s a program that will help you use the on-screen keyboard and stylus, and not have a hard time using them: the Shapewriter:
ShapeWriter’s award winning technology elevates touch screen devices to new levels of usability. Instead of “hunting and pecking” letters, single gestures on a touch keyboard produce an entire word. For example: a stroke that roughly connects the w, o, r and d keys is recognized by ShapeWriter’s intelligent algorithms as the word “word”. Experienced users can write much faster on ShapeWriter than on a conventional keyboard. All ShapeWriter products run in real time on mobile devices and feature advanced editing, automatic formatting and capitalization, error tolerance, misspelling correction, and gesture commands.

The acquisition gets Google Inc. and additional 17,000 patents with 7,000 under process/application that were previously owned by Motorola. They may simply have had enough of the patent fights, bickering and decided to take the fight to them in the market they oh so love and rule.
