Inputting Far East Languages

It would seem that there are massive movements afoot to greatly improve the efficiency of inputting devices. Here are a few examples.

Qwerty Style Chinese Keyboard:

Japanese Mobiles - Handwriting recognition:

These developments, and other similar initiatives are potential huge for not just the domain industry, but the shift in power of the world economy.

Japan's lost decade has been as much to do with its inability to capitalise on the growth the US has enjoyed from the development of online markets, as it has the so called "economic bubble". It has not been able to do this effectively to date due to the higher barriers the Peoples of the Far East experience in going online.

To date ecommerce has been largely a English phenomenon. Even countries like France, Italy and even Germany have lagged a longway behind the US, UK. By contrast Korea and Thailand which are written uniquely in their own phonetic alphabets have faired comparatively well. It would seem that pace of change is going to accelerate again and there will be once more a sudden shift in balance of economic power in the world.

Best Regards
Dave Wrixon

Re: Inputting Far East Languages

Sorry Dave,
The same reason why cell phone use is more popular in Japan is the same reason why Japanese didn't adapt to using the internet so quickly. It's NTT's fault. Instead of making it easier & cheaper to use the internet they promoted using iMode which they also own, so they actually made a killing on anyone using the internet via their cell phone.

I was actually here in Japan through this struggle.

Yahoo made broadband in Japan more common. So they are still playing catchup a bit but a huge percent of people are jumping to the internet...
