PhatWare Announces CalliGrapher 8.2 for Palm Treo 700w Smartphone

Upgrades to Award-Winning Handwriting Recognition Software for Windows Mobile- based Devices Support Square Screen Devices

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – February 1, 2006 – PhatWare Corporation, a leading provider of software products and professional services for mobile and desktop computers, announces CalliGrapher 8.2. The award-winning handwriting recognition software for Windows Mobile-based devices is now optimized for use on square screen devices, such as the Windows Mobile-based Palm® Treo™ 700w smartphone.

CalliGrapher, one of the most popular Pocket PC handwriting recognition applications on the market, analyzes pen strokes written in any application window or in the designated Write Pad area, then converts those pen strokes into text and sends the recognized text to the target application. Employing advanced fuzzy logic and neural net techniques, CalliGrapher recognizes arbitrary alphanumeric strings as well as words contained in its integrated dictionary.

Additional improvements to the software include an improved algorithm for CalliGrapher Statistical Analyzer, which allows CalliGrapher to learn the user’s writing habits and automatically fix common recognition errors based on the user’s writing patterns. Version 8.2 also has internal improvements to provide users with the best performing handwriting recognition program.

"We are pleased that CalliGrapher will now support handwriting recognition on the new Windows Treo device," said Stan Miasnikov, president of PhatWare. "Now consumers using devices with a hard keyboard have a more natural way to enter information."

CalliGrapher 8.2 supports devices running on Windows Mobile 2003 or later. The software can be purchased from the PhatWare Web site for $39.95. CalliGrapher 8.2 is a free upgrade for users of 8.0 or later. Owners of previous versions can upgrade to CalliGrapher 8.2 for $24.95.

A Review of Operator Branding on Windows Mobile

In a previous career at O2 UK, I managed the Xda programme, which included the branding and customisation to give devices a uniquely O2 look and feel, and make it easier for new users to use their equipment. I worked closely with the user community, courtesy of the excellent Data Support customer care team at O2 and in association with the UK Windows Mobile user group 4WinMobile. In this way the evolution of Xda would in part be based on how the community was responding and what items were emerging as important.

Readers and customers of the operators may be curious to understand what exactly drives an operator to brand a device and add software to “improve” ease of use – especially for more advanced users who feel they don’t need the extra support. I have used the evolution of Xda over the last 4 years as the test subject.

I have focused on devices that use the Microsoft Operating system Windows Mobile, as this is where operator enhancement has been most widely used – a testament to the flexibility of that software, and items that were missed but glaringly obvious in retrospect. (Source: A Karantze, GeekZone)
