MacRumors has dissected the latest Snow Leopard OS build (10A354) and has found an interesting tidbit … Chinese handwriting technology built into Mac OS X.
Last May (2008) Apple acquired both Japanese and Chinese handwriting technology for use in the iPhone. Now it appears that Apple will be incorporating this same technology into Mac OS X for use on touch screen devices to be named later. As Mac Rumors states; “Most interesting, however, is the fact that it [Chnese handwriting recognition technology] is specifically enabled on multi-touch capable machines. We presume this to include Apple’s notebooks which include multi-touch trackpads.”
iPhonAsia might add that the rumored iTablet will likely be a 10″ inch screen multi-touch device.
