Handspring OEMs CIC handwriting software

Handspring Treo handheld devices will come standard with Communication Intelligence Corporation (CIC) handwriting input software following an OEM agreement struck between the two firms.

Handspring will bundle CIC’s RecoEcho Plus on its full line of Treo communicators and organisers, and existing users can downloaded the app for free from Handspring’s web site.

With RecoEcho Plus, Treo customers can alternatively choose between entering data through RecoEcho Plus or through the built-in QWERTY keyboard.

Trial copies of CIC's Jot and WordComplete will also be available to new and existing Treo customers. Jot allows data input using a more natural printed letter method and WordComplete provides a shorthand style means of entering words from a pop-up pick list, which reduces input time and improves accuracy.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
