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.
