Nokia Diexie: Evolved input method for Chinese

There are many input methods available on Nokia devices for Chinese speakers, most of them third party apps. However, none of them are as fast as what you're about to see.

Nokia Research Center, Beijing released a new beta application called Diexie, that helps Chinese speakers write entire sentences without having to pause between each character.

Check out the presentation video below:

This app was designed to be used on smaller screens too.

"As you begin writing the next character over the previous character, the previous character begins to fade away, creating an overlapped visual, allowing you to concentrate on finishing the next character."

This is not an actual input method, it's full blown application that allows you to copy the text written and past it in whatever application you need it. Depending on the feedback, Nokia will probably turn it into an input method for Chinese speakers, or leave it as it is.

You can download it from here. Leave your feedback with the Nokia team so they'll be able to improve this app.
