Gundam built into iPhone

July 29, 2008

I was playing around with the Japanese text input on the iPhone 2.0 software. QWERTY and kana input are both good. It’s actually easier to type Japanese punctuation on the phone than it is on desktop OS X (unless you have an actual Japanese keyboard, of course). I decided to try a katakana word, and the first one that came to mind was Gundam. Notice I didn’t put in the dakuten as I typed, but ガンダム came up alongside カンタム, which would be a direct conversion of what I typed. That means Gundam is wired into the iPhone’s Japanese dictionary.
