Does anyone know if this has been added for the final release, if it hasn't, Sony Ericsson are idiots, most people EXPECT it nowadays, especially Nokia owners. How can they attempt to lure people away from Nokia's phones (eg 7650) without T9 Dictionary (predictive text) support?

On a related note, if they havne't added it, is it possible for a 3rd party programmer to add this functionality to the P800?

To me, this seems like the only chinck in the P800's already thick armour.

I don't share your point of view guys. I have been the not so proud owner of Nokia phones for the last four years and I've always exponentionally hated that ridiculous function. I live in Paris, and I write my SMS in french. The thing is always wrong, 90% percent of times suggesting the wrong words. The hell with Nokia anyway, I've had two 8210 go down on screen failures after not much time...

Anyway, with the added ease of input because of the onscreen keyboard on the P800, you're better off without the T9, in my opinion.

Peace.

No T9 ?? No way :evil: Who cares if you cant use it ? it would be nice to have the option to turn it off. Would it be possible to have an application permit the predictive input?
