Video shows BlackBerry Z10 with Chinese handwriting recognition in BBM
Since BlackBerry has not really promoted this feature it is unclear whether it will be expanded to other languages. While BlackBerry users might be celebrating this as something new, you might recall a similar feature being available on 2008's LG Dare. The Dare allowed users to use their finger tip to input numbers and letters in English instead of using the virtual QWERTY keyboard.

Good news! I'm glad to hear that BB Z10 has this feature too!
Keep it up, BB! :)

Really good to see BB is trying to embrace the touch screen after being a keyboard oriented design for so long.
Definitely not a new thing tho, I'm pretty sure iOS has had this feature for a few years now. Go keyboard and Swype for Android had plugins for a couple of years as well. Hopefully the stock Android keyboard will eventually do the same (if it hasn't already, still on ICS myself).

I bought Z10 since 3 weeks. It is beautiful, but not wooow.
I'm still seeing a very tough path ahead Blackberry. However, good luck BB.

The software is great, but hardware is not as wowy like that of 920.
