    Great news, I’ve read and starting downloading. The handwriting recognition is free till some June (I read it briefly). It needs 26.2 MB of dictionary file, which goes into the card.

      I’m going to compare with Hanping – a good Chinese dictionary. The handwriting on it is only available if you buy it.
