    No. By the time you pull out your stylus or pda/pen...you could already be done on the keyboard.

    I am a youngen so graffiti was on its way out when I my and my kyocera first me and had our little fling,,,,,,, before the treo inserted itself in to my life

    But with the time I spent using graffiti it drove my absolutely friggen crazy,,,,,,, After 3 agonizing months I found Fatfinger on screen keyboard to replace that old time inferior method of text entry.

    Do the 3rd party graffiti apps not do the trick for ya?

    No, not at all. Used it for 4-5 years.

    Don't miss it at all. I've found any handwriting/symbol recognition program to be vastly inferior to even thumbboards.

    I do miss WIFI.

    I (and most here) don't miss it, but if you do, you can get graffiti for free.

    Search for "Graffiti Anywhere". There are similar free addons to allow graffiti 1.

    I miss Graffiti; I tried Graffiti Anywhere, but it was clunky at best, never seemed to work right. I don't particularly care for the thumb keyboard; what I really wish I could have is a device where the keyboard slides out (like another PDA whose name I can't recall); then, on the touch-screen, I could use Graffiti and never pull out the kbd. unless I really wanted to use it. But I get the distinct impression that I'm in the minority...

    I used to love graffitti. I was fast and accurate at it, I thought the keyboards were clumsey. Then I was pushed into the Treo600 and about a week later I found myself starting to like the keyboard. After a year I don't miss it one bit. I can do everything thing faster now.

    Nor do I. I love that I don't have to change the grafitti-damaged screen protector once a month.

    Thought I was a graffiti die hard, the Treo 650 converted me to keyboard almost instantly.

    I am a long time palm user and thought I would miss it. I have grafitti anywherre installed and find myself using it less and less as I get more proficient with the keyboard.

    I've been a Palm user since the Palm III and don't miss it at all. I hate apps that make me use the stylus as it is.

    I did like Graffiti 1 on my Palm M505 but when I upgraded to a Tungsten E (which has Graffiti 2) I couldn't get to grips with it. I find the keyboard far more functional than both versions though, and wouldn't contemplate using it with a Treo 650.

    I wonder if there has been any study of the speed of typing on the thumbboard vs. graffiti (both in terms of fastest and average speeds).

    I've gotta think that keyboard will be way faster than graffiti.

    Even though I used Graffiti 1 on a Vx for years, the sight of someone stroking the letters in using a stylus looks clumsy to me now.

    Saw an interesting article from the New Scientist:

    Do not ditch the stylus just yet

    USING a stylus to enter data on a PDA, tablet PC or other hand-held device is an exercise in frustration. You either tap the letters one-by-one on a virtual keyboard, or rely on handwriting-recognition software to identify your scrawl. But for speed, neither method comes close to touch-typing.

    Now IBM has developed a way to write with a stylus that lets users reach 80 words per minute with minimal training. It's called Shark (shorthand-aided rapid keyboarding). Rather than tapping letters out, users drag the stylus over each letter of a word on a virtual keyboard. The software then finds the most likely word based on the letters covered. Humans are good at recognising patterns, so users need little training to learn to trace word patterns without looking at the individual keys. Should the lexicon of almost 70,000 words prove insufficient, new words can be tapped out the old-fashioned way.

    Clever, but simple idea! Kinda like T9 text input in some respects.

    What's the big deal with that? It appears like TextPlus, which uses a dictionary search to fill-ahead. Works with keyboard as well as graffiti.
