I’ve got to admit, the predictive text on the BlackBerry Dev Alpha virtual keyboard looks really cool…
Think predictive text is a feature only available on touch screen virtual keyboards? Think again! Last night while rummaging through my phone’s settings I came across the option to enable predictive text on my Blackberry Bold 9700. To enable this feature, go to Options, Language and Text Input, Show Text Input Options. There it is! Predictive Text Input!
Once enable this option and save the changes, create a message. You’ll now notice that when typing text your BlackBerry will offer suggestions based on what you’ve typed. To select the suggested word, simply hit enter, or, to select a suggested word that isn’t highlighted, scroll to the desired word and hit enter. Pretty cool!
