ATLANTA, GA - ART Advanced Recognition Technologies Inc. announced that an upgraded version of its advanced natural handwriting recognition software, smARTwriter, has been chosen by BenQ for their new P30 smart phone, which includes camera and PDA functionalities. The upgraded smARTwriter uses a handwriting user interface with both major European and Chinese. smARTwriter has enabled BenQ to produce its new P30 smartphone in three versions: one device for Western Europe carrying English, French, Italian, German and Spanish; one for mainland China with Simplified Chinese and English; and the third for Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore markets in Traditional Chinese and English. "We are very pleased with the results of our strong cooperation with ART. Choosing an already proven embedded handwriting recognition solution that operates seamlessly with the UIQ operating system gave us real peace of mind," said Harrison Chang, senior associated vice president of BenQ. "At the same time, the improved smARTwriter now provides the P30 with a number of exciting new features - like the easy, one-click movement between all different writing modes and languages, abc, 123, symbols or characters in Chinese, and 'best match' choices for both Chinese versions. We're highly confident that ART's flexible and convenient UI will be welcomed by all our customers." "As well as best of breed technologies, ART always tries to push back the boundaries of the total user experience," said Itay Riemer, director of sales & business development of ART Advanced Recognition Technologies Inc. "That's why we gave the latest smARTWriter a comprehensive update, creating a UI that is even more user friendly."
