Interesting WP keyboard predictive text suggestions.

One of the things I really enjoyed when from from S^3 to WP was the virtual keyboard. Despite the weird layout in landscape (not taking up the whole width) it’s amazing to use. I love the letter accuracy, the keyboard sounds that are separate for different types of keys, and the way the keyboard is often contextual, intuitively changing if you’re writing in an email address box (including @) and knowing to switch back from numbers/symbols to letters when appropriate. The best thing however is the predictive text, erasing the rare mistakes. I remember getting so frustrated typing on that darned keyboard on my N8. The larger  4″ screen in my Omnia 7 helped but even the 800’s 3.7″ was super speedy .

Something I wasn’t aware of was how WP can sometimes suggest words based off other words. As shown by some redditors, typing ‘blah’ would suggest you type ‘blah’ to complete blah blah blah etc.

Typing Arnold would suggest Schwarzenegger (Chome btw is trying to correct this as Slazenger), type Scarlett, and it would suggest Johansen. Neat.
