Microsoft Research has released an early version of a handwriting recognition system for small-screen devices, hoping to get feedback from Android Wear users as to its usefulness.

Microsoft’s Analog Keyboard builds on single-character handwriting recognition systems like Palm’s Graffiti to offer what the company claims is the perfect text input device for smartwatches.


Microsoft Smartwatch will be unveiled in next few weeks.
