ExIdeas announces the launch of MessagEase for Tablet PCs and Windows mobile devices. This new offering is supposed to provide a fast and easy text entry alternative for Tablet PCs.

"Text entry is the weakest link for a Tablet PC. The QWERTY keyboard is designed for ten fingers not one finger or one stylus. Pecking tiny QWERTY keys is a very arduous task, frustrating Tablet PC users" said Saied Nesbat, Ph.D., President and CEO of ExIdeas.

MessagEase technology is also available for PDAs and is applicable to cell phones (demo available today), TV remote controls, watches, car navigation systems, or any small device that cannot accommodate a ten-finger QWERTY keyboard. Currently MessagEase enjoys a substantial and growing number of dedicated users among Pocket PC and Palm PDA owners. To date more than 300,000 copies of MessagEase products have been downloaded and more than 1500 users have joined its Yahoo users group.
