Re: T9 keyboard on 4.3

In Android 4.3 we have no preinstalled T9 keyboard. I've forwarded this as feedback internally but i don't know if it will be added again.

It seems that you will have to download a different T9 keyboard

Yea i know, but there is no one near as good, dont want any else. Disapointing that ill have too root and void warranty to be able install Sony`s own keyboard.

Re: T9 keyboard on 4.3

Ty for reply, maybe you could make the keyboard as an app? i would pay for it just to get it.

Otherwise its a sell on my compact and back to something older.

Re: T9 keyboard on 4.3

Before reading this I was going to upgrade to a Z1 compact as I had previously loved the T9 keyboard on my Xperia Z. Looks like I'll be getting a HTC now instead. Well done Sony for removing such a brilliant feature!
