Details of the iPhone’s Japanese keyboard, due to appear in iPhone Software v2.0, have been posted online. According to a TokyoMango posting accompanying the video, users will be able to choose between a QWERTY-style keyboard and a Japanese cell phone-style keyboard, and may then pick from a multi-tap style kana keyboard or a sliding keyboard. According to the post, “Japanese kana letters are organized in groups of five according to a beginning letter and corresponding vowels (a i u e o), so you can either put in the first letter and then hit the same key between 1-5 times to get the right sound (multi-tap), or you can put the first letter in and then tap and slide through to see all five sounds and pick the right one.” Continue reading to view a video claiming to show off the new keyboard in action.
