Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

Mobile phone networks are increasingly supporting the transmission of textual messages between mobile phones (e.g. SMS short messages). It is reasonable to envisage increased use of these facilities and increased integration with other electronic services such as e-mail and large screen pagers. However, the use of textual messages from mobile phones is inherently limited by the very poor text input facilities: mobile phones only have 12 main keys with 5-10 additional function keys (compared to the smallest laptop keyboard of around 65 keys).
