If you need to enter words that are not in the dictionary, hold your
finger over each key so that you get the magnifying popup. Then it
does not bother being predictive.

What you *actually* want is for people (probably not trolltech, too
much effort for too little overall gain) to develop dictionaries for
non-english languages, and have them posted somewhere obviously.

The predictive keyboard *is* lovely. It's the slickest part of my tech
life right now. I love the way you slide to other layouts
(small/caps/punctuation/numbers). It feels Appleish, even.
