Mobile Technology

In May 2008, the mobile phone maker Samsung said that it would create a mobile phone specifically for the Irish-language market, which would include Irish-language predictive text.

Later on, in November 2008, Samsung then announced all of its new phones launched from 2009 onwards would have "Gael Fón" - a feature allowing Irish as a language option, including predictive text, which was developed by the company - as standard.

As of November 2012, Adaptxt, a predictive texting app for Android, also includes Irish (alongside Scottish Gaelic and Manx) as an available language.

Famous quotes containing the words technology and/or mobile:

    If we had a reliable way to label our toys good and bad, it would be easy to regulate technology wisely. But we can rarely see far enough ahead to know which road leads to damnation. Whoever concerns himself with big technology, either to push it forward or to stop it, is gambling in human lives.
    Freeman Dyson (b. 1923)

    From three to six months, most babies have settled down enough to be fun but aren’t mobile enough to be getting into trouble. This is the time to pay some attention to your relationship again. Otherwise, you may spend the entire postpartum year thinking you married the wrong person and overlooking the obvious—that parenthood can create rough spots even in the smoothest marriage.
    Anne Cassidy (20th century)
