Havent tried it in any other languages, but in Finnish it
is _really_ frustrating. It of course forses you to write
grammatically correct words (which are quite long in finnish)
and seems to confuse most of the words of 'spoken' language.
Concerning the input devices for mobile phones. I would
place my bets on one hand keyboards. Not those desktop
but one converted to fit into your semiopen fist. So you could
chord (one hand typing is sometises referred as 'chording'.
Chording means simultaneously pressing two or more buttons
to 'type' or 'chord' one letter) with one hand leaving the
other one free for other purposes. You could walk aroung
with you mobile typing at the same time.
