It might to some degree. The problems would be that the Japanese already
have a reasonably good input system that they're used to and that they
don't tend to know kanji so well as the Chinese, and so may be more
comfortable with phonetic input. However, lots of handheld computers do
direct kanji input. You might get a clue by looking at the sales figures
for Atok for Palm, which adds direct kanji input to PalmOS handhelds
(which otherwise don't have it).
