comment T9 patented while QWERTY is not?
But the layout with 12 keys is easier to use with one hand, isn't it?

comment T9 patented while QWERTY is not?
Thanks for clarification. Nevertheless, this is only true for the US. In Europe, for example, patents last (at least) 20 years and it seems that the patent has been filed in 2002: worldwide.espacenet.com/publicationDetails/…

comment T9 patented while QWERTY is not?
Okay, thank you very much for helping me! And sorry for this question which seems to be a stupid one ;( So I may use the keyboard layout with 12 keys but I must not offer any suggestions for predictive text because the T9 patent covers this all. Right?

Thanks for this link! Why do you (all) think that the layout of 12 keys (9 with letters) is not protected but only the prediction technology? "The keyboard has twelve keys, nine of them labeled with numerous letters and other symbols, and those nine plus one more are labeled each with one of the ten digits."

comment T9 patented while QWERTY is not?
Thank you very much! So what is actually protected by this patent (T9)? I can use a layout with 12 keys where 9 hold letters but only the technology for prediction is protected? This means that I cannot use the layout with 9/12 keys, either, because there's no other way of prediction that makes sense, as I wrote in the question. Right? Just displaying the words that are possible with the given combination of letters - ordered by frequency in descending order - this is T9, isn't it?

As T9 means "Text on 9 keys", "T9 layout" is the layout belonging to this "Text on 9 keys".

Thank you very much for this detailed answer. It's just that I thought it's a clear case and easy to decide. I wrote in the comment to the question (above) why I thought this.

Thank you, Thomas. I just thought it may be a clear case as there are sooo many application in Android Market (all must meet the guidelines) that use AES Encryption. Imagine, all the banking apps, the password storage apps etc ... And I don't sell my applications, I offer them for free. So asking a lawyer is expensive.

So it's no problem anymore? Do I understand this text correctly? But one question is still important for me: The Java JCE has been approved in a review process. Do I have to ask for a review in the US as well?
