I've been trying to find a good chinese pinyin and stroke ime for the transformer but none of the current IME solutions offer a good way to do handwriting input properly. As i was looking through the stock asus keyboard's options i noticed a bunch of additional languages including chinese pinyin and handwriting. The US version doesnt seem to have these available but would the WW version have it perhaps?

just checked my WW model (UK), it doesn't have chinese pinyin/handwriting either..

there's a chinese mandarin voice ime but i doubt that would work well...

just fyi..as for chinese IME in general, Sogou pinyin input is always my personal favourite and its PC version is the most popular IME in China..

there's a version for honeycomb already..

You can get it off the official website: http://shouji.sogou.com/download1.php,

the link for AndroidPad is : http://61.135.130.23/download/androidpad_1.0_sweb.apk

great keyboard layout to fully take advantage of hc's big screen..and it's got Pinyin (2 different keyboard layouts), Bihua (stroke) and Handwriting!...it also updates the dictionary every so often to download the latest chinese vocabulary...it understands the chinese grammar very well thanks to the data collected from its massive user base in China.

attached some screenshots
