Question iWnn IME: why and how did it come pre-loaded on my Nexus 7?

Hey All,

My Nexus 7 just arrived SIB (sexy in box) and I noticed an IME in the selection list labeled "iWnn IME" for Japanese input.

From what I can gather, it's put together by a company called OMRON and has some pretty interesting features (personal dictionary sync across devices, context prediction, etc.).

How did these guys come pre-installed on a stock Google device? What am I missing here?

No idea. I just disabled that one and the Chinese one too.

I had Korean, Chinese Pinyin and iWnn IME Japanese on my tablet as well, all disabled but not removable.

Have a theory it's there for the sake of compatibility. I remember from browsing on PCs I would see weird box shapes on certain websites when in fact it was because I was missing chinese/japanese language packs.

For other reasons, I did a factory reset and those apps (iWinn IME, Korean Keyboard, etc) all went away with the other problem.
A reset is good.
