Abstract: Nowadays, communication is very important among people. SMS and email are the common communication tools through electronic devices. The PocketPC with MSWindows Mobile can also send out and receive messages via the network. However, what we concern is whether the user is familiar with the input method, especially Chinese input method. With this kind of concern to users, we developed G6 (diGit 6) Bihua Chinese Input Method (六碼筆劃輸入法). To enhance the mobility, we are going to put G6 onto the MS-Windows Mobile platform. It may be the easiest Chinese input method all over the world: easy to learn, easy to use, and easy to remember. With considering the characteristics of the Chinese characters, we have found that the Chinese characters can be divided into 5 basic stroke types. To make use of this uniqueness other than the other language, Dr. Lai-Man PO invented (3+3) rule by using the first 3 strokes and the last 3 strokes for single character, and the first 3 strokes of the first and last characters for a phrase. As a result, each character or phrase should be encoded by at most six digits, which could significantly improve the input speed.
