I don't think it quite as clear cut as that, the Zaurus and IME 
have different philosophy. IME is not really a substitute for a 
keyboard whereas the Zaurus is. The Zaurus system tries to 
analyse the entire kanji, whereas IME tries to match parts of an 
incompletely drawn kanji

When you have a large screen available and keyboard I think the 
IME approach is better, although drawing kanji with a mouse takes 
a bit of practice and it requires a lot of CPU power.
