Ashish, it does play blindfold, but move input is with a board.

Comments:
+ Very strong Hiarcs 12.1 Engine. Maybe it is the strongest Engine available for PDA.
+ Very Fast Connection with huge online opening book and with >4 million game database. A search on position gives answer within 2-10 seconds.
- Piece design of the queen is very ugly. Why not copy the excellent design of the Fritz pieces?
- Opening Book screen + analysis screen is not available as a combination option.
Only Notation + opening book or Notation + analysis screen is available.

Query only: Can this Pocket Fritz3 be installed in a mobile phone? If so, what type of mobile phone/s can it be installed? Or maybe Pocket Fritz3 has its own mobile unit suited for its purpose? Please advise accordingly. Thank you!

But does it do blindfold (input by notation, rather than board) chess? That seems like a pretty basic feature to implement, and so good for visualization practice, yet does not seem available anywhere. I would buy PocketFritz (only) for this feature.
