Could anyone confirm whether the new iPad has handwriting recognition?

I am one of the few people who is keeping hold of my Palm Pilot because I think better when writing by hand (rather than typing on a keyboard). As iPad is designed to help people 'create', I can't think of a better feature. (To be honest, it's the lack of handwriting recognition that keeps me from going to the store now to buy one. I came close to buying a Dell Inspiron Duo the moment I saw it, but decided to wait for a lighter version (or an iPad)).

If there isn't the possibility now, is there any chance that handwriting recognition will be added in iOS 5 or as a separate application that can be used with iPad aps?
