Text Input on WP7

Is text input supported on WP7. If not, how difficult would it be to do so. I'm guessing there's some complexity involved since WP7 uses a soft keyboard.

I am leaning towards leaving the OSD keyboard up to the library user. There is some infrastructure (IWritable interface) for direct support in place, but I don't want to advance this until I have a clear concept fleshes out that works well across all platforms. Perhaps opening the OSD keyboard when the end user presses the A button with an InputControl in focus would work on the Xbox while WP7 users would just have to touch the InputControl to bring it up?
