I have an HTC Legend with Android 2.2. I can switch between the standard input method (on-screen qwerty) and Graffiti by a long press in an input field.

I would like to be able to type chinese characters (for a dictionary app etc) without using pinyin. For example using wubi, ckc or some similar method.

Is it possible to add a new input method of this sort or to enable it if already built-in?

There are a lot of alternative keyboards available on the playstore, which register as separate IMEs. One example I found is LIME HD Chinese IME1, another one Cantonese keyboard2:

LIME Cantonese keyboard

There are several more available (the developer of the second keyboard offers some other variants as well), many are linked on these apps' playstore pages.
