Look at the picture below then you can see the remove button is gray out so I can not remove it in a regular way. Any trick to remove it ?

Is the the keyboard which is actually selected (and in use) at the monent you are trying to remove it ? – Hennes Feb 2 '13 at 14:57
Seem to be. It's always selected. – JatSing Feb 2 '13 at 15:04
Can you remove it if you set another language/keyboard as default. (See also… ) – Hennes Feb 2 '13 at 15:30
@Hennes Exactly what you said. Thank you ! – JatSing Feb 2 '13 at 20:09

You can't remove the services related to the Default Input Language.

In your example, that's what's going on.

Change the Default Input Language to something else, and you should then be able to remove the keyboard in question.
