Google spells こんにちは as こんにちは but when I type "konnnichiwa" I've got こんにちわ and if I do space I've got : コンニチワ ...

maybe don't need to trust google here ? or there is some another way to write it

「は」 is always entered into an IME as "ha", even if it is romanized as "wa" due to use as a particle.

so must I type konnnichiha for こんにちは ? –  Heather Oct 7 '11 at 7:20
    
Yes, although there possibly may be variants for 「ん」 and 「ち」 ("n'" and "ti" respectively). You won't really have to worry about those though. –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Oct 7 '11 at 7:25
    
Same goes for こんばんは, by the way. –  Alenanno Oct 7 '11 at 9:15
