Swype for Symbian now in Beta

Wednesday 01st, September 2010 / 18:19 Written by

Hey Symbian users, Swype is gonna hit your Nokia phones pretty soon. Android users have been using Swype keyboards on their devices for quite sometime now. I use it on my Android devices, and Swype much faster than I can type using the touchscreen.

What’s Swype, you ask?
Swype provides a faster and easier way to input text on any screen. With one continuous finger or stylus motion across the screen keyboard, the patented technology enables users to input words faster and easier than other data input methods—at over 40 words per minute. More about how you can get this app on your Symbian touchscreen device right after the video.

If you don’t know about Swype, here’s a video to show you what’s it’s about.

If you’re one of those who love tinkering around with new software on your symbian devices, head over to the Swype for Symbian Page on Nokia Beta Labs and get a copy of the app and install it on your phone –betalabs.nokia.com/apps/swype-for-symbian
