Swype Typing Coming to Nokia Symbian Phones
      09/01/10 02:41 PM

We've already seen Swype, a new way to type on a virtual keyboard, on several Samsung phones. Now Nokia has sent Swype to its beta labs for final tests on Symbian phones. The beta release is supported on S60 5th edition touch-screen devices: the Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic, Nokia 5230, Nokia N97, N97mini and the Nokia X6. If you have one of these Nokia phones visit this page to download Swype beta:

Key features

* Standard QWERTY keyboard layout makes Swype easy to learn
* Use a stylus or finger ? Swype?s amazing input path analyzer allows you to go fast and sloppy. Just make a reasonable effort to trace through the word and Swype will do the rest
* Double Tap Editing ? Make a mistake? Double tap on a word to bring up a list of other possible matches.
* Auto-Spacing
* Auto-Capitalization
* Auto Spelling Correction
* Automatic Help ? Swype detects when you may be having trouble or might benefit from a particular feature and prompts you with helpful tips and instructions
* Instant access to Symbols, Numbers and Editing functions
* 65,000-word Learning Dictionary ? Chances are the word you are typing is already in the Swype dictionary. If it isn?t, just tap it out once followed by a space and Swype will remember it for future use.
