Swype Launches Beta for Symbian Touch Phones
Swype and Nokia today announced a beta version of Swype text input for Symbian S60 5th Edition phones. The limited beta of Swype works as it does on other touch devices, and allows users to trace out words on their touch screen rather than peck at them. The predictive software analyzes the trace patterns and helps cut down on text entry time. Right now, the devices that can run Swype for Symbian include the Nokia N97, N97 mini, X6, 5800, and 5230. Nokia and Swype hope that beta testers will provide feedback about any bugs or problems they may encounter.
