Posted on June 16, 2010 | No CommentsWe told you this was coming: Swype has just made it possible for any Android handset owner to download their innovative touch-screen enabled text-input application straight from the website. Which means a whole lot of people can henceforth start challenging that Guinness World Record for speedy textin' using Swype. Up until today, Swype came pre-installed on only a fraction of available Android phones (including the all new Motorola Droid X) due to its licensing business model, although the company did open up to 25,000 eager beta testers a couple of months ago - most of whom seem to have completely fallen in love with it. Well, anyone can download it now, but only for a limited time (a couple of days) and with a somewhat limited feature set. Important: it won't work if you have a phone that came pre-installed with Swype and support will be via Swype's forums only.
Posted on April 8, 2010 | No CommentsEarlier today, a senior analyst at Digitimes research claimed that Apple is planning to launch a 5 to 7 inch version of the iPad in the first quarter of 2011. The smaller iPad will be priced below $400 and will target consumers who focus mainly on reading and do not have a high demand for text input. For comparison, the current iPad has a 9.7 inch display while the iPod touch has a 3.5 inch display, but both the Nook and Kindle have a 6-inch screen.
Posted on February 23, 2010 | No CommentsThis strange app is a touchscreen interface that connects people, places, and things using "clouds" of items and people. It basically makes Venn diagrams of your contacts and allows you to share and explore content and messages. This looks way too weird for the average user but clearly someone out there may want to move Sven and Nikola to a timeline and figure out which emails came from each person and which emails overlap. The text input system is actually quite cool, however, because it predicts the words you're about to type. Pop over to 4 minutes in to see how that system works. Video after the jump.
Posted on January 26, 2010 | No CommentsAt this point in the game, you know as much about the Apple tablet as we do — squat. Sure, some esteemed tech pundits seem to have it all figured out, but they don’t. Hell, Apple might not even announce the iPad tomorrow. That’s what I’m praying for. But we’re curious, what’s your ideal Apple tablet look like? [...]
Posted on January 8, 2010 | No CommentsWe’re big fans of the idea of external keyboards for the iPhone around these parts, so I more than get where ION’s going with the nearly full-sized keyboard accessory they just launched. Unfortunately, decisions on Apple’s part keep the idea from really being worthwhile. You see, limitations of the iPhone platform prevent accessories like this from [...]
Posted on December 9, 2009 | No CommentsIf you're one of the 3 million or so people rocking the original Samsung Omnia, you might be feelin' like you've been left out in the cold now that the Omnia II is on the shelves. At the very least, you're probably a bit envious of the Omnia II's finger-swiping text input method, Swype. Yeah? Don't fret - we've got good news.
Posted on October 24, 2009 | No CommentsHey, you -- yeah you, the BlackBerry Storm owner over there. You listening? Good. That mythical software update we heard about just last week is obviously the real deal, and a screen grab from Verizon's internal systems has shown up to prove it. We're told that it should go live tomorrow (that's October 25th for those in strange, potentially illegitimate time zones) at 6PM. On the whole, it'll make your Storm act a lot more like the forthcoming Storm2, but specifically you can expect a "faster, more accurate and more natural text input experience, word completion, a virtual QWERTY keyboard in portrait view and enhanced sensitivity when editing, copying and pasting." You'll also get the ability to "enable Auto Correction as opposed to Word Completion in landscape view." The full changelog should be coming soon, so hang tight! Oh, and cancel those plans for tomorrow night, okay?
Update: Check out the full (purported) changelog after the break!Permalink | Email this | Comments
Posted on July 6, 2009 | No CommentsThe Viliv X70 isn’t the first UMPC, nor is it the most feature-filled. It’s isn’t the most expensive or cheapest. But I’m willing to bet that it’s one of the most important devices in its class. The X70, and it’s little brother the S5, offer a lot of mobile goodness for a relatively low [...]
