Swype Has Been Bought By Nuance

Tony Hannides Oct 7, 2011 0

If you’ve every used the Swype keyboard on an Android or Windows Mobile Phone you know what I mean when I say it’s a pretty nifty product. Currently still in beta, Swype allows users to type with one finger by literally swiping to the corresponding letter to form words. This keyboard was so revolutionary it helped win the Guinness Book of Records title Fastest Texter. Today it was reported that Nuance, a voice recognition company, has bought the company for $102.5 million. Nuance did not say what plans they had for the company or the product but hopefully we can see some great voice integration with this great keyboard.
