Following the popularity of the Android’s Swype, a Beta version for Symbian have been released allowing Nokia users to make use of the innovative text input system. Recycling your mobile and getting an Android or Nokia might be a great idea if you want easier texting.

The genius of Swype is that instead of tapping the touchscreen to type a word, you can use your finger to trace past the desired letters of your word which makes composing a message speedier and more efficient.

Using revolutionary technology, the software has been designed to recognize certain patterns and guess words. If it is unsure on which word you want, a range of choices appear so you can select the correct one you are after.

It is also incredibly fast and text records have been broken using Swype. Earlier this year, Guinness declared Franklin Page the fastest texter after typing the phrase "The razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human" in just over 35 seconds.

However, that record was broken by Brit Melissa Thompson who shaved off almost 10 seconds to type the same phrase in 25.94 seconds using the Swype entry system.

And now those with a Nokia phone running Symbian OS can test Swype. However, it is only available on pre-installed phone and not available for download seeing as it is in beta phase. However, if testing proves popular, it could soon make its way as a standard Nokia feature. It might make people who don’t like tapping touchscreens sell mobile phones and convert to Nokia.
