As you can see in the video above, which shows a side-by-side comparison of typing on the Omnia II versus on an iPhone, the way you type with Swype is you literally swipe your finger from one letter to the next as fast as you can. In the video, the Swypist beats the iPhone typist hands down, so to speak.


Quote:


A practiced iPhone typer can bang out a few sentences just as fast. I tried it myself and was able to basically tie the Swype user on the video. Still, I'll withhold judgment until I can actually try a Swype phone myself.

More phones with Swype built in will be launched next year. The Omnia II is a Windows Mobile phone. But Swype will be included in a new Android phone in the first quarter of 2010.

Will Swype give Android an edge over the iPhone?

Wow that looks nuts. Would really like to try that out.
Except that guy is typing incredibly slow on his iPhone. I guarantee I can type that out faster than the swype guy. In fact, I'm gonna try it in a minute.

p.s. It seems as if there would be a huge learning curve for it as well.
Just typed that out on my iPhone 10 seconds faster than the Swype guy.

That guy is FAST. But do people really go that fast all the time? Seems like it be very fatiguing... dunno, I don't have an iphone.

CONGRATS! you spend WAY TO MUCH TIME ON YOUR PHONE!
i on the other hand have rather large hands and find on screen keyboards clumsy and hard to use.

That would take me forever to learn...
I'm just fine with my palm.
Umm im pretty sure there's an app for that. It was some jailbroken app from 1.1.x I remember having it. It was pretty cool concept, would love to see it implemented on the iphone.

And how many times did this guy practice before actually beating it?

Just wait until people get practised at using Swype though and we'll see what's really faster.

But does it even matter? It's just one big pissing contest.
