The most popular input on smartphones at the moment is a virtual QWERTY keyboard, like that the keyboard on the iPhone, it looks like a new input format called Swype might be about to challenge the current favourite.
In the video below you can see someone using Swype with one finger to type a message, whilst at the same time someone else is using the QWERTY input on the iPhone to type the same message with two fingers.

The first mobile phone to feature this new Swype input is the Samsung Omnia II which goes on sale early next month. Have a look and our article on Android vs iPhone to see which smartphone and mobile platform is best for you.Filed Under: Mobile Phone News, Technology News
