For those who don’t know what Swype is, it’s the fastest way to type on mobile devices. It is such a big hit among Android users and devices such as Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab already have Swype pre-installed. Earlier on, Swype also made an appearance for S60 5th Edition for Touch via Nokia beta labs.
Nokia N8 and C7 users can get Swype from the OVI store or download directly here.
The limitation now however is that it only works in landscape mode.

Nokia claims it’s new AMOLED with Clear Black Display trumps all other display technologies when it comes to visibility under direct sunlight.
Engadget has put up a side-by-side comparison between Nokia’s latest E7 with the iPhone 4 Retina Display and although we have some reservations on the accuracy of the camera’s ability to capture accurately what our eyes can under direct sunlight – taking into account polarisation and everything – but we’ll agree that there’s barely a discernible difference between the two display technologies.
Check out the video on Engadget’s site.
Nokia’s recently introduced C6, C7 and E7 comes with a Clear Black Display (CBD). The engadget team that was covering the Nokia World 2010 event managed to compare a prototype E7 against the iPhone 4.
According to engadget, the iPhone 4’s 3.5″ retina display at 960×640 seems to have noticeable blue warmth and it isn’t as vibrant or bright as the CBD. However the CBD does seem to be oversaturated.
From their short play, they reported that the Nokia E7’s AMOLED is just as good as the Samsung Galaxy S‘s Super AMOLED screen. We’ve yet to see its true potential outdoors considering CBD’s true strength lies on visibility under sunlight. Check out more comparison shots after the jump.
