Samsung's Omnia II handset was the first phone to feature Swype, the super-fast input method for texting. It's now officially the world's fastest way to text, breaking the Guinness World Record with five seconds to spare.
In this installment of Now Available: Dell's snazzy Vostro 1015 laptop, WowWee's sweet-as-cinnamon pico projector, the not-so-hot Samsung Omnia II, and the Nokia N900, a smartphone that's so smart it's not even a smartphone.
Samsung, stop doing this.
QWERTY is pretty much the king of smartphone text input. But there's a new challenger on the horizon. It's called Swype, it works with one-hand input and, yeah, it is pretty fast.
I still don't know why the Omnia II's 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen is resistive, but the WinMo 6.5 phone will go head-to-head with Verizon's own Moto Droid. Leaked docs suggest it'll be $200 on contract after $100 mail-in rebate.
