Jimmy1, I did hear a Nokia and US media content related rumour. Hope it pans out.

Swype ships with the Droid 2, so it isn't like it's exclusive to Symbian.

N8 and N9 look promising, but there are still plenty of reasons to purchase an Android or iOS device. Nokia has its work cut out for itself.

With all the ruckus, can this app be uninstalled?

I kind of think swype for resistive phones on any os is kind of a waste of time.

i have been using this on my mini for quite a few minutes now and i absolurely love it. I am also of the opinion though that this will work better on a capacitative screen..

Yes It can. The good news for c drive space starved n97 owners is that this can also be installed on mass memory..:)

slideIT is much better
 
the word suggestion system of dasur is better with no silly small pop-ups and prediction is much better with "sloppy" swipes than swype.
though i like the keyboard skin of swype.

BTW there's a great method to write on DASUR which i made up myself(sure other people might be doing it already its no rocket science)
try using your both thumbs to type like a regular qwerty except the following thing in mind...
say you want to type "because" then i follow the following little "non-swipe technique"
1.right thumb on b
2. then without removing the right thumb from b put left thumb on e and then remove your right thum from b
3. slide your left thumb to c
4. then slide left thumb to a
5. now without removing the left thumb from a put rt thumb on u and then remove left thumb from a
6. again keeping the rt thumb on u put left thumb on s and remove rt thumb from u
7.slide left thumb to e

it looks a little tedious on reading but its hell fast-combines with the auto-correction feature of DASUR its faster easier more accurate and less tiring than regular QWERTY and the swype method too. may require a little paragraph long worth of practice...

Unfortunately it doesn't install on the i8910. :frown:

I f@cking love this!

But I checked the version and its just demo. Will this expire?

Also, will this be incorporated to our handsets soon via firmware update?

Thanks a lot!

A waste of time for you if you wish; otherwise, hush, dude. This is innovation. When this turns into commercial stage and gets incorporated into our handsets, we now have the best of both worlds -- touch typing and swiping.

Dasur SlideIt
 
Dasur Slideit is not bad, but when using it on my n97 to write a text message, it replaces the amount of characters left with "SlideIt" which is annoying.
