Move over T9, here comes Swype

The history of human-computer interaction is littered with alternative ways to enter and manipulate text. From one-handed keyboards through defining every letter as a different stylus swirl to predictive text on a numeric keypad. Here’s another one Swype is a way of entering a whole word with a wiggle of a finger or stylus on a touch screen.

This one looks like it’s building some buzz – I have already seen a blog entry elsewhere where the author wishes that the iPhone would hurry up and get a Swype implementation.
