TouchType has now transferred its touchscreen typing smarts from smartphones to the big screen, bigger than a smartphone anyway. The company has launched a new tablet version of its SwiftKey typing app to coincide with the release of Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) and the launch of the Xoom tablet from Motorola. The app is claimed to make touchscreen typing more intuitive thanks to an improved version of the Fluency predictive text engine and easier thanks to optimized keyboard layouts and multi-language support.
The 3D bandwagon continues to gain momentum, if not followers, with the news LG plans to unveil the world’s first 3D smartphone at Mobile World Congress 2011 later this month in Barcelona. The LG Optimus 3D will pack a glasses-free LCD panel as well as a dual-lens camera for capturing 3D images and vides to help address the current lack of 3D content. It will also feature 3D-capable HDMI 1.4 and DLNA connectivity options for sharing 3D content.
