Paul O'Brien has whipped up a custom kernel for some of our international Samsung Galaxy Nexus owners that will now support keyboard, USB drive, and mouse bluetooth peripheral devices. The kernel is modded, but still very much based on the stock kernel source with a few of the dev's "touches" here and there.
Doubletime and a few other phones they have the entire range covered. Today we'll be showing you the mid to higher end of that spectrum with the Captivate Glide and its slide-out QWERTY keyboard and dual-core processor. It might not be the biggest or the best but it will put up a good fight, that is for sure.
SwiftKey X is a popular alternative to the standard Android keyboard, and the developers are in the habit of continually improving it. In addition to a Halloween pumpkin theme last month, they're trying out multi-touch features in a new alpha release. The download has been spread around by the developers, but only VIP members (i.e. those who have paid for SwiftKey X) can access it.
Swype have been on a roll as of late and just last month announced the new Swype v3.26 BETA. Along with the update came tons of changes and even a new design layout for the keyboard. One of the biggest though, was automatic updates right to the device instead of all the fuss that we've had to deal with in the past with Swype. Today Swype has started the first OTA update for their BETA and users should see it soon.
SwiftKey X has received an update today just in time for Halloween. Not only is SwiftKey X very popular and an editors choice on the Android Market, now it can be your favorite too because they've added a Halloween theme with pumpkin orange to go right along with the Holiday.
Swype, Swiftkey, 8pen, and my personal favorite, Thumb Keyboard, among many, many others. I came across one today that offers a relatively novel feature: it automatically hooks in to Google Translate to allow you to input text in any supported language. TypeSmart Keyboard is still in beta, and free for the moment. If you have to translate between multiple languages often, it's definitely worth a look.
updated to 3.25 back in August and we had plenty of information then, and we have even more this time. The main thing with the latest update is automatic updates, no longer do we need to deal with the Swype installer app. More update details and video are after the break.
Samsung Stratosphere QWERTY keyboard slider rocking 4G LTE and a great mid-range price is available starting today, October 13th, at Verizon. It had its fair share of leaks and now can finally be yours if you fancy a full side-out keyboard.
SwiftKey X by Touchtype has been receiving a lot of attention in the world of Android, and with good reason. It is one of the best alternative keyboards available and has recently been graced with some updates making it even better. Today SwiftKey has just announced the new update version 2.1 for their popular keyboard after receiving some changes asked for by their community and from the private BETA. We've been able to look it over and I truly love SwiftKey X, especially on my tablet. More details and pics below.
Samsung Stratosphere. Apparently Wirefly accidentally posted a few pictures of the upcoming slider for Verizon on their Pantech Breakout page. This isn't the first time we've seen the Stratosphere either, but new pictures are a good sign it should be coming to market soon.
