Nuance T9 Trace touchscreen typing threatens Swype

Nuance T9 TraceSwype, which recently been involved in a touchscreen text messaging world record, has a new rival. The challenger comes from speech-to-text company Nuance and is called Nuance T9 Trace.

As with Swype, Nuance T9 Trace lets touchscreen phone owners write messages by sliding their finger from one letter to another. The system integrates with Nuance XT9, which offers word prediction and error correction.

Michael Thompson, Nuance Mobile's senior vice president and general manager, said "Touchscreen devices are experiencing explosive growth, but there is high consumer demand to make text entry easier on virtual keypads. Nuance T9 Trace not only makes text input fast and easy by gliding your finger from one letter to another, but it also gives our partners an innovative way to differentiate their touchscreen phone portfolio."
