Swype updated, now includes Dragon Dictation

Swype Beta has been updated, and the new version brings Nuance’s popular Dragon Dictation to the already revolutionary keyboard. Dragon Dictation has been incorporated into other Android keyboards in the past, such as FlexT9. Swype’s intuitive context word choices are working to make the keyboard even more accurate, and now there are over 50 languages downloadable through the keyboard’s settings menu. You’d have to be a linguist to find a launguage they aren’t offering. But to be clear, at the moment the Dragon side only supports English, German, French, Italian and Spanish. Swype has promised more language packs in 2012, so sit tight if yours isn’t on the list just yet.

I don’t know about the readers out there, but it’s tempting to uninstall Swype and redownload it just so i don’t have to wait for the update like a normal person. Let us know if you’re looking forward to this, or how you feel about it in the comments. That is, after you watch what I’m going to boldy refer to as the best commercial of all time below.

    If you’re already using the Beta… there isn’t any need to uninstall. Just go to your Swype settings and tell it to update. Tada! Welcome to DracoSwype.

    Bonus: now the tracing line is orange…. ooooohhhhh.

    Is it true there’s no compatibility with 7″ tablets like the Acer A100?
