Nuance may be buying Swype for $100 million w/ competition from Apple’s Siri #teechy

8 Oct

Nuance reportedly buying Swype for $100 million — Engadget.

Swype’s finger gliding input method with QuickType has been very popular on Android handsets, allowing quick and efficient typing unlike the iPhone. But is voice input the new thing? Apple and Nuance seem to think so.

But $100 million for only being around for a few years? Not bad for the Seattle-based startup, Nuance.
