Nokia N8 gets Swype, still no split-screen

Nokia delivered on its promise to extend Swype availability to all Symbian^3 devices. Nokia N8 just joined the C7 in the list of supported handsets and owners of the Finnish flagship can now get the app from the Ovi store.

As before, Swype comes for free, but there is still no support for portrait mode or split screen input. I really hope Nokia gets round to fixing that second part soon – after all it can’t be that hard if a Chinese third-party app already does it.

Anyway, the Nokia N8 users better head to that Ovi Store client of theirs and give Swype a try. The creators say you should be able to reach 40 words per minute with that one if you train hard enough.
