Attempts to artificially limit customers in the digital age, especially when smartphones, OS’s, and exclusive programs are involved only pushes hackers and developers harder in opening up the platform or program at hand. For today’s “That didn’t last long moment”, we’re looking at the new Samsung Omnia II and it’s exclusive “Swipe” keyboard. This new keyboard is unique because it allows you to “swipe” across the board to spell out words instead of having to actually life, press, lift, press. Once you get the hang of it, swipe input can actually be as fast or faster than traditional typing. The only problem with Swipe however is that it is an Omnia II exclusive for now. I don’t know about you, but I certainly wouldn’t switch to the Omnia II just for Swipe. Hell, it would take a lot more to get me to do that.

Outsiders looking for some Swipe goodness don’t have far to look. If you’re an owner of a Touch Pro 2, Diamond 2 (Pure) or other VGA+ device, you’re in luck. Swipe theoretically supports your phone. Each phone is different however and therefore issues and hiccups do arise. Go ahead, grab the those .cab files and do some file switcheroo’s on your WinMo smartphone of choice and in no time flat you’ll be a swipin’ fool.

Now if only Swipe would make it’s way to other platforms…

Just in case you forgot how Swipe looked/worked:
