Nuance acquires Swype for more than $100 million

Nuance has officially followed through with their acquisition of Swype, thereby bolstering its current ownership of the T9 keyboard system. Following the purchase, Nuance has situated itself in a position of power over a sea of phones as far as the eye can see. In other words, Nuance has long been the default provider for most basic phones and now we will likely see them as as the premier provider of Android default keyboards. The Swype Beta project has been great, but as such has been limited in reach. Nuance should be able to effectively bring Swype to the masses.
