SwiftKey to provide SDK to OEMs
SwiftKey's latest keyboard app, SwiftKey X, has been downloaded more than 5 million times by Android users and is one of the most innovative keyboards available.  In a move to rival Swipe, the company announced today that is licensing their technology to OEM's.  RIM is using SwiftKey's smart language technology in the BlackBerry PlayBook's OS 2.0 update, and you can expect to start seeing it on all the major players in the future.  The SwiftKey SDK will support Android, C++, iOS, JVM (Java, Scala), Linux, Mac OS X, .NET (C#, VB), QNX/BlackBerry 10, WebOS and Windows.  With virtually all platforms accounted for you can expect to see much smarter typing on your next device!

I love SwiftKey X. I used Swype at first, then got used to Better Keyboard and enjoyed that. Downloaded Swiftkey X as free app of the day from Amazon and have never looked back, only keyboard I am willing to use on my phone. (thumb keyboard for my tablet!)

I'm a SwiftKey fan also, combined with Dolphin Browser, I can fly nearly as fast as a desktop using my RAZR. I have most of the Office apps available, and SwiftKey is the fastest...
