Swype will make its newest version an exclusive first for Sprint's Nexus 4G owners
A new version of the madly popular virtual keyboard tech Swype will be provided exclusively for the Nexus S 4G owners on Sprint. Personal dictionary, automatic caps on proper nouns, and selecting text with gestures are all coming first to the Google phone on Sprint.

Owners of the Nexus S 4G are also blessed with the exclusive ability to tap into Google Wallet when it launches in select cities, thanks to the NFC chip inside the handset.

Say that there is no exclusivity in the Nexus brand, which Google vowed to keep for the highest bidder among all Android manufacturers, instead of outsourcing it to Motorola, which it acquired yesterday for $12.5 billion in cold hard cash.

Have a look at the new Swype features in the video below, grab it from the link in the source, or drool for this goodness to reach your non-Nexus handset at some other point in time.
