SwiftKey now out of beta.

The last time I blogged SwiftKey was in August when it was in its first beta. I was amazed by the speed at which i was typing or not typing because Swiftkey is smart enough to guess my next words and most of the time, if not always, it is spot on. SwiftKey is out of beta and can be purchased for $0.99 on Android Market. It still shows up as a beta for me.

If you haven't tried SwiftKey yet, download it from Android Market. You won't believe how fast you can type.

Read my August article about Swiftkey here.

Samsung Galaxy Tab official commercial


Nexus One gets new ROM leak, FRG33.

A new ROM update was posted yesterday on XDA forums which makes the Nexus One the most up to date device in the Android world. While the update itself does not bring much, maybe makes the device a little bit snappier. Hoever, there was a comment on the XDA forums that is noteworthy:

"I wonder what the classification in the letters mean? It seems Eclair ROMs had E's in them, Froyos had F's in them. This latest has gone from FRF to FRG? That would be a nice, EARLY leak if it were an initial Gingerbread ROM."

Wait, this is mere speculation, until an official announcement from Google.

Grab the update here.

Archos announces 3 new Android Tablets and two portable players.

Not one but 5. Impressive. Actually they are not all tablets as two of the announced devices have 2.8 and 3.2 inches of display and they are probably the first Android portable music players ever built. The players will be available sometimes this month at prices starting at $99. The other three devices are the ones that have our attention. Those are the real tablets with screen size from 4.3" to 10.1". The latter is more like a netbook, without Windows, Linux and a physical keyboard.

The Archos 43 is priced at $199. Powered by Froyo, the device sports a 1GHz processor, 8GB storage, a resistive touchscreen, WiFi, HDMI output, USB host etc.

The Archos 70 will sell for $274. Also powered by Froyo, it has more or less the same specs as the Archos 43, with the exception of a larger 7" inch screen which is also Capacitive; 16 & 250 GB and a webcam for video calls. Unfortunately, the Archos 70 is a WiFi only device.

The Archos 101 offers 8 and 16 GB of storage and a 10" capacitive. Here again, no other wireless connections besides WiFi. Price: $299.

These devices will reach online stores from mid-September to mid-October.
