Google gobbles up BlindType

Posted on Tuesday, October 05 2010 @ 00:35:27 CEST by

eWeek writes Google acquired BlindType, a piece of software that makes it easier to input text:
Google bought BlindType to improve text input for Google Android smartphones and tablets and keep it away from Apple's iPhone and iPad. Google Oct. 1 purchased BlindType, whose software may be used on Apple's iPhone, iPad and Google Android devices to make typing easier, for an undisclosed sum.

BlindType lets users type pretty much anywhere on the device's touchscreen, recognizes users' gestures and translates them into text. The idea is that users needn't watch their keyboard the whole time.

"Although this would typically lead to countless spelling mistakes that would be impossible to autocorrect, BlindType predicts what the user intended to write with a success rate not previously seen on any other system," BlindType explained on its Web site.
