Swype for Google Android gets an update with Dragon Dictation!

Swype has got a major update for Google Android devices. The company was recently acquired by Nuance which means that we now have Dragon Dictation integrated in this keyboard app.

The company said:

Dragon Dictation is now integrated directly into the Swype keyboard! Just press the Dragon Flame key and speak. This version of Swype + Dragon Dictation currently supports English, French, Italian, German and Spanish, but will be expanded to support additional languages in 2012.
