FlexT9 Virtual Keyboard for Android Launches

The FlexT9 is a virtual keyboard for Android smartphones. It has four ways to input data in to the phone which includes voice input powered by Dragon.

The four input methods include Speak: which allows you to say something along the lines of “text fred: whatever you want to say”. This function is said to be reliable.

The next input is Trace: that appears to be very similar to how Swype works in that you trace your finger over the keys. Next it’s the Write method that allows you to scribble letters and numbers down that are recognised and converted to text. Finally, you have the regular tap type keyboard where you can enter text the usual way.

The app costs $5 and is available for various devices. The requirements are that it runs Android 2.1, 2.2 or 2.3 which from what TechChee report, includes the following:

Verizon Motorola Droid X (US only), Moto Droid/Droid 2 & Fascinate; T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide, myTouch 4G, Nexus One, Nexus S & Vibrant; AT&T Captivate & Nexus One; Sprint Epic, Evo & Galaxy Tab; (Europe): Motorola Milestone; HTC Desire, Desire HD and Desire Z; Samsung Galaxy Si9000 and Galaxy Tab.

The video below gives a demonstration of each of the input types:
