Swype sets sights on growth, iPhone

Swype, the start-up that is gaining a lot of buzz for its touchscreen typing technology, expects to be on 50 devices before the end of 2010, according to CEO Mike McSherry. The company (a 2010 Fierce 15 winner) recently got another boost when Verizon Wireless  (NYSE:VZ) unveiled its newest flagship Android smartphone, the Motorola (NYSE:MOT) Droid X, which sports Swype's technology. The company's technology eschews tapping keys, and instead allows users to simply drag their finger from key to key to type. McSherry told Reuters that the company would like to get on Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone eventually, but that it has not yet shown its software to the iPhone vendor. Article
