The range of high-tech features in Samsung’s cell phone duo fills a book. One feature on the Wave and the Galaxy S that stands out for us – and promises to change the way we communicate forever – is the so-called Swype technology. As it stands now, even the fastest textmeister can’t input a message faster than a wireless operator with a rudimentary knowledge of 150-year-old Morse code. But Morse’s speed supremacy on the telegraph is being eclipsed – and it’s about time. Screens on these little Samsung gizmos have gotten so good that you can drag your finger across them to input the information, not unlike a stylus, instead of typing onto those tiny keyboards.
