SwiftKey's fast-typing predictive keyboard coming to the Nokia X

SwiftKey is the best keyboard replacement on Android, hands down, and now Nokia fans can get a proper taste.

It's true, Nokia's getting in on the Android game, and it's bringing the best keyboard on the Android platform along for the ride.

SwiftKey, hot on the heels of releasing SwiftKey Note for iOS users, has announced that its predictive keyboard is available for the Nokia X -- and whatever other Android-powered phones may use the Nokia Store in the future. The app will be free (the current Android version costs $3.99 in the US), and will include support for SwiftKey Cloud, which backs up your typing history while also looking for popular phrases on social networks.

We'll need a little more time to see how Nokia's stock keyboard compares but there's a good chance that this will be an upgrade worth making -- especially since it won't cost anything.
