23:01 Nokia Plays Catch-Up With Streaming TV for Lumia in FinlandAdding more appeal to the Nokia Lumia brand, the Finnish handset giant has confirmed rumors that the devices will soon be able to stream TV shows from what broadcasters call "catch-up services." The service will initially debut in Finland.
The service will be a "signature hub" on the Windows Phone 7 devices, meaning that users can touch a tile on the home screen to access the service and be directed to programming offered by major broadcasters online after they have aired on TV, without any registration or log-in.
"With Nokia TV we are bringing existing services in Finland together in a convenient way," said Mika Suomela, head of TV and video at Nokia, on the company's Conversations promotional blog. "We're making it easier for people to find and watch TV, while supporting broadcasters' existing Internet TV business models."
"Finland is the ideal country in which to introduce this service due to its advanced mobile user base and great existing broadcaster catch-up TV services."
Nokia did not say whether the service will be offered for users in other countries, and our e-mail seeking comment did not generate a response in time for publication.
SlashGear reported that the service may soon be available in the U.K. or other countries that offer catch-up services, but a U.S. debut is uncertain.
Gartner analyst Ken Dulaney told us that Nokia TV could add value to the Lumia brand, but it was less important than increasing the number of available applications in Microsoft's Marketplace for Windows Phone. He said the catch-up hub is actually catching up to existing services.
"There are so many other streaming sites including Netflix and Amazon and you can get streaming with your cable service now," Dulaney said, referring to services like Cablevision's Optimum and Time Warner. "And of course there is always Slingbox. [This is] just...

22:24 Android User Demand For SwiftKey 3 Beta Crashes ServersWhen TouchType rolled out a new beta version of its SwiftKey virtual keyboard on Wednesday, the company's Web site was immediately overwhelmed with thousands of requests from Android smartphone and tablet users eager to get their hands on the latest software release.
"So many people want to try SwiftKey 3 Beta that despite tripling our server capacity, it's struggling to cope," the U.K.-based company said in a SwiftKey Twitter post. "Please keep trying!"
Perhaps the most significant user benefit under SwiftKey 3's hood is the way the upgraded software effortlessly tackles one of the hardest problems that exists in the mobile text entry field today. According to TouchType Chief Marketing Officer Joe Braidwood, the beta app's upgraded methodology can determine when a user has missed spaces and automatically render corrections.
"With our new Smart Space technology, SwiftKey 3 figures out when you've missed spaces -- or maybe hit a letter instead -- across long strings of sloppy text," Braidwood said in a blog post Wednesday. "It makes typing much, much easier [and] you can even type a whole sentence out without hitting [the] space [bar] once."
Other Beta Features
TouchType's new SwiftKey 3 beta release for Android smartphones and tablets -- including devices running Google's new Ice Cream Sandwich platform, also known as Android 4.0 -- sports a larger space bar as well as a typing user interface makeover. Also on tap is an online service for automatically backing up the phrases learned on each and every Android mobile device running the new beta app.
The U.K.-based start-up also has added seven languages to the 35 already supported in the company's current commercial release. Additionally, SwiftKey 3 beta users no longer need to long-press the period to get to the question mark or exclamation point characters.
"Just quickly slide left" on the period, the company...
