    Re: Gesture Typing causing inconvenience on Android powered Nexus handset

    The main menu of the Android powered Nexus handset has to be entered at first. You can then opt for the ‘Language & input’ section. As the next step, the ‘Keyboard& input methods’ must be hit selected. The ‘Android keyboard’ label is supposed to be opted out then. After that the settings section for the same must be visited. The ‘Gesture typing’ label ought to be traced out then. You can check the option to turn it toOFF position. Finally the changes made have to be saved.
