Swype sidesteps the usual tap-tap-tap method of keyboard input and instead opts for a swiping function, hence the name of the technology. You slide your finger from one letter to another without actually taking your finger off the screen until the word is done. Once done, Swype can usually tell what word you’re trying to type and throws it up onto the message for you. This method can be especially helpful if you’re a bit more clumsy at typing the actual words. If you still can’t visualize it, please watch the video at the end of the post.
The first phone to feature Swype Keyboards will be the brand new MyTouch3G, launched today on T-Mobile. This is just the beginning, though: T-Mobile plans on adding it to the HTC HD2, not to mention several other WinMo and Android devices.
