Seriously jcrow I swear you say things to make yourself sound stupid. All the Verizon posts I see your dumb name with some stupid comment that isn't even smart nor helpful to anyone. Your an annoying iphone fanboy. And you go to such an extent to make a comment, you dont even care that you sound dumb saying it. You make yourself and the iphone users look bad with your ill educated comments that only make readers give you a -1... (I have never seen a comment you made get above -2..) Your like a tuner race car driver.. You get the POS civic (IPHONE) that every other jock duche bag is driving.Now don't get me wrong I have seen some fast civics and yes the iphone in this case is a civic meaning everyone has one. Anyway your the kid who has a body kit and exhaust on it nothing else. Then someone with a Camaro comes along and stomps the crap out of your car in a race.. So you go back to the pits and someone that actually has a race ready civic comes along and tells you this is whats he thinks you need to hear EXAMPLE Luke Wilson from your comment about GSM talk on phone while i surf BS.. Then being a civic fanboy (IPHONE) you come up to the guy with the Camaro and make a comment like "My car is better cause it has vtech." After the guy with the camaro states he added a super chip to someone else with a Camaro not even in the same catagory as your car and not intended for you at all... This is basically an anlogy of what your comment seems like to this post. With a car you have endless possibilities with it, much like a phone. But when you don't know shit and make stupid comintary about a car/ network you don't even have, you just make yourself look dumb and you give Iphone fanboys a bad name. So for their sake shut the hell up..

I'm sure it was directed at me hence my name in there. And ill agree to disagree. But you are not understanding my one poine. The fact is he comes in with dumb meaningless things such as this comment where it isn't the same thing on his phone. Second go read the comment he made in the incrdible sw update and tell me he doesn't give fanboys such as yourself a bad name.

Swype is probably the best keyboard I have ever used on a phone. Some of my coworkers thought it was stupid.. "how can it be faster than a real keyboard?" they say. I was talking to them (not full speed, mind you, but decently fast) and typing what i was saying at the same time, then showed it to them... needless to say, they were all looking the keyboard at swypeinc.com. They need to just make it an app for the markets... sell it for the same price, if not more than, the price they charge for licenses to manufactuers. I, for one, would gladly pay the 9.99-14.99 price range for the keyboard as long as I could take the license with me to my next device. I have the incredible now (loving it!), but am loyal and prefer microsoft products and want an WP7 device when it launches. If i could pay 15-20 bucks for a double license... I would snatch that up immediately. I am sure that anyone that truly uses it and gets used to it will agree. For all you haters, you are also the same people that thought T9 was dumb and prefer your archaic and inefficent multi-tap method on the 12 button phones. Try it for real, like legitimately for week and you will more than likely agree with me. The keyboard is brilliant.

+1 There is a reason Apple is disappointed that it is being offered to other platforms, it is as sexy as anything on the iPhone and the incumbent will lose some of its cache with Swype going to other phones. Having said that, I am mainly focused on usability and agree with you Kilt; incredible functionalality and will be adopted as a standard that we can't imagine that could have ever done without. Not interested in hearing that there are other Swype like solutions or that Swype was 3rd to the market with this idea. Swype, Inc. owns the space and I can't wait to see it proliferate so that it can be on my next phone: whatever is the most monster WP7 device available from Sprint in a year.

I agree that Swype is the best keyboard around. Once you get used to it, it is much faster than other input methods. It is not hard to get used to, at least for me it wasn't. I also think the Android System is excellent. Very user-friendly....Give Swype a try....
