If you’re not the type of person who likes to poke at your phone’s touchscreen to type a message, Swype is probably something that will interest you. Instead of having to press each letter, you can just press (and hold your finger on) a letter, and drag it to the next letters that you need, without having to let your finger leave the display. It’s quite interesting, once you get the hang of it, really.
Some of you might have tested out Swype on your Android-powered phone when the beta version of it was leaked a while back, but if you didn’t then, you’re currently able head over to the Swype Beta site and register to become a tester. The beta is currently open to a limited number of people, and it’s available in English and Spanish, so if you want to give it a test drive, you’d better register quickly. It’s currently a limited version, compared to what you’d get if you get Swype bundled with your phone. Supported resolutions currently include HVGA and WVGA resolutions only. Video after the jump.
