If you haven’t seen the technology, you owe it to yourself to at least see the Swype website and watch some of the videos. I believe this puts touch screen phones on an equal footing with qwerty phones as far as speed of text entry. I also see tablet PCs suddenly take a very serious place at the table of consideration. The main reason to have a keyboard is speed and accuracy. Swype, at least on a reasonably sized phone, allow you enter information as fast and as accurately as any other input method. Really.
