Smile SWYPE on WM7

Sorry haven't reviewed WM7, but SWYPE is new input method, it recently won world speed record for text input, oringinally on Android. So I looked for it for my ATT FUZE (WM 6.1) -

Hey I have both a new Android (EPIC Sprint) and Win 6.1 (ATT FUZE), I was so impressed by SWYpE built-in to the EPIC, I searched the Internet for a Win version - guess what, search on SWYPE keyboard VGA CAB. (A Win mobile install file is usually a cab, orignially cab was Pocket PC). Voila, here's a link, it even works on old Win 6.1 FUZE.. be careful your Winmo phone supports VGA, there's a QVGA version for old phones. Just search for Swype keyboard QVGA CAB. Here's the VGA version:
swype cab vga - download - (1 files) So SWYPE even works on older WM phones, and it's AWESOME.... I guess you folks will tell me whether it's already built into WM7 ......

Re: SWYPE on WM7

Who knows All I know is it would have to be built into the phone or available in the Market Place it self since your not able to install .CABs or non marketplace apps for that matter . We'll just have to see, I'm sticking with Android for now though.

Re: SWYPE on WM7

It would be a shame if they didn't allow it. Swype is irreplacable in my eyes. I have a really hard time not using Swype.

Re: SWYPE on WM7

Swype will not be on WP7 for what I have seen and read. I have talked to a developer and personal friend of the Swype dev. and they are working on it, but currently MS has the SIP locked to just their's no 3rd party. I am a beta tester and have tried with emulator to change it and still no go... Not looking good in my eyes... Darn!

Re: SWYPE on WM7

Swype is crud compared to some of the other alternatives out there.
Yes, they were the first but that doesn't mean they are the only.

I still have yet to find something more simple and as quick.
