Pretty cool, yes? What you’ve got here is a version of Swype which supports many resolution sizes, this stack including such gems as qHD, HVGA, WVGA, QVGA, WQVGA, WSVGA, and FWVGA. PLUS there’s a horizontal word suggestion bar, the ability to learn as many new words as you like, and lots of hype! You’ve got the ability to craft this keyboard to your liking, with a button that activates several different configurations, another button that switches the keyboard from a two thumb to a one thumb size, and of course, again, the Swype function itself.

While if this exact edition of the app were released right this moment we’d do a bit of a double-take, we’ve got a pretty good feeling that the bugs will be squashed WAY before it’s release time. From what we’ve seen here, a promising vision of ease in keyboarding rests ahead, one that’s better than any other mobile keyboard on the market on any platform, mark my words.

This demonstration is done on the brand new Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 standard wifi edition, the kind with the lovely TFT LCD display, a fine flat white back, and thinness that’s yet unsurpassed.  It’s one spiffy keyboard and, since you’re participating in the testing run, it’s totally free. 

The popular Swype keyboard for Google Android smartphones is now available for tablets running Android 3.x Honeycomb. Or rather, a beta version of Swype 3.0 is available for tablets. Swype’s claim to fame is that the keyboard allows you to “type” without lifting your finger. I took Swype 3.0 beta for a spin on a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the keyboard looks great in both portrait and landscape modes. 

Swype 3.0 is also resizable, allowing you to shrink the keyboard to a more finger-friendly size and locate it either in the bottom center, bottom left, or bottom right poortion of the display. There’s just one major problem with Swype 3.0 beta: It’s slow. Hopefully the beta testing and bug killing process will speed things up.
