News for myTouch 1.2 users, check the area inside the square in the middle of the screen shot. It states that the myTouch 1.2, which is the same as the myTouch 3G with 3.5mm Jack, will have the new Swype text input method. This will be the first touchscreen T-Mobile device ever to feature an alternative text input method.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Swype, it’s a text input method where you simply swipe your finger across the letters on the keyboard to spell out your text. Here is a brief video demo of Swype.
Anyone use the Swype keyboard before? I have tried it once before and found it a little difficult but I’m sure with practice it gets easier. Any of you a fan?
