Though it will ship with a vanilla build of Android Honeycomb, the Motorola XOOM 2 won’t be devoid of added software. Following a model set forth by Swype, SwiftKey will come pre-installed as a software keyboard option. Unlike Swype, SwiftKey is available for all to purchase in the Android Market, but the inclusion as a standard option could go a long way to drum up additional brand recognition. Though SwiftKey has not commented, it is likely we will see the keyboard come as an option on other future Android devices. SwiftKey and Swype remain two of the best alternatives to the stock Android keyboard, but we’re itching to see if Google does anything worthwhile with BlindType.
