does this phone swype?
I have not found anything that uses the swype input that is supposed to be supported by that phone.
I registered and downloaded the Swype beta on the U8150 and tried to install but it said something about the screen size not being big enough and it wouldn't install. Shame.
Can you please tell whether it was about screen size or processor power? And can you tell whether galaxy 5 has swype?
Swype does not officially support this resolution (QVGA) in their beta - they appear to work mostly through the carriers/manufacturers to support swype.
The tmobile comet (which is the u8150) comes with swype, though, and I have read in other forums that people have swype running on this phone.
Any idea how?
The XDA forums have some info on QVGA swype.
Again, I think the swype developers are trying to keep some control over swype so it doesn't look like crap, as it integrates so closely into using the phone.
Download Swype from here, it will work on U8150.
Although I personally like ShapeWriter a much better keyboard than Swype
there is not application that supports swype in android market.
second i also can not find ShapeWriter in android market.
Can you plz help how to get anyone 1 of it?
Your response will be highly appreciated.

Yea works all good thanks
All the applications that use text input of any kind should support swype (or, rather, swype should support them). You need to set your text input method to swype before it works if you added swype to the phone after you got it. This is what I have to do with my Nexus One. On my Comet, swype is pre-installed and set as the default.
Thanks Trekker, that did the trick, although I had to freeze the stock keyboard with Titanium first.
