It took me a long time to use swype. I was used to the compact qwerty of the htc and storm. But I finally made myself use it for a week and after that week I was practically a pro. It soo much faster. You can one hand it while your walking or riding a bike, if your brave enough to try and not drop it. I couldn't use the full qwerty in portrait because I far fingered it all the time. So if you haven't tried it please do cause you will love it!
