There are a number of threads that discuss how great Swype is (it really is a great product). I found the file and loaded it on my phone and found it to be a great input method. I decided to do some more research on the product and the company and this is what I found... In essence, it won't be available as an app. It'll be pushed to the phones through the carriers but only if the carriers want it. Here's a response from one of their employees: "That's not exactly what we mean xxxxx, depending on the carrier it may vary on how Sywpe is implemented into the phones. For example, once Swype is out with it's Android platform your carrier may offer a possible upgrade for a sum of money to get Swype on your phone as well. It really all depends on how it plays out in the near future but currently Swype is only available on devices that we are releasing with it already installed." Why would they pursue this business model? This makes no sense. It appears they have a growing fan base with their product but once it's released to the Android OS, we may not be able to get it. Anyone else think this is a strange way to launch a program?
