    I recently tried Android for a couple weeks. The main thing I liked about it was an add-on called Swype. I wish Microsoft would integrate Swype as an option in WP.

    they have a similar APP ont he market place you can get ( its not as good as swipe doh ) and u need to copy past your texte from the app , sorta dumb.

    i think mango might allow for changing the ACTUAL keybored , im sure its gona be comming soon :) but for the time being its a no go.

    But is Swipe better than the default WP7 keyboard? I mean, I've seen multiple times demo videos. Probably, I need to experience it for myself I guess.

    >"If you don't like Englilsh, get the **** out of America and "don't let the door hit you.""

    You sound like an ignorant *****. THis is the internet and not everyone's in or from America. And English comes from England, fyi.

    On the Swype point though, I'm in total agreement. Keyboard customisation is definitely one of the features driving android forward.

    Well, I guess they have to have something other than crappy OS. :-)

    I had Swipe on my old Omnia II (windows mobile) and it was great. It's really fast and it's not hard to pick up. It would be great to have that option WP.

    Swype is the only thing I miss. If we could get swype on WP it would be pretty close to perfect...

    I would never switch back for it, but it is amazing....

    Same here. My short time with Android, Swype was easily my favorite feature. Would love to see it on Windows Phone
