Swype keyboard, which is currently officially available only on Windows Mobile based Samsung Omnia II has been leaked for Android devices. This leaked preview version of Skype is optimized for high resolution Android devices such as the Motorola Droid and HTC Droid Eris. This preview version of Swype for Android devices is said to be incompatible with the older WVGA screens.
Swype is a new, faster and easier way for text entry on your smartphone. With Swype, you can type at a rate of 50 words per minute with one single continuous finger motion without having to lift the finger from your screen. Folks over at XDA have extracted the Swype keyboard which is installed by default on Samsung Omnia II on Verizon. You can now use it with any Windows Mobile based WVGA device, including the HTC HD2.
Last month, we saw the launch of large variety of GSM-based Windows phones like HTC HD2, running Windows Mobile 6.5. However, we didn't see many Windows phones coming in for CDMA users on carriers like Verizon as some of the Android phones like Motorola Droid. And now after much delay, CDMA version of Samsung Omnia II has finally landed today on Verizon Wireless. The Omnia II has a 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED display which has now pretty much become a standard for Samsung's high-end smartphones.
