i hardly ever use my slide out keyboard now.
Swype is primary and the physical keyboard is used only when I'm typing words I know it won't recognize, or if I decide it's REALLY important to type and walk without killing myself (Typo and Walk)
Yea, same folk here who say they never use phusical keyboard anymore or can live without it are the same ones who when debated iphone users that Droid has a physical keyboard.
hardly ever use the keyboard, swype is great... only problem i have is a message that sometimes appears saying the "swype app is not suited for your device you may not be able to use all features." the problem is quickly fixed by changing the input method to keyboard then back to swype but i would like to see this app work correctly someday.
Sorry but Swype is a poor man's excuse for no multitouch soft keyboard. With that said, I never use the physical keyboard anyway. But I would definitely stay away from the stock Andriod keyboard. I use HTC's IME keyboard.
I picked the droid b/c of having the physical kb. swype is great but when i sms to ppl back home i have to use kb due to using diff language not supp. by swype.
