    It is the default keyboard on the X and Fascinate. Search YouTube for videos of Swype in action. You can also switch to the Android keyboard if you prefer not to use Swype.

    In many ways it is better. ;)

    I had a Fascinate for about a week, but I exchanged it for a Droid X (still waiting for it).

    If I had a chance, I think I would have held off on my decision to exchange the Fascinate for the X, until it was closer to the 30 day mark. I mistakenly thought the Fascinate wasn't getting good reception because of the way Samsung has the signal strength reported on the Fascinate. The Fascinate in real world use though does fine and is not dropping calls. However, the X has one of, if not the best, radios for cellular reception, of any current Verizon phone. If you live or work in areas with low signal, the X may be the device for you.

    There was a recent comparison of smartphone battery life and the X came out on top. Don't know if the D2 was in that comparison though.
