    So I'm trying to figure out if there's a way to utilize all 3?

    I prefer to use Swype in portrait and the Android keyboard in landscape (and obviously the hardware keyboard with the slider open)

    Anyway to do this?

    You can't set one to automatically come up in portrait and the other to come up in landscape, but when in a typing field you can long press the text box and tap input method and switch between Android and Swype very easily. Just make sure that both the Android and Swype keyboards are checked in Settings/Language & Keyboard

    As the previous poster noted, you can choose the input method on the virtual keyboard on a case by case basis. As for the hardware keyboard, I suspect you already realize that if you slide open your phone the hardware keyboard takes over automatically.
