    so i went to swype website just to see like the recent updates of it. and I came across this. that swype was coming to offically most of the android phones on T mobile...
    coming to android phones like the mytouch 3G .. does that mean possibly updates could be transfered over to droid and or other phones that work with swype?
    If this is in the wrong spot..or not ment to be here on the forums.. more than welcome to delete it haha

    I hope so... I've been itching for an update to add simple features like auto-cap, and returning to the letter screen even if you close it on the number screen. I think Swype is better designed than Shapewriter. It just needs to be refined a bit.

    Sounds like T-Mob is supplying it, not Google.
    But i could be misinterpreting it.
