    I was surprised that the Samsung 10.1 didn't have a Swype on the keyboard. Is there a Swype for the Samsung? I searched but couldn't find anything like I have on the Bionic. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Register for and download the Swype beta! I like it better than stock Swype!

    Ugh, I was hoping the beta would work on tablets... I'm surprised it doesn't... Try some of the Swype competitors. The only one I can think of off hand is Swiftkey but I know there are several more...

    Thanks!

    I just spent over an hour online chatting with Samsung about Swype. Seems they have upgraded to Swype (plus other enhancements) for their WiFi version only and not the Verizon version which really stinks.

    Oh good, glad you figured that out, I hope they upgrade the 4g version soon! :)

    I switched to touchpal on my DX, which has swipe. They are working on the tablet version as well. It looks pretty good and I am patiently waiting for this.

    When I had a chance to turn in my Xoom for the Samsung 10.1 tab .. I didn't even blink .. one thing I was looking forward to is showing off y swype skills on the big screen ...in denial that it wasn't an installed option, I looked all over the place.. still can't believe it wasn't a standard feature..

    Would it be possible to have someone pull the apk from their wifi only version and then give it to you, and then you sideload it?

    If you're tablets haven't been updated with swype yet, here is the apk from my wifi only tab.

    Sorry, I have not been here for a while. Have you tried clearing the cache and data?
