    I heard the Droid 2 comes with pre-installed with Swype. Is this true?

    Swipe is awsome. Once I got used to it there was no going back to a physical keyboard. Get yourself a DX and use swipe, it has all the same specs internally as the D2, but it does HD video and has HDMI out.

    i use swype much more than the slide out keyboard. its much faster after a day or so of practice, and the droid 2 even comes with a swype tutorial to explain all its tricks!

    swype is a keyboard that you drag your finger across to make a word instead of typing each letter

    Wow, that is going to take some getting used to. One problem I had was not being able to spell worth a crap.

    No, swype uses your virtual keyboard.

    I personally found Swype to be one of the greatest features of my phone because there are times I'm texting multiple people and emailing and being able to move my finger and not have to type every letter speeds things up. No one I'm talking to feels like I'm taking forever to reply to them because Swype makes things so much faster for me.
