The Swype keyboard has been incredibly popular, despite not being openly (or legally, for that matter) available for download for Android. But Swype just opened up a beta program for our beloved platform. Here's what you need to know:

  • Go here to register for the beta program.
  • The beta test is open to a limited number of people. (So sign up now.)
  • English and Spanish for now.
  • This version is limited, compared to what you get when Swype is built in to a phone.
  • HVGA and WGVA resolutions only.
  • Support is done via forums.
  • And if you already have Swype (like on a new T-Mobile Android Phone), don't download this one. It work work.

There you go, folks. Give her a go. [Swype]
