Swype has been given the what-for on Windows Mobile for a while now, and it's gained a bit of a following, coming standard on the Samsung Omnia II. For the uninitiated, it's an on-screen keyboard on which you drag your finger across the screen instead of picking it up every time you type a letter.

MobileCrunch has gotten an early look at Swype on the Verizon Droid Eris, and it looks exactly the same as what I've used on Windows Mobile (as it should). If you've never used Swype, it's a very odd feeling. I'm not sold on it, but to each his own. (And it should be noted that you can still use it as a normal keyboard.)

What do you guys think? Anybody else used Swype?
