Swype just the beginning.

We were overly excited to try Swype when it was first released, but now it seems its one of many line based on-screen keyboards to come. Just last month SlideIT came into existence, with many excited, we thought it would be the best and the last. It seems pocketnow has done a video to prove us wrong.

The video demos the new ShapeWriter in action on what seems like an HD2. The video shows truly how fast an on-screen keyboard can be. Unlike Swype, this new keyboard cost a little cash, and a little being $19. That price tag is a deal breaker for me, that is a little too much for a keyboard I will hardly ever use. This is certainly a good concept, and it seems fast, but with that price, I am sure you’re better off with Swype.
