Swype Keyboard

Swype Keyboard

An alternative to the Android virtual keyboard, the Swype virtual keyboard allows you to input text by swiping the finger with one continuous finger or stylus motion across the screen keyboard. Based on testing, speed and accuracy are equal to or better than the traditional keyboard-tapping method. You can activate the Swype keyboard by pressing and holding in a text field, wait for popup to appear, click Input Method, and then select Swype.

In the image to the right, the word "mind" was generated from tracing the path shown above in a fraction of a second, by roughly aiming to pass through the letters of the word. A key advantage to Swype is that there is no need to be very accurate, enabling very rapid text entry.

I got my Droid x2 on May 20th. I came from a Droid X, and previously a Droid 1. Even though this phone is not running Gingerbread yet, the Menus, and interface are much improved over the original Droid X. The Screen can be described as richer. It has more contrast, and the colors are better. The Camera is Much faster, and I feel takes much nicer pictures than the X. One major advantage for me is that it fits in my Car Dock, and my cases. How many times have you changed phones only to have to buy all new accessories. If you are just moving to a Droid phone, this is the fastest phone on the market now. I see people crying that it is not 4g.. I have never felt there was anything I could not download fast enough. My 3G Streams video,loads games, you name it. If I have something big to download, the phone is great on WiFi.. and the DX2 is even faster there. The Battery seems to be about the same even with the much faster Processor.
Like the Ad says the Droid does.. and the Droid X2 does twice as fast.

I'm coming from an iPhone 3G, for what that is worth to you. The first thing that I notice operating the phone is the unfathomable ease with which it was set up. I have everything done through Google, my contacts, calendars, mail, everything. After telling the phone my email and password, everything was instantly integrated. As I use my phone on a professional basis, I have many contacts. I remember in the past taking forever to finally getting everything into new phones, this took seconds. It is a feature I'm not soon to forget.

Briefly, very nice 4.3 inch screen. Impressive camera, although the coloring in videos can be a bit shaky, shifting in hues. It is fast, due to it's dual core processor, which can only get better when Gingerbread is unleashed which is more geared towards using the additional processing power. It has 8GB internal memory, and a very easily accessible micro SD. It comes with an 8GB card, but I have 10GB of music, so I purchased a 16GB. Coming from iTunes, I simply highlighted my playlist and dragged it into the folder. iTunes did not like doing large amounts of songs, so I had to break it up into blocks of a few hundred songs at a time. Then I used an app simply called "Cover Art downloader", which was free, and it automatically downloaded all the cover art. So setting up my phone was nice and easy.

As far as customizing goes, widgets are incredible. Once I turn on my phone, I have numerous pieces of data right on the home screen. I get my schedule, the weather, and if you want social networking up dates streaming here too, and news feeds. I don't have to go into any piece of software, they are all just here. this is an awesome feature of Android, I love it.

If you are torn between wanting a new phone that is 4G compatible and one that is a 3G only phone, don't jump at the latest and greatest (4G)...yet. I am of the opinion that 4G will one day be a great data highway, but for now it is not available in enough areas to impress me to want to look at 4G phones. Many 4G phone owners have complained about how the search for available 4G networks has become a great drain on battery life. This is Motorola's first dual-processor phone, and I can tell you it is responsive enough to put a smile on your face.

I've owned and used a lot of Motorola phones and have found them all to be credible performers, but none have been as impressive as the new Droid X2. I recently upgraded from the original Droid with the slide-out keyboard and am a former BlackBerry user. The Droid was a solid and reliable phone, but can't even come close to the performance of the X2. When it came time for me to upgrade to a new phone I considered the Samsung Charge, the HTC Incredible 2 and the Droid X2. All three are great phones, but for me, the overall performance and features of the X2 were enough to make me select it as the winner. I don't need a phone with dual-facing cameras (like the Incredible 2) and I am not concerned with 4G connectivity that the Charge offers.

Physically, it's a large phone, but not what I consider bulky. It's actually thinner and lighter than my old Droid. What you get with a phone of this size is a lot of screen area and on this phone the display is sharper and brighter than anything I had seen previously. I went to a party last night and kept it in the front pocket of a pair of dress pants and it didn't feel uncomfortable or distracting. Without a protective cover it is a surprisingly light phone with a low profile.

I recently got a droid X1 after having it a week I found out the X2 was coming out, so i quickly returned my X and a few days later got the droid X2. Having both phones, there is not a difference hardly in the looks, your accesories from X and any cases will fit the X2. The main difference in appearance is the X2 on back and they removed the red camera button(now you only can use the touch screen, no biggie.). The changes were mainly in the power and picture. X2 is now running a dual core processor the first for verizon phones instead of single core. The scrren is a qhd with higher resolution for better pics and videos. My favorite is the mirror mode, so while your on amazon you might as well buy the motorola hdmi cord and playback 1080p videos on your flat screen or play games like your phone is the controller. SWEET! All in all, if you own the droid X already you may not justify the upgrade, however if you loved your X1, you will also love the droid x2. If you are like me and like to protect your phone I might add that the X2 did away with the car dock manual option, so if you use a case it will probally not fit in the motorola car dock unless you remove it each time to put the phone in car dock mode, contacted motorola about this and they said only way is dont use a case so it fits in dock to trigger mode, other than that the phone is excellent for surfing and pic clarity. NO front facing camera or 4G, but really who wants the front camera, so everyone wont bother me with skyping, and until 2012 or 2013 the 4g wont be everywhere unless you are in a big city. Hope this helps and happy phone hunting!
