Hi: I LOVE SWYPE!!! I use it in Windows Mobile 6.5 on my HTC FUZE. I just installed Froyo 2.2.1 on my Fuze and installed SWYPE Beta. I get through the whole installation process and then I get an error message saying: This screen size is not supported. I'm very surprised that a 480x640 screen isn't supported in Android when it works fine in WM 6.5. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Dave

480x640 is not supported in the BETA. We are able to build customized versions for preload devices, but do not have a 480x640 reference build available. Sorry :(

That is terrible news!!! :) I have terrible RSI from using a keyboard, mouse, PDA...and swype is something that is so easy on the hands and so fast.... It is the BEST solution I've seen for getting stuff into smartphones. I cannot use a hard keyboard on a smartphone and I find onscreen keyboards almost impossible to use because of my large fingers/thumbs. Using a stylus is my only alternative but tapping is painful.

I'd been using a Palm since the mid-90s and just switched to the darkside - Windows Mobile 6.5. I really dislike Windows so decided to try Android - which seems really good so far. However, I literally think I'm going to have to go back to Windows Mobile just so I can use swype!!! (Can't afford to buy an Android phone with swype on it at present.)

I tried SlideIT for the Android - and although it's a similar in "concept" to swype, it is simply a hugely inferior product. It doesn't "guess" what you're trying to do. You have to be super precise on it.... Just doesn't cut it.

Anyhow, I guess I'm out of luck with swype when I boot to Android on my HTC Fuze so will have to stick with Windows Mobile.

Thanks again for the incredible product!!!
