To Our Hinglish-speaking Friends,

Greetings from Seattle! Some members of the Swype team recently made their way to India for a whirlwind tour of this great country. You can read a bit more about their success here (http://www.themobileindian.com/news/7703_Low-cost-Android-handsets-may-come-with-Swype). Aside from meeting with end users, media personnel, and partners, our team spread the word of Hinglish input which is now available in the Swype Beta version! If you are a Swype Beta user and want to see Hinglish in action, just follow the steps below:
