I'm using Swype on two handsets, 3.2" and 4.2". There I hold the smartphone with one hand and swype with the second (right). We own also two tablets, Asus Transformer (10.2") and Ainol Novo 7". On it, espacially in landscape mode I think the keyboard is good for typing but to big for swyping. I think, this will be not a big problem for you to compact the keyboard and position this in a configurable edge. The free room you can use for showing the proposed words and there will be one line more space on the tablet (and because the keyboard also can be smaller in the height, much more space).
