    I just want swype... Maybe if palm developed native osk would be less buggy therefore worth enabling swype... I can already tell swype is the best thing since T9..

    yup. Android is java. The pdk leans more towards iphone apps.

    in order for swype to work I think the OS (webOS) needs to support on screen keyboards. And I don't think that webOS does

    that is true, but it needs to support it natively, not through preware,or sideloaded

    It actually does, have you not see the WebOS-Internals Virtual keyboard? On Screen Keyboard - WebOS Internals
    http://forums.precentral.net/webos-p...ancements.html

    This patch modifies the WebOS framework to create the availability of an onscreen keyboard using already built-in functions of the OS. It's not exactly the smoothest experience on the Pre, but with some modifications like the 800Mhz patch it actually works quite smoothly. Also certain keys don't function in certain apps like backspace doesn't seem to function inside fields in the web browser.

    I just saw a demo of swype and it was pretty amazing. Has it been run on linux, or andriod yet? if so, porting could be easy

    email swype at info@swypeinc.com to request it for webos. Its in beta for andriod currently

    it is possible to swipe out two letters at a time using the vkb; the key you tap first and the key where you release are both entered into the text.

    unfortunately, you have to be quite precise; at least on the pre plus, the vkb is just not efficient enough at displaying entered text or at enlarging the characters for these functions to be usable. you just kind of have to have a feel for where each character is and be happy to go back and edit any mistakes you may have made.

    fortunately, insofaras my own use, i've found that this sort of double-key swiping actually produces fewer typos as compared with tapping the screen.
