I was wondering if Swype or something similar is possible on webos? A friend of mine has a samsung moment with the swype on her phone and it works pretty good. Any developers out there willing to take the challenge, if its possible?

that sounds awesome. I really hope something like this is possible, but I seriously doubt it. In my own experience, the virtual keyboard is laggy and glitchy enough without having to do anything more than recognize which letters you are typing.

Wrong, it's for anything written in C/C++, which means nearly all iPhone apps, so not just games.
