    I just ordered my Asus and didn't know if Swype is there by default or if it is even available. Does anyone know?

    Thanks

    Yes it is. Works great although the keyboard in landscape is big!

    For me, in Polaris Office, document, it works in landscape. But, not in a browser URL.

    Maybe some apps have it enabled, and others do not? I am confused.

    Technically its not swype (as in the name brand). The stock Asus keyboard has the ability to trace words, but its slower, and IMO not as good in terms of speed, prediction and overall experience.

    I find even a 7 incher too much realestate to trace words a la swype. Swype will come stock on the new Sammy tabs as Samsung has an OEM deal with swype

    I am using thumb keyboard exclusively now.

    If you sign up for the Swype Beta, you should be able to download on any device.

    I have a swype beta account and have been using it on my rooted Samsung Fascinated, but it will not load on my Transformer.

    The beta allows for one activation per account per device. Ihavent tried but I would be surprised if it didn't work. Did you deactivate your other device before installing swype on your TF?

    Swype 3.0 gets Honeycomb support, intense promo video (video) -- Engadget

    I just installed the beta on my transformer. It's working great. I previously used it on an Evo, and I'm finding that it works very well on a tablet too.

    Frustrating, I kept getting "Sorry you're not on an Android Phone". It must have been a setting in the default browser and in Dolphin, because it's downloading in Firefox.

    It took me about 10 tries to install, including one uninstall. But, swype beta works now.

    I like it because it has a small keyboard button, shrinking the keyboard so you can swype.
    It is way faster than the Asus swype and better word recognition, more features.
    It goes off when docking, and back on when undocking.

    Overall, PITA to install, but great to use. It is beta at the moment.

    Good luck.

    I got that to until i went into settings, advanced, user agent string, then select tablet.

    I Just installed swype 3.0 beta on my transformer. Install was smooth, and the keyboard is the best one I have used yet- very accurate. I like that you can change the size of the keyboard.
    However, Swype may not be for everybody. It takes some getting used to. I have it on my evo and love it.

    It is working great over here. Installed it as soon as I go the transformer.

    definitely a step up from the default keyboard. and don't forget, the little "key" to the right lets you shrink or expand the keyboard - i actually like it shrunk, makes it much easier to type and swype in a small area rather than the full large keyboard.

    Yeah I love Swype on the phone but the screen size of a tablet kept me away from Swype, that is until
    they made one for HC and re-sizable keyboard.
    Loving Swype on the TF.
