is swype included in the touch pro?
i thought i saw the phonedog demoing swype in that particular device, but then again, i watch so many videos and demos that i might be wrong.
i'll be picking up a at&t subsidized touch pro(fuze) in the coming month and looking forward to swyping away!
great show guys!

Yes I did – and no probably not 🙂

It's not just MIR – it appears to be all of our 'cloud host' Mosso. One of the draw-backs of shared services… Tumblr suffers the same fate.

This episode does not appear to have made it's way out on iTunes (my preferred way of consumption).

Is it going to make it in the near future?

I had the pleasure of telling a Samsung employee today that I had seen Swype demoed back in 2008 on this site. He told me it was only for Samsung, so within 30 minutes I had installed it on my HTC Desire 🙂

Responsive and works quite nicely.
