Swype is a new way to text, it is quite confusing when you first use it but once you get the basic idea you can break records i.e. the youtube video. The guy who broke the record was using the swype technology on a samsung phone but swype has recently become available on android based phone. You cannot find swype on the android market, you have to visit their beta website http://beta.swype.com/ you must then register your details with them and they send you a email, open the email on your phone and download the installer and follow the steps.
If you want to download swype you will need to allow the installation of non-market applications, found by pressing settings then aplication settings.
Get swyping annd try to break a record.
