    I am using swpe on my smartphone and was used to use it with my tf201 so i am curious if this solution is as good as the android solutions.

    I wouldn't want to imply that I am lazy... but is it responsive? I tried it on android tablets before and it didn't feel quite right.

    The problem is that swype keyboards are more suited to smaller devices like smartphones and 7" tablets, would be uncomfortable on an 11"

    That is correct but I think it is nice to write an email by using swype as well.
    There is also a problem with the german swype function.

    Actually there's an option to select English keyboard after that initial language selection. Installed only the English package and like I said its not very practical on a large screen because of the swipe distance. Besides it seems to have two keyboards, a full one and the swipe enabled one. Interestingly, the swipe enabled one does not show in the metro interface, only with desktop applications. Still its a small step in the right direction.

    I quite like the built in Windows one. Very responsive and great to use. However, the only downside is that the numberpad is back to front. VERY frustrating.
