    Well, this has already been asked and answered by Rick, and according to him the hardware in the slate 2 is slightly different, so the new drivers are not backward compatible. But go ahead and give it a shot. I guess Rick does not know everything.

    Swpe is fine....so is the PDF complete.
    The Ntrig will not work....it gives an error message that the hardware was not found....so I guess it is specific to the new hardware.

    Like the Swype.

    Yeah, N-trig won't install. Different hardward.

    HP Wallpaper. Yawn...
    PDF Complete looks like a alternative to Adobe Reader. Yawn...
    Camera software installed. Updated driver. Yawn...

    Not much there.

    Connection manager works as well. Not sure what it is good for. Swype is going to take some getting used to.

    I was wondering if anyone that got the Swype installer to on your HP slate can compress the Swype folder in Program Files and upload it? I wanted to try to see if I can get swype to work on my tm2, since it won't install saying it is not the installer is for another device (obviously).

    If you can help that would be great!

    The only driver compatibility question I provided feedback on was the nTrig driver, which is not backward compatible.

    Camera H/W is the same.

    Is the Swype Keyboard supposed to work with touch or just pen? The keyboard works with the stylus but not with touch. I am using W8DP.
