As many of you know, Swype is one of the hottest keyboard options; it eliminates the pesky step of removing and reapplying your finger to type, saving you time and effort.
Well, while Android Central was perusing through the HTC Sensation, they found something oddly familiar- HTC Trace, an optional Swype-like mode of typing. This keyboard option is disabled, but can be activated through settings. According to Android Central, “one option lets you customize the thickness of the tracing line, allowing Trace to take into account the stubbiness of your fingers when working out what you’re typing.”
The official release of HTC Trace won’t of course come until the actual release of the HTC Sensation. Swype hasn’t said anything over the similarities, but once people get their fingers on the Sensation and start sliding ‘em all around, they just might.
