Swype has become one of the most popular third-party keyboards because, with some practice, it can dramatically improve your speed of text entry on a mobile device. So it’s no wonder that HTC now has a similar product, which they call Trace, that is now shipping on the HTC Sensation 4G. Trace integrates with the already-great HTC keyboard, but it doesn’t work as well as Swype, as you’ll see in this video. It seems to be less accurate, and sometimes the keyboard confuses a tap and hold of a letter (to get foreign characters) with a swiping gesture.
