Default Please do not post Swype APK's

As Swype is only available as a closed beta or as release within an OEM build, it should not be posted, or linked on XDA.

I'm the beta community relations rep for Swype (Brian Resnik, if you're over on the Swype forums).

First of all, yes we're watching you HAHA. I'm obligated to wag my finger at you all for distributing our software without a license. A little patience will go a long way. Trust me, the more the brass hears about people illegally copying Swype and feeling entitled to a free version (yes, we know there's no copy on the market for you to buy, but you have to respect that OEM distribution is our chosen business model), the less they want to support a beta program at all. The better we play nice with eachother, the sooner more people get into the beta!

Swype has updated their page with the new beta instructions. It appears at this point to be a limited public beta, as it will only be available for a couple of days, and requires you to enter your email address to get the download.
So threads with download links will still not be allowed.
Get the info here; http://beta.swype.com/

It's really hard to find, that you have edited your post after several hours from adding it :)
