PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I bought 8Pen for my Nexus One last night, an alternative, and pretty revolutionary, input method for Android. But how does it stack against normal soft keyboards?

Swype makes it pretty easy to add words to its auto correction database -- too easy for me: mine now has all of my common mispellings.

It's fairly easy to do in SlideIt as well, but in a compound-heavy language, it just isn't worth it. The main problem is that it insists on inserting a space between words, even when none is called for. There's actually a setting for this -- "automatically insert space" -- but either it works differently or not at all. Perhaps I should just file a bug report.
