I also had my 'trial version' expire on my 7HT and my Nexus One, and was extremely bummed. About an hour later I received an email from Swype saying that they had opened up a new beta for Swype on the Android. Quite a coincidence, but I'm not complaining.
A few months back I had applied for the Android beta program at Swype's website, but was told that the beta was currently closed. It looks like they have reopened it, and you can apply at Swype's website if there are still spots available. Go to https://beta.swype.com
and see if they are still taking applicants, they said it would probably only be for a few days. As of this moment, the link is still accepting applicants.
Their main business model is to license the software to OEMs, they still have not decided if they will offer it as a stand-alone app. So get it while you can....
