It was only yesterday when a woman named Melissa Thompson used one of those new Samsung Galaxy S smartphones to beat the Guinness World Record for fastest texting using Swype keyboard pre-installed on the device. She wrote a textually challenging phrase:
the razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human
in just 25.94 seconds. The record was previously held by an American named Franklin Page who wrote the same exact sentence, also on a Samsung phone in 35.54 seconds in March of this year.
The record set by Miss Thompson, which was currently set for Guinness’ approval has already been beaten by Apple iPhone 4 ! A Blogger named Brian Sweet has claimed to have broken Melissa Thompson’s record. He wrote the same phrase which Melissa did on the Galaxy S, and he nailed it under a whooping 22 seconds and that too on an iPhone 4! That’s nearly about 4 seconds apart from Melissa’s record.
