New Text (SMS) World Record? iPhone 4…

The current world record holder, Melissa Thompson from United Kingdom, wrote the paragraph (below) in 25.94 seconds on a Samsung Galaxy S using the Swype input method:

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.

Blogger Brian Sweet has published a video showing him writing that paragraph in less than 22 seconds on iPhone 4, 15% faster than Melissa on Galaxy S.

While it’s certainly impressive to watch how fast he actually types on the iPhone 4, one has to remember that it’s possible he practiced for a very long time on that very paragraph, since it’s the same one being used to measure world records in text messaging all the time. Still, watch the video, he’s really fast!
