Mellisa Thompson, of Salford, England, has broken the Guinness World Record for the fastest texter, using Swype on a Samsung Galaxy S with a time of 25.94 seconds. The previous record of 35.54 seconds, held by Franklin Page of the U.S. was also set using a Samsung phone (the Omnia II) using Swype. We're glad to see this one come to Android :)
For all the aspiring record breakers out there, the "official" text used is:
"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."
Punctuation and capitalization counts, so none of that ez txt spk. Unfortunately, Swype is still in closed beta, so we can't help you there. If you have what it takes, fire up the camera and send in a video -- we'll see that it gets to the right place if you can beat the record! [Google News]
