Default iPhone 4 Owner Beats Samsung Galaxy S Owner in Texting Contest

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.tuaw.com/2010/08/25/iphone-4-sets-texting-speed-record-beats-samsung-galaxy-s/' target='_blank'>http://www.tuaw.com/2010/08/25/ipho...msung-galaxy-s/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"This just in from the "bragging about marginally useful skills" department. This week, Salford, UK-based Melissa Thompson set a "texting speed record" on her Samsung Galaxy S by typing two sentences in 25.94 seconds. The sentences in question were: "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." Note that Melissa used a Swype keyboard on the Galaxy."</em></p><p><object width="600" height="360" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/WVXyVzLjKag&amp;feature=player_embedded&amp;ap=%26fmt=18" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/WVXyVzLjKag&amp;feature=player_embedded&amp;ap=%26fmt=18" /></object></p><p>That record stood for a couple hours, and then &lt;cue the music&gt; came Brian and his iPhone 4. Who knows if it's official, and I really am not going to lose sleep wondering about it. However, congrats on the record Brian, I'm sure the skill will come in handy someday when you, um... Well, I'm sure that it will come in handy and let's leave it at that.&nbsp;</p>
