Guinness World Records has long had an entry for the world’s fastest texter, a record judged by the time in which someone can put in a particular phrase or sentence. Mellisa Thompson – a Galaxy S user from Salford, England – used her phone and the preinstalled Swype keyboard to break the record previously held by Franklin Page from the United States – who also used Swype (though on a non-Android Samsung handset) by ~10 seconds.

Melissa did it in 25.94 seconds opposed to Franklin Page’s 35.54. This is probably due to it being easier to Swype on the Galaxy S – which uses a capacitive touchscreen – opposed to the Omnia II which uses a resistive touchscreen. Whether or not you think the record is pointless or holds no prestige, it’s still pretty impressive. Anyone breaking out their phone to try out the phrase (quoted below) for themselves?

“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.”
