How long would it take you to text this message? "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."
That's the official message used by Guinness World Records to determine the fastest texter. Thanks to a new mobile software company called Swype, Samsung's touch-screenOmnia II was able to send that text in less than 36 seconds.
Swype employee Franklin Page sent the text on Samsung's phone and now has his own World Record. It took him just 35.54 seconds to type out the convoluted message and send it.
Samsung is one of the first to use Swype, a new technology for touch-screen texting that prides itself on being as user-friendly and error-free as possible.
"One of the many benefits of the Omnia II is Swype technology, which allows users to enter text faster than ever before," said Samsung's chief marketing officer Paul Golden.
Samsung created a new TV spot that boasts about the new record, including a video of the blazingly fast text. The ad can be seen on YouTube.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
