Swype & Samsung Mobile set new texting world record

Samsung just released this new tv ad for the Omnia II showing Swype intern, Franklin Page, setting a new Guinness World Recording in Texting. The ad was filmed earlier this month in New York, where Page set the Guinness World Record for the fastest text message on a touch-screen mobile phone.

“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.” in 35.54 seconds

Ironicaly the Omnia II’s resistive touchscreen is one of the worst I have ever used. If you wish to try the Swype on-screen keyboard head over here for the Windows Mobile version and here for Android.
