BGR reader unofficially bests text messaging world record

August 25th, 2010 at 2:37 AM

A BGR reader (and fellow blogger) by the name of Brian stumbled upon our post about a U.K. woman who bested the Guinness World Record for text messaging speed. The 27-year old, named Melissa Thompson, used a Samsung Galaxy S — with the SWYPE keyboard — and managed to squeeze out: “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 under 26 seconds. Brian — age 19 — videotaped himself texting the same sentence, on an iPhone, in just under 22 seconds. Now, this obviously wasn’t an “official” or “controlled” setting, but the feat is still pretty damn impressive. Hit the jump to see Brian slay that quirky sentence. Anyone think they can beat 21.8 seconds?
