Samsung And Swype Set Record For Fastest Text Message

It looks like Samsung’s move to invest in Swype has paid some dividends, as a recent video has surfaced showing a user setting a new Guinness World Record for the fastest text message on a touchscreen phone using Swype on the Windows Mobile 6.5 powered Samsung Omnia II. In case you’re unfamiliar with it, Swype allows you to swipe your finger over the letters that you need to type without having to let go, instead of having to type (or poke) at the screen, hitting one letter at a time. This apparently allows users to churn out words a lot faster. Do you think Swype is the way to go, or do you plan on training yourself using your iPhone’s virtual keyboard?
