Treo 650 Sets Speed-Typing Guinness World Record

By: Christopher Meinck

Former World Text Champion Arttu Harkki used a Treo 650 smartphone to type the fastest-ever email on the move using a QWERTY keyboard using a single thumb. Before the record attempt could start, Hein Le Roux, official adjudicator from Guinness World Records explained the rules, "There are a lot of phones that incorporate QWERTY keyboards, and we need to make sure that the record is standard across all models. For this reason, we asked Arttu Harkki to type using just the thumb of one hand." After several attempts, Le Roux announced that Harkki had managed to complete the message in just 2 minutes 22.9 seconds. According to our friends at PalmAddict, Orange is set to launch the palmOne Treo 650 in the UK tomorrow. This event was to increase awareness for the launch.Digital Lifestyles has photos of the event.
