The Guinness World record for the fastest typing speed on an iPad has been broken. The record broken by the 15 year old son of the Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, is the new world record holder for typing the entire English alphabet (A-Z) on the iPad keyboard in 5.26 seconds. The previous record was 6.31 seconds, held by Charlie Joseph McDonnell set in late June of last year. All this while, Apple's reworking its keyboard software for the iPad. iOS 5 will bring changes to the iPad keypad including allowing users to split the keyboard when in landscape mode.
Fastest finger first
According to reports, Saakashvili “spent months getting ready for those few seconds”. However, he cannot break the world record for typing on a computer keyboard. That record is held by Sudhakar Raju in 3.52 seconds. This record cannot be taken over to the iPhone either. The Guinness Book of Records recommends this phrase: “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,” which has only been attempted on a Samsung Galaxy S smartphone and not on an iPhone yet. That sentence has been done in 25.94 seconds.
