Search on for Singapore’s fastest SMS thumbs
As part of its programme of activities to commemorate 125 years of telecommunications in Singapore, SingTel is organising a nationwide competition to uncover the mobile phone user with the fastest thumbs in Singapore.

Participants of the SingTel SMS Shootout have to key a 160-character SMS message on the mobile phone accurately and in the shortest time possible, without using the mobile phone’s predictive text mode or spelling aids. The message is this:

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.

The message is the standard one provided by Guinness World Records for all record-breaking attempts. The current world record is 67 seconds.

The SingTel SMS Shootout will give recognition to a unique mobile phone skill. With more than 80 per cent of the population owning a mobile phone, SMS has become an integral part of many Singaporeans’ lives. SMS traffic on SingTel’s mobile networks has more than doubled in the last two years and Singapore is believed to have one of the highest SMS usage rates in the world.
