Textware solutions announces Dom Perignon IV Speed Contest
The Dom Perignon IV Speed Contest, sponsored by Textware Solutions, starts 1 October 2004 and goes through 6 November 2004. The contest seeks those who can enter data the fastest on a Palm or Pocket PC, using a stylus. The Grand Prize winner in each category Palm devices and Pocket PCs will be awarded a bottle of Dom Perignon.

Publisher of the Fitaly alternative keyboard for the Palm and Pocket PC, Textware Solutions already held three Dom Perignon Speed Contests in 1998, 2000, and 2002. Past contest participants cruised at an average speed of 50 WPM (words per minute), with contest winners approaching or even surpassing 80 WPM, and repeatedly providing a factual demonstration that doing fast text entry on a PDA is a realistic proposition.

Entries to the Dom Perignon IV Speed Contest can be submitted with any application that uses a stylus for the entry of data on a Palm or Pocket PC device. This includes on-screen keyboards, keyboard overlays on the Graffiti area, as well as handwriting recognition programs. The use of shortcuts and word-completion or phrase-completion capabilities is not allowed.

Textware Solutions encourages everyone to participate, even if you presently do not use any of the above data entry solutions. Fully functional free trials of all of the Fitaly products are available for download on the www.fitaly.com site, and trial versions of other input methods are also available on the web.

In addition to the Dom Perignon Grand Prizes, weekly prizes will be awarded to the best twenty entries of each week of the contest. Weekly prizes are provided by Textware Solutions and contest cosponsors AstraWare, Blue Nomad, NeoHand, Pocket Informant, QuikSense, SoftMaker, StylusCentral, and ValkSoft.

The Fitaly Keyboard is available for 20746 Pocket PC devices (pictured) and Palm OS handhelds (with versions for 20640 Palm V and m515, 20704 Sony Clie, 20809 Palm M100 and Zire, 45011 Clie NR70, 49709 OS5 Clie NX70 and 67197 Tungsten T.
