You all know how difficult it is to get a fair comparison of input methods.
Any claim is likely to be dismissed as marketing hype, as it may sometimes be the case. So the idea is to have a contest where all participants can be measured on the same basis.

Dom Perignon III Speed Contest

Just type the following 40 words with the method of your choice and record your time with FitalyLetris for the Palm or FitalyLetris for the Pocket PC:

What you need to do to have a chance to win the contest is to tap this sentence as fast as you can without any error. One more thing you need to have for a valid entry is a witness.

Then submit a message on this forum with a title starting with Method - Time.

You have a chance to win the prestigious bottle of Dom Perignon and one of the 80 weekly awards made by cosponsors of this contest: Blue Nomad, Quik Sense, Paulcomputing, PocketInformant, IA Style, and ttools.

A first Dom Perignon Contest took place in July 1998, won by Marcus McRae. Two years later, the Dom Perignon II Contest was won by Faith Perez of Australia. With more input methods available now in 2002, the time has come to reassess what can be achieved on these wonderful PDAs.

This is the purpose of this second iteration of the contest, which ends
on December 20, 2002, just in time to celebrate the Holidays with your awards.

PS. For early entries, just indicate your time as shown in FitalyLetris. The gif image can be submitted later, when you submit a later entry, and in any case for the final awards.
