Smok'n Stylus and Uncanny Thumbs!

After only one week in the Dom Perignon text entry speed contest, some amazing times have been posted. One thumb typer using his Treo 270 has typed over 70 words per minute! The fastest time for the Palm is at 67.73 words a minute, using FitalyStamp. The overall current leader, from Australia, is using Fitaly for the Pocket PC and is over 77 words per minute. Wow!

The competition runs until December 20. The grand prize is a bottle of Dom Perignon for the fastest times in each of the three categories. Palm, PPC, and thumbtyping. But weekly prizes are awarded to the top speedsters for that week and makes a lot of contestants happy.

Below are the first week results
