On February 24, 2008, 18 year old Mr. Jeramy Sng Gim, a Republic Polytechnic student, at the "SingTel SMS shootout 2008", Singapore Telecommunications' fourth SMS contest, tapped the Guinness Book of World Records phrase in 41.40 seconds. In 41.4 seconds, Tegic T9 produces the SMS Guinness Book of World Records Phrase in 8.02 characters per second. In 41.4 seconds, the MultiTap Phone™ produces the SMS Guinness Book of World Records Phrase in 7.12 characters per second. When entering two data characters on the same key, the technique used to bypass the one second delay function, is entering a wrong data character followed by the clear "Clr" key. Using this technique with Tegic T9, requires 346 key presses to produce the Guinness Book of World Records phrase, which is 8.36 data characters per second. Using the [#] key entry technique on the MultiTap Phone™, requires 304 key presses to produce the Guinness Book of World Records phrase, which is 7.34 data characters per second. The MultiTap Phone™ requires one data character per second less than Tegic T9 to produce the Guinness Book of World Records phrase. Using the simultaneous MultiTap Phone™ data entry method requires only 163 key presses to produce the 160 data character Guinness Book of World Records phrase, which is less than 3.98 data characters per second.
