If Guiness even records obscure records such as "Lowest rated superhero video game" (Guiness Book Gamer's Edition 2009), they ought to have some room for a new record category "World's fastest two-thumb typing"! I tried to apply for a new record category to be created, but they declined the application.

So... Guiness denied the record category -- meaning nobody in the world can apply for world's fastest two-thumb thumb typing, it has to be one-thumb.

Just a heads up to any others considering of applying (for any smartphone, not just BlackBerry). Some big pull (RIM) is needed to convince them that this is a viable new record category, with the recent explosion of QWERTY smartphones. If one of you manage to convince Guiness otherwise, please let me know -- I'm easily googled.
that is absolutely rediculous!

I wonder why.

After about a dozen tries, I hit 76.01 WPM on the same text that you did in your video. Mark, I think it's about time we collaborate and throw some ideas together

Sounds like a showdown is in our near future.

I ended up getting 81.62 wpm this morning. Yes I have it on video. Will be uploaded soon enough. That was with mistakes as well, so the speeds can definitely go higher than that!
