The Second Annual LG National Texting Competition has come to a close, and LG Electronics MobileComm U.S.A., Inc. (LG Mobile Phones) has crowned another victor in their quest for fast and furious thumbs. On July 9, New York City was taken by whirlwind as the fastest texters from all over the country participated in a grueling battle of the thumbs for the second year in a row.
Beating more than 15,000 entrants, Nathan Schwartz, a 20-year-old Clyde, Ohio resident, took home the title of $50,000 in prize money and indisputable bragging rights for his speed-texting skills.
The winning phrase was "Does everybody here know the alphabet? Let's text. Here it goes… AbcDeFghiJKlmNoPQrStuvWXy & Z! Now I know my A-B-C's, next time won't you text with me?" which Schwartz completed in sixty seconds. The contestants used any LG phones that featured full QWERTY keypads including the enV2, enV and Voyager.
