新加坡16岁学生成为世界短信王
Singaporean is world's fastest text messager
[ 2006-11-15 08:42 ]

Singaporean student Ang Chuang Yang.

A Singaporean student broke the Guinness World Record for the shortest time needed to type a 160-character SMS (short message service) message on Sunday after whizzing through the task in less than 42 seconds in a competition.

Sixteen-year-old Ang Chuang Yang typed the SMS message in 41.52 seconds, beating the previous record of 42.22 seconds set by American Ben Cook in July, according to Singapore Telecommunications, organisers of the competition.

In a statement after breaking the record, the 16-year old boy said, "I will try for 39 seconds next year."

Ang said that the trick to speedy text messaging was to use a mobile phone with larger keys on the dial pad.

SMS messaging competitions around the world use the same SMS text provided by the Guinness organization.

The record-breaking message is as follows: "The razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human."

在上周日的手机短信输入大赛中,一名新加坡学生用了不到42秒的时间输完一条长度为160个字符的短信,从而打破了吉尼斯世界纪录。

据比赛组织者新加坡电信介绍,这位名叫洪庄洋的16岁学生以41.52秒的成绩刷新了美国少年本·库克于今年七月创下的42.22秒的纪录。

洪庄洋在破纪录后发表的一份声明中说:“明年我将冲刺39秒。”

他还“透露”,用按键较大的手机输短信能使速度变快。

全世界的手机短信输入比赛用的都是由吉尼斯组织提供的同一条短信。

这条短信的内容是:The razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human.(拥有锋利牙齿的Serrasalmus 及Pygocentrus属水虎鱼,是世界上最凶猛的淡水鱼,但实际上,它们很少攻击人类。)
