Eduard Saakashvili Breaks World Record for Fastest Typing on iPad

“I am very happy” Eduard said in comments broadcast by Georgian television explaining that he had spent months practicing and getting ready for the event.

“Our whole family has been nervous. I am a very proud mummy today,” said President Saakashvili’s Dutch wife, Sandra Roelofs, who watched her son’s triumph.

The event was documented by an observer from Guinness World Records in the former Soviet republic’s Black Sea resort of Batumi.

Eduard was give three chances (attempts) by the Guinness folks to break the existing World Record record of 6.61 seconds. Eduard’s constant  practice helped him  break the record in the first attempt itself. Quite lucky!

Here’s a chance for you to challenge Eduard. Get yourself an Apple iPad (in case if you don’t have one) and stand a chance to set a new world World Record.

There are various techniques explained on the Internet to type faster. There are some video posted on YouTube which explain and demonstrates how one can type faster on an iPad.

Here’s a video demonstration to type faster on an iPad.
