15-Year-Old Sets Guinness World Record for Fastest iPad Typing

At just 15 years old, Eduard Saakashvili, the son of Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, has achieved a remarkable feat by setting a new Guinness world record for the fastest typing on an iPad.

Using the on-screen keyboard, Eduard managed to type the alphabet in a mere 5.26 seconds, surpassing the previous record held by Charlie Joseph McDonnell, a British teen, by over a second.

The record-setting attempt was closely monitored by an official from Guinness to ensure its validity.

It remains to be seen whether the introduction of the split-screen keyboard in iOS 5 will influence the performance of future competitors.

Congratulations to Eduard on his impressive achievement.
