Is this the world’s fastest iPhone-typist?

TUAW tells us the average typing speed using a QWERTY keyboard stands at 33-words per minute. That’s not what you’re seeing here in this video, in which YouTube user “konceptzoflife” shows he can type 152 percent faster than the average typist, delivering 83-words per minute – on an iPhone.

“The 83 WPM, which is the fastest I’ve seen on an iPhone, is still markedly shy of hardware QWERTY keyboard record holder Barbara Blackburn. The late Blackburn, whose fame made her a guest on Late Night with David Letterman (when he was on NBC after Johnny Carson), can maintain 150 WPM for a full 50 minutes, and can top out at 212 WPM ,” TUAW informs.
