iPhone vs Asus Netbook Extreme Typing Test


Crave UK's Rory Reid did a great experiment: Test the typing accuracy of the iPhone vs an Asus Netbook in a rally car racing at full speed. The video and the results will surprise you.

Jump to minute 2:00 to get into the test itself:
Video here > Gizmodo - iPhone vs Asus Netbook Extreme Typing Test - Apple iPhone


Yes, the iPhone wins. Even with its software keyboard, it proves more accurate than the netbook's tiny keys. I think I see him doing some finger sliding with the iPhone at one pointówhich is a good way to get accurate typing under stress conditionsóbut my guess is that the iPhone word prediction and correction did the rest of the trick.


Some will argue that this test is too extreme and it will not happen in real life.
Obviously, those people have never ridden the New York City subway, which sometimes gets pretty close to this experience. Specially in some of the express lines, which feel like a amusement park crazy ride rather than a train. Sure, maybe the subway turns don't generate three times the force of gravity, but to me it feels close enough.

Re: iPhone vs Asus Netbook Extreme Typing Test

LOL the guy was so pro at typing at the iPhone that I was amused at the least...small keyboard you say.
it does a good job with predictive text. but the test I feel was somewhat skewed in favor of the iPhone as ane hand is more stable than 2 hands and the netbook was not at a stationery state..
LOL

Re: iPhone vs Asus Netbook Extreme Typing Test

Well the fastest typist in the world neither uses a net book or an iPhone or a regular qwerty keyboard, she uses the Dvorak keyboard, maybe we should have her competing with her keyboard and then select the winner.
