Singaporean thumbs mobile phone record

A 23-year-old Singaporean woman appears to have set a world record for sending text messages over a mobile phone.

Kimberly Yeo thumbed 26 words in 43.24 seconds into her phone, beating a world record of 67 seconds for the same words set by a Briton last September, Singapore’s dominant telephone carrier, Singapore Telecommunications, said on Monday.

Mobile phones are an ubiquitous accessory in technology-savvy Singapore where more than four out of five people own a handset, giving the wealthy city-state one of the world’s highest mobile phone penetration rates.
