DWT: Drinking While Typing

How fast can you type on your PDA? TextWare solutions wants to know, and they're willing to hand over a sweet bottle of Dom Perignon to the speediest typer.

The Dom Perignon IV Speed Contest runs from October 1 to November 6. Speed demons can use any stylus text entry system on their Palm or Pocket PC to enter the contest. Naturally, shortcuts and word completion functions are a no-no and must be disabled. The fasted typist gets the bottle, while twenty runner-ups get other awards.

Given my typing speed, I'd probably be looking at winning a 5 year-old bottle of Pabst Blue Ribbon.
