Type testing on a few devices

Ever wonder how long it would take to type the exact same message on a Macbook, iPhone, a Newton, a Treo, or even actually writing it down on a pen and paper? Wouldn’t it be neat if someone did just that and then shared the results? Phil Gyford did too.

Phil compared writing the same 221-word passage using six different devices (including Pen & Paper) and shared the results on his site. It is very interesting to see the results and how far text-input on devices has come over the last few decades and even the last few years.
