We have seen a number of different wacky (and pointless) challenges in the past, but this one was too fun to pass up. Crave’s Rory Reid set about to create the ultimate typing challenge, pitting Apple’s iPhone against an Asus Eee PC netbook. Rather than anything sedate however, this challenge was set to the extreme.
Rory was seated alongside 14-time European Rallycross champion Kenneth Hansen. He had to type ‘The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog’ as best he could whilst hurtling around the Lydden race track in Dover in a £1m rally car. The car does 0-60mph in an astonishing 2.39 seconds whilst taking corners at 80mph.
The netbook has a full QWERTY keyboard, but the iPhone has a touchscreen with auto-correct feature. Click through for the full video and the winner. The result may surprise you (it did us).
