Nathan Schwartz crowned National Texting Champion

lg Twenty-year-old Nathan Schwartz of Clyde, Ohio took home the $50,000 prize in LG’s National Texting Championship – the down and dirty battle on the QWERTY. 

Schwartz was able to accurately tap out a ridiculously long phrase in 60 seconds.  

According to LG, the winning phrase was:

"Does everybody here know the alphabet? Let’s text. Here it goes … AbcDeFghiJKlmNoPQrStuvWXy & Z! Now I know my A-B-C’s, next time won’t you text with me?"

Not to take anything away from Schwarz — that phrase is definitely impressive — but the contest was only open to people with activated, full QWERTY phones made by LG.
