A 2o year old, a Cleveland State College student, Nathan Schwartz recently won the 2008 LG National Texting Championship which took place last July 9 at the New York Roseland Ballroom. He came out the winner among 15000 contestants in a 20 hour battle who were being tested for speed and accuracy. The winning phrase was: (texted in 60 seconds)
"Does everybody here know the alphabet? Let’s text. Here it goes …

text with me?"
Nathan won $50,000 which doubled from last year’s prize of only $25,000. This is the 2nd year that LG has sponsored a texting contest featuring their LG phones that has QWERTY keypads namely the LG Env, LG Env2 and LG Voyager. Last year winner was 13 year old Morgan Pozgar and the winning word was: supercalifragilisticexpialidocios.
