Yeah, landscape mode I got average of 45-50 wpm. I tried the portrait(is that holding it vertical?) and I got average of 35 wpm.
You can obviously type faster in landscape then.
Another reason why Apple needs to make landscape keyboard for all Apps that use keyboard.

I took it three times and got between 31 and 33 wpm each time. That's not too bad! Definitely faster than T9 on my old phone!

I am getting 30-35 using one or two fingers, with only a little use of autocorrect with two-finger entry. On the other hand, I struggle to get over 20 using the 2 thumbs approach, and the autocorrect doesn't do a very good job of correcting the mistakes. I'd love it if someone put together a little video on typing technique because I must be doing something seriously wrong to be so slow with my thumbs.

the slowest i've gotten is 37, and the fastest is 44 words per minute. strangely, the 37 rate had an error where the 44 didn't.

I always got between 37-49 WPM. Pretty good, equally as good as my Treo.

I tried this typing test when it first came out. I originally scored around 23 wpm. This time around i got 32 wpm with no errors. Good enough for me.
