Can you speed-text? Samsung is testing Facebook users' typing skills

To promote its new full QWERTY-keyboard smartphone 'Stratopshere' Samsung has launched a Facebook application to test your skills at typing furiously fast.

To claim the title of the fastest typist you have to visit Samsung Mobile USA Facebook page from your mobile (I did but the application wasn't loaded) and start playing the game. You and your online competitor will be presented with a message to be typed. You earn more and more points by going into rounds.

Samsung expects that by leveraging Achievement functionality of the Facebook API gamers' results will be getting into their friends' news streams, thus catching their attention and drawing more people in to the application.

How is it going to help promote new Samsung's phone is actually quite blurry. Do I have to buy one to be fastest at typing? How does this game actually shows that a new smartphone would make my typing faster? It doesn't connect to my brain, unfortunately, to transform thoughts into sentences.
