Nokia Lumia 920 sent to the edge of space, survives to tell the tale

Finnish retailer Verkkokauppa.com decided to make one of their Nokia Lumia 920 handsets a bit more special than usual, and sent it up to the edge of space via a weather balloon.

The handset went up to the height of 30 km and spent more than 27 minutes in the freezing cold.  When the weather balloon burst it of course also fell all the way down.

It would still however come as no surprise to our readers that the handset, which has after all survived being run over by a car, made it back fully intact and none the worse for wear, except for being christened the Nokia Lumia 920 Space Edition.

Thanks James for the tip.
