First 3G call ever made from Mountain Everest using latest SGS II(2)


Kenton Cool sponsored by Samsung succesfuly made a 3G call and tweeted from the peak’s of Mountain Everest using the latest dual-core Samsung Galaxy S II(2).

“Kenton Cool climbed 29,029-feet to the summit of the mountain, and successfully sent out a tweet and made a phone call with the phone’s 3G connection. In case you were wondering why the phone even had 3G service there, it’s all thanks to Ncell, a carrier that installed the first 3G station at Everest’s base camp. The goal of Ncell was to give mountaineers the option to use a regular cellphone for communication purposes instead of lugging around a cumbersome satellite phone.”
