Google has launched it’s new smartphone Nexus S into space. Literally.
To celebrate the start of sales Google did some promotion for Nexus S, Google’s mobile employees have decided to attach the cell phone to a balloon and send it into space. Overall this is first phone lunched into space.
One employee, Wang Zi, explained that the launch should help in testing some hardware sensors. Astronauts could be linked to Google’s negotiations with the British manufacturer of satellites, which should help in building small satellites, using the technology from Nexus S.
Arrangements have stopped work at about 18 kilometers, and at least one reached a height of 30 kilometers, which is twice the average altitude of passenger planes. On the way back again, “came to himself,” and worked.
