Watch the Nokia Lumia 800 Survive Hypersonic Wind Speeds Over 3,600MPH

By Sam Gibbs on at

I’m not sure why you’d want to do it, but the Nokia fanboys over at NokNok decided to see if the Lumia 800 survived at hypersonic, Mach 5 wind speeds – that’s over 3,600mph. Surprisingly it did, and seemed to work all right afterwards too.

I bet you the Lumia 710 wouldn’t have fared so well, or a whole host of other cheaper smartphones; bits would have been flying off all over the place. In the video you can see the turbulent air surrounding the phone – it’s pretty cool to watch in slow motion.

Anyway, now you know that even if you can’t survive being torn apart by hypersonic wind speeds, your phone might. [NokNok via WMPoweruser]
