First Tweet From Mount EverestFirst Tweet From Mount Everest, It’s official, the highest mountain in the world has witnessed his first tweet and thanks first phone call to a 3G network, a Samsung S Galaxy II, and a guy named Kenton Cool. Yes, he is so good; I call on your behalf. English mountaineer had climbed Everest eight times, however, Cool had never climbed the mountain 29,029 meters with a smartphone in your personality. Of course, as you can see in the video below, Samsung sponsored this little trick.

In a BBC News video, Mr. Cool said he decided to make this his ninth ascent because I wanted to show that the 3G radios worked at the highest place on earth.

In October 2010, Ncell, a mobile operator in Nepal, installed the first 3G stations in Everest base camp. The aim was to bring online services to the people of Nepal and the mountaineers who normally have to carry satellite phones or not at all cumbersome.

Cool foot of the summit, while thanking a weak signal and 3G phones Samsung Galaxy for giving him the opportunity to make this small step for mankind.

The guy is definitely a good its product placement. It is a pity that AT & T did not jump on board to deliver the ultimate insult to Verizon in the way of the world’s best “Do you hear me now” commercial.
