Android In Space – The Full Story

Google’s new Nexus S smartphone has launched. Literally.

To celebrate the release of the Nexus S, Google employees constructed seven hobbyist-style air balloons, each containing a phone, and sent them into orbit.

The phones stopped functioning at 60,000 feet, about twice as high as most planes fly. Not bad for being in space without a helmet. Google says the phones started working again on descent.

Check out this YouTube video they posted.
