CNET tortures a Nokia Lumia 900 to death

Always On - Torture testing the Nokia Lumia 900

Possibly because the Nokia Lumia 900 is nearing the end of its life cycle, CNET has decided to give theirs a glorious send-off, seeing if the handset lives up to the legendary ruggedness which has been a hallmark of the brand and is currently a meme going round the internet.

They started by freezing it for 2 hours, boiling it at 2000 degrees, knocking in a nail with the smartphone, and then repeatedly dropping it, all of which the phone survived with hardly a scratch.

The phone finally met its nemesis after being immersed in a swimming pool.  I’m sure next year’ s fully sealed waterproof version will laugh off even that challenge.
