Samsung Galaxy S II marketing goes all the way: tweeting and video-calling from Mount Everest

Authored by: Alex T. — May 9, 2011

 After their bizarre campaign to have a bunch of British tech-blogs do extreme reviews of the Galaxy S II, a brave British mountaneer now climbed atop of Mount Everest to tweet and video-call his conquest from the Galaxy S II. But wait, there's more past the break.

 Mount Everest only got 3G reception in October last year, and, as you can probably imagine, it's spotty and pretty slow. That didn't stop Kenton Cool (yes, that's his actual name FWIW) from climbing all the way to the top and tweeting about it, tagging Samsung UK while at it. Apparently it's Kenton's 9th time climbing the tallest mountain in the world and I can imagine that Samsung chipped in a little for equipment and stuff, seeing as they reap some major badass-points from the marketing it gets them. Now if only the phone was out so us couch potatoes can bask in it's superphone glory while leaving the rollercoaster riding and mountain climbing to others.
