Nokia Astound gets run over by 4000 kilogram Bus , Survives !

on April 2, 2011 – 12:27 pm7 Comments

Nokia launched the C7 as the Astound in USA on T-Mobile during CTIA and now Nokia USA has posted a video which shows the device being run over by a 4 Tonne (4000 Kilograms) Ovi Bus and watch the video for the rest of the action.

The Astound is not run over once but twice by the wheel and it is still in working condition. The main reason the phone seems undamaged might be due to the presence of Gorilla glass on the display.

My Nokia E71 has gone under my bike’s wheel a couple of times and the handset still works although the display had a small scratch. There is no doubt that Nokia makes great hardware.

Now anyone wants to try that with an iPhone 4 ?

    Thats a little fanboyish :D

    Nokia devices always have great hardware but most people don’t buy a smart phone to test it how it performs under a truck….People go for the software experience and that’s where Symbian hasn’t been able to perform…..

    This is quite absurd to compare phones on this basis. Tell me one thing. Do you buy phones to make your bikes and buses run over it???

    And as far as i phone is concerned, its far better than Nokia. Just as some facts i’d like to tell you that apple puts all features in one handset where as nokia has never even thought of doing so.
