Nokia Lumia 920 Run Over, But Still Works

A Finnish newspaper reports about a Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone which got run over and buried by a 24-ton earth mover. The screen was cracked up and the frame bent, but it still worked!

Ilta-Sanomat (Finnish for the evening news according to Wikipedia) reports on the story of a Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone, which got run over and buried by a 24-ton earth mover but still worked afterwards.

As you can see by the nearby photos, the phone did not escape unharmed, but when a worker lost the phone and called it, he heard a ringing below ground. Six men dug and found it about a half meter below ground.

The frame was bent and the display fragmented, but the story says everything worked except for hanging up on calls.

Hat tip to AllThingsD.
