Android in Space at 60,000 feet Height

Few weeks back, Google launched new Nexus S smartphone with Android Gingerbread OS.
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.
