Nokia: destroying phones for fun and profit

No matter how grumpy you are in the morning, this video should make you smile. This is one of the jobs many of us dream of. Take a tour around Nokia’s product testing facility with Engadget. Watch in the video as phones are squashed, pinched, smacked, baked, shaken, dialed, slid, opened, and closed repeatedly. Sure, we don’t get to see any of them obliterated, but it sure is fun to see those machines at work. Each one of these tests will be run until the phones eventually come apart or cease to function. Too bad they didn’t show us that part of it.

  1. I looked round Nokia’s their test facility in Farnborough once. Looks like mostly the same kit, but they did have a cool device on a massive vertical rail that which held a phone with a pneumatic sucker, then accelerated very fast downwards and release it letting it smash into a concrete slab.

  2. I have a boulder cell phone, the GZone from casio, supposedly made to military specs, but not to mine. had it for about a 9 months and the case has cracked the keys don’t work all the time and one short drop and the Micro sd card unseats itself, maybe they should take a lesson from nokia. My N800 has been dropped and squashed untold times and still runs great. kudos nokia
