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.

Awesome. This post did make me smile this morning.
idk if its a hack buts its definitely one of those fun informative articles that i like
o wait nvm the phones were being “hacked” on
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.
The music.. It ruins it.
Also, not even close to being ‘hack’ related.
the goggles… they do nothing
I always wondered why Nokia phones were so damn durable…now I know.
But still no good test for faulty Flash memory and warranty repairs taking up to three weeks… groan…
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
If I wanted to read Engadget, I’d read Engadget.
I agree with mars, music totally ruined it.
Lots of cool one off stuff though.
This a prove , of how Nokia devices power :D
Aha nice, they really have like 8 different tests.
