Video: First Tweet From Mt. Everest

British mountain climber Kenton Cool used a 3G connection to make a call and send out a tweet on the summit of Mount Everest.

This was made possible when in October 2010, the Nepali mobile network operator Ncell installed the first 3G station at the base camp of Mount Everest.

Now, in a nifty marketing trick, Samsung sponsored Cool to use its most powerful smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S II, to make the first 3G call and send out a tweet from the mountain’s summit.
