Adventurer Eric Larsen sets out on record breaking expedition, brings along Windows Phone

Headed to the North Pole anytime soon? You probably don’t have any upcoming plans to travel there, but adventurer Eric Larsen and his 3-person team do. They’re preparing to travel the Arctic Ocean from Northern Ellesmere Island to the geographic North Pole. Eric and his team are hoping to do the 500-mile journey in less than 49 days. If they accomplish this feat, they’ll have beaten a world record set in 2006. Eric isn’t alone on this trip. He’ll be carrying a few Windows Phone handsets with him.

Microsoft is supporting Eric’s trip to the North Pole. They’ll be providing him and his team with Nokia Lumia 1020’s and Lumia 1520’s to help document the expedition. Obviously these are two phones that will be welcomed in photographing the trip.

Interested in following Eric’s journey? You can grab updates on his website or by following him on Twitter (@ELexplore). We’re excited for Eric and his team. We’re even more excited knowing that he’ll be using some PureView power to photograph the potential record setting journey.

Good luck to Eric and his teammates!
