Microsoft has been supporting Jamie Ramsay's running journey from Vancouver, Canada to Buenos Aires, Argentina for some time now, offering him devices like the latest Lumia smartphones and the Microsoft Band. As he gets closer to the finish line of his 18,000 km (about 11,100 miles) journey, Microsoft decided to give him a Lumia 950 XL smartphone and a Display Dock to help him communicate on his solo run.
Ramsay is running to support a number of different charities, including CALM, WaterAid UK and Macmillan. Microsoft stated:
"He loved the capacity to use Continuum and Microsoft Display Dock with his Lumia 950 XL, and connect it to a keyboard, mouse and monitor to enable a PC-like experience. As a keen multi-tasker, Jamie was delighted he could have Microsoft Word projected onto a big screen to write his blog posts and embed images he had captured with his Lumia, whilst still using the phone to carry out other tasks too, such as texting."
Ramsay is nearing the end of his run, but will also be taking a side trip to the UK to meet the Queen at Buckingham Palace on Sunday, Jan. 10.
