Zip Line smoked by a Windows Phone

While Ben the PC Guy was busy smoking the competition at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show with his Windows Phone, Jimmy Lee over at Nokia Innovation was tackling a challenge of his own.

The challenge was to take a photo, upload it to Facebook and tag a friend with a Nokia Lumia 710. Simple task, right? Toss in that you have to do all this while riding a zip line down a mountain and finish the tasks before you reach the bottom and it gets interesting. The tasks were completed with time to spare.

The challenge not only demonstrates the speed of Windows Phone and the Lumia but also the ease in which you can accomplish tasks. I guess if you ever find yourself racing down a mountain on a zip line, you know you have plenty of time to snap a few shots and post them to Facebook.
