Nokia Lumia 800 goes Mach 5... in a wind tunnel
The Nokia Lumia 800 has gotten quite a bit of praise for its unibody design, but apparently that didn't mean anything because we hadn't seen the phone survive a test in hypersonic wind tunnel. We had never really considered how cool it would be to see a smartphone in a wind tunnel, but it's something we wouldn't mind seeing more often. 

The good fellows of NokNok have access to a wind tunnel for some reason, and so they dropped the Lumia 800 inside to see what would happen. The wind tunnel got pumped up to 3,603 miles per hour, which is just under Mach 5, and supposedly is something like the speed of a jet in a nosedive. The Lumia survived, but it didn't come out without some scratches. That's not too surprising though. 

Still, this is something we want to see more.

Coolish i guess but without any other phones we have no references to see if this phone actually did that well.

It's just air... for 1/10 of a second

Honestly, I thought the phone was flung at mach5 from the title.
