Watch Samsung Galaxy S II being sent into space today at 7am Eastern and send live messages!
The Samsung Galaxy S II will be tied to a space balloon and sent to the stratosphere as part of promotional activities supporting Japan, proving once again that Samsung is all-out marketing its finest example of cell
This, however, takes the Galaxy S II promotion to a whole new level, many miles above ground, and we hope the Ustream feed will work at 7am Eastern, 12pm GMT, when the show is about to begin. Moreover, it will be showing your tweets and messages live while flying up and away, so check-in with your Twitter, Facebook or Ustream account below, and start typing away your impressions. Samsung asks that you send some supporting messages to the Japanese as well.

@protozeloz. Yes, it was in Dec 2010 I believe, but then an iphone was sent out to space in October 2010 as well :)
So they copied Apple in 2010, and again now :)

This is an original Japanese festvity.
And of course you think Apple was the first to send a phone to space, right?

For some reason, I can only imagine SGII thinking this:
SPAAAAACE, wanna go to space
Dad, I'm in space.
I'm proud of you son.
Dad, are you space?

Launched 200 planes into space with the help of a helium-filled balloon.
Each plane is carrying a Samsung SD Memory Card with a message that someone, somewhere in the world has uploaded. The planes were dropped from 36,500 metres over Berlin, Germany.
