This morning, British climber Rod Baber, sponsored by Motorola and using a MOTORIZR Z8, was the first person to make a phone call and text message from the summit of Everest.
He said on his blog,
"This is the call I made using my MOTO Z8 from 29,035 feet / 8848 meters on the highest peak of Everest at 5.37am local time this morning. Everyone is in good spirits and it's absolutely amazing up here being surrounded by the Himalayas.
