Go On an Adventure with Windows Phone!
If you had to pick one phone to travel with you to the North Pole, which would it be?
When adventurer Eric Larsen left for the top of the globe in early March, his digital companions consisted of a Nokia Lumia 1020 and Lumia 1520, which helped him to take amazing photographs, document and share his journey with the world.
Most of us can only dream of living an adventure like Eric’s. We may, however, join him in making the most of our Windows Phones, and what better way to do so than through the latest apps?
So read on and live your own mobile adventure, from exploring food haunts, to your personal cloud, and even up into space!
