BMX-ing it up with the Lumia 800

Inspired by Nokia’s extreme sports videos for Mobile World Congress, one young BMX rider has created his very own extreme biking video using the awesome imaging powers of the Lumia 800.

We’re not shy to push the boundaries here at Nokia Connects, which is why we challenged three young sportsmen to test the powers of the Nokia Lumia 900 to the limit by making videos of themselves skating, running and riding through the streets and skylines of Barcelona during Mobile World Congress 2012. One of these sportsmen was 22-year-old James Ivett, who has been a BMX rider for nine years – experienced enough to make the most of the amazing sites of Barcelona on two wheels!

James’ biking antics were enough to inspire 21-year-old communications student Germaine Eloka from Montpellier, France, to make his very own video using nothing but the Nokia Lumia 800. Germaine was very impressed by the imaging capabilities of the Lumia 800, saying that it ‘films better that some Hd camera[s]’ – as well as loving the ‘new skin and new image’ of the Windows phone. As far as Germaine is concerned, the Lumia 800 is the ‘perfect’ mobile device, and as for how it fares BMX-ing it up – you’ll just have to watch Germaine’s video and find out!

Are you inspired by these extreme videos? Think you can do something even cooler with a Nokia phone? Then why notcome up with an awesome idea and see if YOU could trial a Nokia?!
