If NASA wants to get the most powerful computing, the best mobile camera images and video, and the fastest Wi-Fi data transfers out of the Samsung Nexus S smartphone it recently launched on the Space Shuttle Atlantis, it might want to make sure the 4G cell phone is powered with a new extended mobile phone battery from OnTrion. OnTrion, which manufactures extended OEM-quality batteries, recently added the Samsung Nexus S-compatible model #I9020 to its inventory. This latest addition lasts up to three times longer than traditional mobile phone batteries, making it worthy of a history-making space mission.
This past summer, Samsung announced that its Nexus S smartphone would be "used by the [Atlantis] astronauts to access a broad range of capabilities and achieve better communication between land and sky." As InformationWeek reported earlier this week, that plan has successfully been put in action: "... the space agency outfitted free-flying satellites ... with modified Android-based Nexus S headsets from Samsung and successfully flew the first of the robots last month."
NASA doesn't plan to stop there, though. The administration "has bigger plans for the flying robots, aiming to simulate external free-flight excursions and test other more-challenging tasks to see what they can handle, the space agency said."
To make the grade, the cell phone better be optimally charged before it is put to the outer space test. A high-powered mobile phone battery with 2900m amp, like the compatible one OnTrion makes, can maximize the results NASA receives from this 21st century experiment. And if the phone and battery can handle distances exceeding 200,000 miles, not to mention space-age capabilities, then earthbound Samsung Nexus S 4G users can expect even greater airtime and output from an OnTrion extended battery.
