Mobile phone throwing back

Jul 28 2003 - 04:22 PM ET | Unique
A few weeks ago we mentioned a story on an interesting new sport--mobile phone throwing. Well, it's gone global. The original story was out of the Ukraine, but the world championships are in Finland on August 23rd. Nokia's HQ is located in Finland, but it's not clear if their is a correlation. If you have a phone to waste, the record is 66.72 meters (about 219 feet). Our advice is to throw something like the Motorola V70 instead of something like the Nokia 3650.
