Kenton Cool is a British mountain climber that was able to send the first tweet from the top of Mount Everest thanks to a 3G station that Ncell installed there in October 2010. Samsung sponsored Kenton to use the Samsung Galaxy S II to make the first 3G call and tweet from the summit.

“I’ve climbed Everest before but have never been able to share the exhilaration and excitement I experience when I reach the top with those back home,” stated Cool. Cool climbed Everest eight times before.
