A phone fit for MegaRamp — It’s Windows Phone vs. MegaRamp in the latest installment of the Windows Phone Me video series. Since its debut in 2004, MegaRamp has transformed both skateboarding and BMX events, sending top athletes skyborne on its monster 90-foot ramp.
This video provides a deeper look into the MegaRamp event team and top skater Jake Brown. It also spotlights how these daredevil dudes use their Windows Phones to film and critique skaters, and update and share Word documents, schedules, and scorecards in real time.
