    Phone giant Nokia is looking into research that harnesses the power of lightning which could potentially see consumers tap one of nature's most significant energy sources to charge their devices in a sustainable manner.

    Nokia says the experiment, in partnership with the University of Southampton, underlines its 150-year commitment to innovation and delivering the most pioneering products to its customers.

    In the experiment, the Nokia Lumia 925 was hit with the massive charge, and survives - which the phone maker says is testament to the renowned high quality and durability of Nokia's devices and the company's continuing research to increase the already outstanding reliability of its products.
