Sleeper hit of Mobile World Congress
Google it – it’s amazing.. If I could have one now, I’d get one.
Ewan’s written about it over on SMS Text News and on the right of this post there are two shots that I took next to my E61i for comparison etc…
Not soon after that I bumped into Jonathan Greene from Atmaspheric Endeavours – he had heard about this amazing device too so I took him round to take a look.
He took liberty of shooting a Qik video…
You really do have to see this thing in action to believe it – It’s all kinds of awesome! ๐
I’m sitting here RIGHT NOW at the Nokia Webcast in Hall 8 of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona…
Soundbites so far:
“35millions GPS devices to be shipped in ’08.”
“Nokia Maps 2.0 launched – Now includes ‘Pedestrian Navigation’ …Barcelona tours already planned via Nokia Maps…”
“Nokia N78 – follower of the N73 – shipping Q2 2008… includes FM transmitter.. Geotagging included..”
“The N95 user’s behavourial activities define the changes of consumers. The phone reinvented convergences… “
“N96 introduced. Iconic slider included… Kick stand included [like the N82] – shipping Q3… 550e.”
This last one is a bit pants if you ask me.
Looks too much like the N81, which is a horrid device… Meh… Full flash supported which is lovely but to be honest I’m not a fan…
More to follow…
SpinVox and Me are off to Barcelona in about 12hrs or so for the biggest mobile event of the year, Mobile World Congress…
I’m going to be blogging all over the shop – a large chunk of it here, some more here, videoing a bit here and here as well as micro-blogging a little bit here too.
If you’re going – see you there! If you’re not – why not keep track of me here!
Liveblogging from The Future of Mobile – at the BFI IMAX!
Tony Fish of Open Gardens kicked off proceedings (see pic), very impressive presentation too..
Am sending most of my notes to my Jaiku and i’ll write them up into a larger blog post in a day or so..
Luca Passani of Admob taking the stage now to talk about WURFL, (but not before he unleashes at Vodafone and Novarra re: The Mobile Web).
As i said – Follow my Jaiku for live updates or come back later for an overall writeup…
