Posted on 09 April 2008 - 9:01 am What are you doing?
I update my blog once a day. Showing you photos of what I do daily... my trips... my gadgets... my friends... my outings.
... but have you ever wondered what I do between each blogposts? Stuff I do like "drinking coffee at Starbucks" or "taking photos of a pen in the store room"...
Well you can now know all about it if you "follow" me on Twitter!
Instead of asking people "what are you doing?" why not let them tell you automatically? haha
1. Register an account at Twitter. 2. Go to http://twitter.com/smashpop 3. Click on "follow" under my photo. 4. Go to Settings > Phone & IM 5. Insert your phone number, SMS a code given to the Twitter number to verify. 6. Click on "following" on your right side bar, look for my name. 7. Switch "device update" to ON (this means you will get SMS whenever I update my Twitter. 8. Tick the radio button on the right side bar to "Phone" instead of "IM" 9. Get your friends to join and start telling them "What are you currently doing!" :D
so... after the boat ride, we went back to the hotel and slept.
The next day at about 9am, we attended the Nokia Music Store discussion at the ballroom.
We discussed about the newly launched Nokia's music service.
At the end of the session, the host played some tracks of his N95 and those who can guess the songs right gets a reward.
We then went over to the next ballroom to experience N-gage.
There are a few booths showcasing the latest N-gage games and we had to play all of them in a contest that everyone took part in.
The next session was the opportunity to interview all the Managers of the different departments for Nokia... since we went as Media... we get to ask anything we want regarding the few segments like Nseries, Nokia Music, Nokia Maps, OVI... etc
One of the big guys in from Nokia demonstrating Share on OVI to us.
It all ended at about 3pm. Dinner was at 630pm... so we went back to our rooms to rest.
Posted on 07 April 2008 - 11:46 pm N96, N78 and 6210
ok after 1 week of random stuff and wireless challenge stories, let's get back to our Sydney photos.
Remember the dancers led us to the top floor of the boat?
There, we got to try out all the new and upcoming Nokia models.
First up, the Nokia N96.
Its the successor of the current N95. Built in 16GB internal memory, 5mpx camera with Carl Zeiss optics, WIFI, 3g, 2.8" screen, DVB-H(thats live TV), memory card support up to 8GB and much more.
That's the N96 compared to my N95. hehe
Watch this video of me asking the Nokia crew to show me something that the N96 can do.
Next up. The Nokia 6210 Navigator
It's the successor of the famous 6110 navigator but this one is a lot better. It has 3.2mpx camera and built in Nokia Maps 2.0... means you can now activate satellite view and see real life images of the map.
It has a built in compass too! Don't know how it works?
Watch this video below! The Nokia manager telling me how to work with the GPS and built in compass.
What else was there? The Nokia N78 of course.
Remember N73? Anyone of you guys using? Well this one is the newer version of the same thing. What is so special about this model?
It's still using 3mpx camera with autofocus... but it now has WIFI!
The N78 also comes with FM transmitter. What's that? Well... you can set your N78 to broadcast at a certain radio frequency.. lets say... 92.9fm.. and you can tune your car radio(or watever radio) to the same frequency and you can listen to the mp3s played on the N78! How cool is that. ahhaa
