I won't attend then, as i'll watch it offline later. I'm sure it will be archived. In the meantime, Nokia has announced a couple of new products today. I'll go and review them later today if I do get a chance. The amusing thing is that Nokia is behaving more and more as Apple: the sites are fully up and operational with product pages, pix, etc. and the products are available immediately (or ALMOST) on the retail market.
* a new tablet N800: too bad for the N770 (who would want it now ?, although I own one too...). lots of new stuff, although I like the idea of the integrated webcam: "the Nokia N800 is commercially available immediatelly in the United States and in selected markets in Europe at estimated retail price of 399 EUR/USD (excluding local taxes)"
It should come with Skype at some point: "The first implementation on the Nokia N800 is expected to be made available for download by the end of first half of 2007."
* a nokia N93i (an internet edition update): it looks slimmer and more compact, and comes with an embedded VOX app from SixApart, and a 1 Gb memory card in the sales pack. Too bad I already have 2 N93 that are really bulky !
"The Nokia N93i, which is based on S60 3rd Edition software on Symbian OS, is expected to start shipping in volumes during the first quarter of 2007 with an estimated, pre-tax, unsubsidized sales price of approximately 600 euros."
* a cute girly N76: it looks very much like the Moto RAZR; good news that Nokia is finally slimming down their phones. Should be a really nice buy for everyone.
"The Nokia N76, which is based on S60 3rd Edition software on Symbian OS, is expected to start shipping in volumes during the first quarter of 2007 with an estimated, pre-tax, unsubsidized sales price of approximately 390 euros."
* and a more mass market phone that did not get my attention at all, but reding through the press releases, it should have: "he Nokia 6131 NFC handset which integrates Near Field Communications (NFC) technology to enable information sharing, service initiation and payment & ticketing capability, all activated with just one tap of the device."
Anyways, I'm totally sold to the Nseries line of products by now, having owned a N770, an N91, an N90, two N93, an N80, an N70 and an N73 :) I need to talk to the Bloggers program guys ;:)))
I like BTW this quote of OPK:
"More than 850 million people have a Nokia mobile phone in their hands. No other consumer electronics company in the world has ever had such a customer base." In 2006, Nokia was the world's largest camera manufacturer with approximately 140 million cameras sold as well as close to 70 million music enabled devices, making Nokia the world's largest manufacturer of music devices as well."
