Nseries LA event: Preliminaries & sea of phones

| September 30, 2007 | Reply

Ok, so I just realised now why all my shots keep getting blurred with sunbursts at the lower left corner – there’s a massive smudge on the dang lens that’s preventing the camera from focusing properly – eeek! Sorry guys, I only noticed that now. (Now, maybe with no lens cover on the new N95 variants, that will be easier to notice?)

Anyways, these are some shots leading up to the actual event. When I came down the lift/elevator to get to the Lobby, Jonathan Green of atmaspheric | endeavours entered at one stop. I was like, “OMG, is that really him?” Star struck as ever, I kept schtum – then he hook out his iPhone! Aargh! A couple I wanted to see in person, never thought it would happen in an elevator.

Jonathan’s iPhone with my N95. That was the first time I used the iPhone and it was very nice to know how to use it pretty much without ever having seen or used one before. Everytime Jonathan explained a feature, Christian(below) was nodding with a smile, “I know, I know”.

It’s very  slick. The whole touch interface was a delight to use. In picture flicking, music scrolling, all except text input. Man, that was harder than I thought it would be. I couldn’t even get the letter my finger was directly pressing…what the fork? Susan and Jonathan, the two iPhone owners said it takes a while and it gets better in that time.

Delon was really pissed, he couldn’t get to type the “w” for howard in the url! Thumbs down for iPhone!

IMO, it’s a great head turner. Not going to fit the bill on my current needs as a mobile user, no 3G/3.5G, crippled bluetooth, no GPS, however it’s an instant conversation starter.

“Oh, is that an iPhone?”

“Sure, you wanna take a look?”

iPhone themes…N93 and the iPhone.

Delon (above right) took some comparison shots of our clamshells, Mark’s (above left) N93i, his own N76 and my rather shoddy looking N93.

(Yes, sorry again for this blur…)

This got me thinking…hmmm what with everyone being here having at least a couple of phones, why not get a shot of all of them together? So I asked the peeps who were at the lobby and this is what we got.

In order of screen size

Yes, there is an iPod touch there. A bit disappointed, I thought we would overfill the table with phones, but still pretty good. (4 devices on that table aren’t even phones)

After this photo was taken, we set off outside for the “coach”. Check out on another post as that will be my LA event blog post – the whole reason for going out to LAX.
