Did you guys watch the Olympics Opening Ceremony last night? I must admit I was expecting to be thoroughly disappointed due to the spectacular show Beijing, China provided in 2008. I’m glad it turned out really well. Fantastic in fact. People are still talking about it today. London didn’t try to out do China. They didn’t try to copy or catch up. London 2012 played to its strengths. Unique history, unique personalities, British music and the British sense of humour. I loved the Queen jumping out of the helicopter with James bond, Mr Bean in the orchestra, the copper petals from each country coming together as a flower and then joining as the cauldron. Team GB were brilliant in their own unique way. For some reason of course, I’m relating this to Nokia who may not win by trying to beat the competition by copying them or by going by their rules on how to win. Nokia can still be successul in their own way by playing to Nokia’s strengths.
One of those main strengths is Nokia’s location platform. Here’s Nokia Maps guide for the Olympics ceremony.
