Tap the tag with your Nokia phone, and you’ll learn whether that eatery was truly worth the detour.

    Nokia Ad Exchange is the next new revenue stream for Nokia after the additions to location… this was all laid out of February 13th, 2011 in Barcelona (two days after Feb11). Good to see it come to fruition!

    Now, let’s see if the future brings any meaningful ad revenues.

    Anyway, let’s see if WP8 will be more successfull and useful. MS and most of all Nokia needs a successfull os. It would have been helpful for them to not screw up the early adapters, but ok, too late to care about that.
    If WP8 fails, there won’t be any further support for any Nokia device, so it won’t matter how they threat WP7.x users ;)
