| May 14, 2013 | 43 Replies



We’re in London baby! Haha. Check out the cast and crew of Nokia fans above ready and waiting for Nokia’s announcement in a few hours.

For a larger image of the above, click here.

Yesterday (because that’s how long it took to sort the photos and upload them on this connection :p) at the Nokia HQ, the attendees that @Nokia_Connects collected up got together for some food, drink and a little chat & mingle.

The full set is up on flickr.

Name the owner of those Lumia laces :p

Chillin on the bean bags

Nokia peeps


Swiiish. Once the fish eye was on it was easier to get in the photos. One of my tutors said to get in the photos otherwise it could be anyone there at the event and not me so…there we go. I’m there too :p

I think we’re all looking at the viewfinder and not the camera haha.

Say hello πŸ™‚

Paul :p

Loving CJ’s Bender hat

On the bus back to the hotel

Reception-bar area.

Room is quite nice. Loving the air conditioning as it’s been boiling outside.

    Very nice!

    Have fun πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, it’s a lot of fun so far. Will try to get some sleep for tomorrow haha.

      • dss

        ya… Nokia is going to “torture” you for 6 hours so you need rest for sure!

        Any idea if they are broadcasting the event online ?

      • sunnyvale

        JAY! Wish you the best. Honestly , I’m surprised you would be the one to represent us in the London event, that’s why I asked who was going to cover.

        Have a good rest, you’ll need it if Jo Harlow is going to be one of the speakers.

        • Thanks πŸ™‚

          Yup, first Nokia launch event in a while. Managed to wiggle some room between uni (though i’m back early so won’t be there for Q&A).

          Haha, we’ll have some words of pointers with Ms Harlow if need be :p

        • incognito

          Better an hour of sleep during a Jo Harlow’s presentation than no sleep at all πŸ˜‰

          • Andrew_b

            For sure, Jo Harlow has to be the dullest there is. I hope that Nokia have had the good sense to ditch her for live presentations.

            You could build a MyDreamNokia based on the wishlist from Nokia’s maddest fans and she would kill it dead with her boring style of presentation. She just doesn’t get it.

            And for London can we have Nokia please NOT No-key-ah, grrr.

            • incognito

              When I wrote this I really didn’t expect them to put her to announce the Lumia 925… Luckily, the device is quite meh so she didn’t do any real damage, but still…

              Some people are just not good at presenting and that’s a fact. Those people might be brilliant otherwise but just don’t put them on a stage, period! Will Nokia ever learn?

  • buzzonme

    goodluck to all πŸ˜€

  • Vidar

    When exactly tomorrow will the launch begin?

    • 10am, London time AFAIK.

      • sunnyvale

        Harangue, what’s the London time in UTC?

  • shallow ocean shoal

    The picture on the bus needs a guy with a Mike Tyson maori face tattoo and a monkey

    (this is not an ad for Part III but Part II crossed my mind looking at these)

  • shallow ocean shoal

    Oh and PS whatever this sht is tomorrow better get announced for tmobile or I’m going to go buy a samsung and install jolla on it just to fck with you guys!

  • Deaconclgi

    Blasted finals getting in the way!!! I should have been there!!!! Have fun Jay and friends! πŸ™‚

    • Shame πŸ™

      Lots seem to have exams around this time. I just finished one of mine so lucky to get there. Danni went off early this evening to revise for her exams in the morning! Crickey :p

      • Deaconclgi

        Yeah, hectic time of year for studies. I am taking 3 classes right now AND working full-time. NEVER again!!!!!! So much work, so little time. I’ll be taking the summer off and then resuming with a lighter load with maybe just one class at a time. Lesson learned.

        • torpedu

          hah, I’m in the same exact situation. What part of Illinois are you from ?

        • Another wretched student checking in, actually got an exam DURING the launch.

          • sunnyvale

            Almost all of MNB bloggers in a single thread. Truly a sight to see. The only ones left to post here are Harangue, Michael, Andre, nexus, Prashant, and whoever else I forgot now.

          • Sefriol

            Same for me. Well. At least I can keep for an hour before my tests starts.
            Problem Solving with Algorithms and Data Structures.. fuck yeah..

            • Sefriol

              up to date for an hour*

  • Mendax

    I’ll bet none of your med school buddies are having this much fun right now, Jay.

    Enjoy and ask lots of questions! πŸ˜€

  • Michael Faro-Tusino

    Red shoes with laces are yours, fat tounged Nike are CJs, one is Paul’s and the other Mark’s?

    • BINGO! πŸ˜€

      • Michael Faro-Tusino

        Seriously! What a good guess. I only knew you and CJ for sure. Hahah

  • javid

    looks like a LOT of fun πŸ™‚
    Enjoy – but not too much – we want details in the morning! πŸ™‚
    Looking forward to this – I’ll have to get up extra early like i did last week for the Asha launch – that was early for me 1am!
    Tomorrow only 345am:)
    Yes, a texan here!

    • Deaconclgi

      Illinois here. Sadly…I’ll probably sleep through it and come in at 300 comments late. Super tired… πŸ™

      • javid

        that’s why I am in bed early too πŸ™‚
