Sorry I haven’t been able to update on the go, but as the title suggests I’m at Helsinki Airport as I’m now on the journey back to UK after a fantastic and surreal re-visit of Finland. Kudos Nokia and Nokia Connects :). More on that on Monday.

Pretty speedy considering. I wish I had this speed at the hotel :p Not that there was much time spent there.

I was going to just tweet this picture but I thought it was nice to share on the blog that whilst waiting around,  I’ve got free WiFi, a power outlet for my wired charging mac  and areas for my wirelessly charging Nokia Lumia 920 :D

MNB WP_20130727_051Helsinki AirportAlso, on the instructions about wireless charging, you can get that wireless charging accessory for attachment on Micro-USB slots in case yours doesn’t charge wirelessly by default.

As I’m writing this a cute little Korean family walked up to the table intrigued about the wirelessly charging Lumia. The kids are well annoyed that their Galaxy Note (what’s a 6 year old doing with a note? – actually the older kid, about 8, also has a Note :/) won’t charge wirelessly.

    Glad to hear you had fun in Finland. Heading there myself next week for vacation. And who is that lovely lady on your homescreen? :)

    Come to think of it, nowadays, I’ve seen kids (I assume the ages between 8-12) own iPhones and high-end Samsung Galaxy phones in Malaysia. Some might say that more families are getting wealthier, but to buy them those phones at that age?

    And about Wireless Charging at Helsinki Airport, that’s cool. A good way to charge your phone while waiting for your flight. Even funnier that other people view your phone with envy, especially when no wireless dongle is needed. ;)

      My son has Series 40 feature phone with mobile data disabled from subscription. Same with my daughter. Ages 10 and 8.
      I may be old-fashioned but with all the free Wi-Fis available in our home town I would be crazy to get them Wi-Fi capable phone or a data plan so they could surf in the Internet without any adult supervision.
      Too much stuff in the web, I want them to be prepared to face the dark side of Internet before they go poke around wildly.

        Yeah, the internet can be considered the ‘Wild West’. Not sure how those parents who give their kids smartphones deal with this issue unless they are aware of it and blocked its online features.

        Note that only some parents buy smartphones for their kids from where I’m from (Malaysia). Most of the time they only pass their smartphones to their kids to play games on it.

      • Random Random

        Yes.

        I’m sure they can’t get to internet if you do that.

        I’m also sure that they are not going to think the internet as the forbidden fruit.

        • DesR85

          “I’m also sure that they are not going to think the internet as the forbidden fruit.”

          So does that mean that he should just let his kids access the internet without any adult supervision? Unless you want this (Link: http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2013/05/06) to happen to your kid.

          And as he said, he wants to prepare his kids before facing the dark side of the internet.

      When I was traveling in Singapore, I noticed almost everyone either had a Galaxy Note or an iPhone. There was really no other smartphone to be seen. I saw maybe a couple of Blackberrys and I only saw 1 other person with a Nokia (Lumia 920). I, of course, was sporting a Nokia (Lumia 820). Not that one should base the Asian market on what I saw in Singapore, but Nokia has some work to do!

      • jajai

        and Nokia Malaysia marketing strategy is kinda sucks. it’s hard to find even one ads about Lumia on TV and it’s good enough to see it few times on newspaper. i guess almost all Malaysians still think that Nokia is using symbian phone coz almost none of them know about Lumia. sigh

        p/s= many nokia stores in Malaysia have close due to bad sales

      • paul

        Also in the philippines. everyone was holding iphones and galaxies. for me nokia ph doesn’t really campaign and advertise the lumia how come that the asha 501 have commercial and the lumias don’t even have liftlets/catalog, billboards and commercials. In the ph samsung advertisements can almost civer the street names and malls because they’re so many of them. And frankly the sales persons know the wp but never do something to make it stand out.

      Well, my daughter is three and my son is just about to have his first birthday. They both enjoy playing games and drawing on our iPad. I don’t know what a Note (sure it was a Note, not some other cheap big-screened sammy?) costs in Korea, but I’m sure it won’t break the bank for a middle-class family…

  • http://www.facebook.com/dexzter.05 drexter

    you didnt take a pic of the korean family

    • DesR85

      I doubt anyone would appreciate some random person taking photos of them…

  • Hypnopottamus

    Jay,
    On a side note, when you came to New York for the Nokia event I remember you asking what the best option was for prepaid/no contract SIM cards. What did you guys end up doing? I’m curious. It might help me recommend when friends from outside the States decide to visit.

    • Hary

      The best option depends on the length of your visit.(US resident here)
      and where you are visiting.

      There is no single best option.

        When I was in the US last summer I got the At&t gophone plan, which was $2 a day for unlimited texts and calls, I think T-Mobile have a similar package which included Data (3G that capped to edge later).

  • Sefriol

    Korean Family must be Samsung’s spies! You should have executed them with your phone!

    On a serious note. Nice stuff.

  • Ronit

    Cool stuff. I was at Helsinki Airport in February and it didn’t have any of that then. Wifi was kickass though.

  • Boon

    Nice lockscreen wallpaper. Where can I get it?

    An interesting discussion is worth comment.
    I do believe that you ought to publish more on this issue, it might not be a
    taboo matter but usually people do not speak about
    these topics. To the next! Best wishes!!

    Valve also asks what are your top 5 dota 1 characters you like to
    play. With the increased Health and Cooldown Reduction you will be able to spam all of these abilities
    with the use of Mantra as well. What assists is the number of weapons and strategy, which is
    often, got making use of riots.

    Summoners that disconnect while CCed will now properly run back to base.
    If you have any questions, use the League of Legends forums.

    The premise of the game is to control one of many
    champions and fight your way past hordes of spawning troops
    (called creep), then advance past towers to destroy the enemy base.
