Since we seem to having bandwidth issues already, I thought we’d (try and) show a side of the Nokia (HMD/Nokia Mobile) events that you won’t see a side of much.
We’ll aim to catch up on the phone related posts (which I have no doubt, you’ve seen copious amounts of cover as this was a global launch and everyone was having a frenzy over these new Nokias) afterwards.
The Nokia Party was at the same venue for the announcement and product hands on. They had food going around and the open bar on both areas of the party as well as Youngr performing on stage (currently on a tour). He was really, really good.
There was a small reunion of Nokia bloggers again, with @Nirave and @MarkGuim – obviously reminiscing Nokia times of old, which we all agreed, from the social media bubble side, could not have happened without the folks from 1000Heads/WOMWorld (and their subsequent name changes). Also present, Kris Canlon (Android Authority) and Maria (Axicom)
Can you spot who’s in this picture below? HMD President over in bottom left. Towards end of the party.
And the HMD CEO.
