Bloggers Meet on the Eve of Nokia World

It's been a packed day in London on the eve of the Nokia World expo. About 10 of the bloggers who had already arrived in London had lunch with Lydia and Chris from 1000 Heads and then went for a quick look around central London before an afternoon meet up of bloggers hosted by 1000 Heads at their office which also happens to be where the old trainng ring Muhammad Ali used to train in. Around 60 bloggers, developers, Nokia and 1000 heads staff mingled and traded ideas over drinks and recorded personal videos to the new CEO of Nokia as to what we would like to see change with Nokia.

In the evening, we had drinks at the Lamb Tavern where Ovi presenters demonstrated what is coming up with the Nokia N8 and what to expect with the integrated apps suite for Nokia phones - Ovi. The vibe was, watch this space, meanwhile Nokia is listening to users such as you and me so share your feedback and concerns and they will be heard. Late registrations to Nokia World have also resulted in packed hotels all around Excel One where Nokia World goes live in just under 6 hours!

Some general observations from today
  • Biggest shock - Anssi Vanjoki, Executive Vice President of Nokia announces retirement. 
  • Most talked about upcoming phone - Nokia N8
  • Most mentioned message recorded by bloggers as to what they would like Nokia to change - Shorten the time between announcements and release dates for phones.
  • Most common phone seen in peoples hands today (Nokia managers, bloggers) - Nokia E72!
  • Highlight of the day - winning a Nokia N8 along with Roman from S60Inside and Mike from MobileFanatics, and meeting the 1000 Heads staff and bloggers.
