Samsung TecTiles NFC Tags is just another brand of NFC tags, just like the NFC Tags by Tapway which I reviewed back in November 2012.
Yesterday, Samsung launches it’s first Samsung Mobile PIN in Singapore (the first in Asia as well). It is located at Ngee Ann City’s Civic Plaza or what is known as Takashimaya to many others. Samsung Mobile PIN was first launched at the London Olympics in 2012.
Samsung Mobile PIN is essentially a pop-up store that allows you to experience/play with all the latest Samsung devices. Currently they have the Samsung Galaxy S III (LTE), Samsung Note II (LTE), Samsung Galaxy Camera and the Samsung Note 10.1 (LTE) on display.
Always wanted to play with NFC tags to see how some tasks can be automated.
I am using iPhone 5 which does not comes with NFC capability, but for my work phone, I am using the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (LTE) which does come with NFC capability. Samsung has it’s own brand of NFC Tags called Samsung TecTiles, but unfortunately it will not be available in Singapore till mid-December 2012.
It will be retailing from Monday, 23rd July 2012 at selected Best Denki outlets for S$999. If you pre-order the Moverio at those selected outlets from today till 22nd July 2012, you will get a 16GB MicroSD card (worth S$18) and a pair of CX215 Sennheiser earphones (worth S$68.90) for free.
Before the summary, lets check out some of the videos that is filmed during Mobile World Congress 2012 by Nokia Connects featuring a skateboarder, free runner and BMX rider using the social features of the Nokia Lumia 900!
Nothing much happened on the 4th day which is the last day of MWC, I did not go down to the conference because I will be flying back to Singapore that day.
Woke up at about 9am and went down for breakfast and went back up to my hotel room after that to get my stuff packed. I have requested for my transport to come at 2pm despite my flight is at 6.30pm as I wanted to claim tax refund (18%) and shop at Barcelona Airport!
Day 03 starts off with the same format as day 02, which is a breakfast Q&A with the Nokia Maps team (Pino Bonetti & Mark Thomas).
Nokia Maps update will be out soon for Nokia Lumia devices which gives you greater zoomed-in details as well as the ability to create and share your favorite places via social networking sites.
Day 02 was slightly more relaxing, we have a breakfast Q&A with Dean Patrick from Nokia Entertainment at our hotel cafe at about 9am
Dean showcase the new Nokia Reading which of course as the name sounds, allow you to read and buy e-books/audio books on your Lumia devices. It will come to existing Lumia devices in April 2012.
The first day of MWC begins at 6am as the bus will be coming to pick us up at 7am from the hotel.
The Nokia booth is located in Hall 7 which is about 8 minutes walk from the main entrance. The press conference begins at 8.30am. We reached the MWC venue at 8am but the main press conference hall is already full! So they placed us in an “overflowing” hall which is just beside it. This also means we can’t see the press conference live and everything is projected out for us to see in the hall.
Took Lufthansa flight for the first time. There is no direct flight to Barcelona for Lufthansa and hence I took a flight (LH779) to Frankfurt, Germany and another flight (LH1124) from Frankfurt to Barcelona, Spain.
