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.
The LunaTik Touch Pen was the 6th project I backed on Kickstarter. Backed the project last year on 14th December 2011, it became officially funded this year on the 10th February 2012 after raising US$309,183 (the goal was only US$75,000).
After some delays, I finally received the product last week on the 10th July 2012. Paid US$30 for it and an extra US$20 for the shipping to Singapore which adds up to US$50 (S$63.20) in total.
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.
The Sensu Artist Brush & Stylus was the 5th project I backed on Kickstarter, I backed it because I find the capacitive brush stylus interesting and I have not seen any stylus like that in the market before. The Sensu Artist Brush & Stylus consists of 2 tips, which is the brush tip and the rubber tip located at the opposite end of the stylus.
Backed the project on 22nd September 2011, it became officially funded on 21st October 2011 after raising US$65,823 (the goal was only US$7,500). The Sensu Artist Brush & Stylus was about 5 months in the making and I received the product on the 11th April 2012.
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.
