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.
Bluelounge Kicks is a small, thin, silicone-rubber rails that prevent your iPad from slipping, scratching and damage. Once it is applied, you can lean your iPad 2 against the edge of your table while you rest the iPad on your lap.
The rubber rails provide a better grip against the edge of the table and hence providing you a fix and stable position while you read you ebooks or surf the Internet on your iPad.
Woke up the same time despite being the last day before I fly back to Singapore by British Airways (Flight BA011). We checked out the hotel at 9am and thanks to the guys at 1000heads, they help us brought our luggage all the way to their office while we go around sightseeing!
The first stop was London Eye, but instead of seeing it from the outside, this time we really went into it. The queue was still insanely long, but luckily the guys at 1000heads managed to get the fast track tickets!
Nokia World Day 2 starts at 9am as well and the opening keynote was given by Colin Giles, Executive Vice President of Sales.
Since this is the second and last day of Nokia World 2011 and nothing new will be announced, the crowd was a little lesser and we are able to take more pictures of the product and hence this post has more pictures than words!
Woke up at 7.30am and met up with the rest of the bloggers for breakfast at 8am at the hotel’s lobby before heading to ExCeL London for the opening Keynote by Stephen Elop. Nokia World 2011 is held at ExCeL London which is about 5 minutes walk from our hotel.
We reached there just in time for the keynote and boy it is crowded!
I was one of the very lucky bloggers whom got invited to fly to London to attend Nokia World 2011, thanks to Nokia Connects & Nokia! There will be 4 blog posts spread throughout this week dedicated to Nokia World 2011, the pre event, day 01, day 02 and post event.
I flew by British Airways (BA012). It is the longest flight I ever taken (13 hours) and I will get to experience jet lag due to the 7 hours time difference in London. My flight departs Singapore at 10.50pm and I arrived at London at 5.05am. I was lucky that the flight I am on was pretty empty so I manage to occupy 4 seats, lifted the armrest and sleep horizontally!
