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!

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

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.

Thanks to Nokia & Nokia Connects, I had the privilege to attend Mobile World Congress 2012 (MWC 2012) (27th February 2012 – 1st March 2012) which is held in Barcelona, Spain.

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.

Got the Garmin Nuvi 1390LMT (Amazon Link) from RadioShack (938 Market Street, San Francisco). Is hard to find electronics store around San Francisco and RadioShack is the nearest to my hotel (Chancellor Hotel!

The guy who attended to me was super helpful (I think in US, the service is generally good) and he recommended me the Garmin Nuvi 1390LMT as it comes with Lifetime Map Updates and Lifetime Traffic.

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!
