Garmin Nuvi 1390LMT

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

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.

Nokia World 2011 – Post Event

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 2011 – Day 02

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!

Nokia World 2011 – Pre Event

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!

Power Support Smart Pen

Bought the Power Support Smart Pen for Li Xiang from Challenger for S$39.90. There are 4 colors available, Pink, Black, Brushed and Stainless. I got the Brushed one.

It is made in Korea and felt pretty solid in my hands. I will not be using it because I don’t or rather I can’t draw on my iPad. I think it is suited more for designers as they can draw better with a stylus than their fingers on an iPad. You can’t control the thickness of the stroke though just by using the pen, if not that would be perfect!

She was the backer for LunaTik (US$50) alongside with the other 5,012 backers.
