With Nokia Connects at Mobile World Congress 2014 – Part 1

· · · Event, Gadget

Thanks to Nokia Connects (@Nokia_Connects) for the invite to Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014! This is my third trip to such a big event with Nokia Connects. The first was Nokia World 2011 in London and the second was Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona, Spain.

Our itinerary for this year MWC was shorter by a day. Despite it being shorter by a day, I find this year trip is more relaxing! We flew in on Sunday, 23rd February 2014 and flew back on Wednesday, 26th February 2014.

Nokia First Android Phones: Nokia X, Nokia X+ & Nokia XL

· · · Event, Mobile Phone

Nokia has launched their first family of phones running on Android (sort of) at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014.

The reason why I say “Android (sort of)” is because there is no Google Play services in the Nokia X family of phones, instead it is been replaced by Microsoft Services.

Moshi iVisor Glass Screen Protector for iPhone 5/5s

· · · Endorsement, Mobile Phone

Moshi iVisor Glass Screen Protector for iPhone 5/5s retailing for S$48.90 is a good alternative to the Spigen SGP GLAS.tR Nano Slim Screen Protector for iPhone 5/5c/5s and is slightly cheaper. It weighs only 10g and is bubble-proof, shock-proof and scratch-resistant.

I tried pasting it on my iPhone 5 and despite it was my first time applying screen protector (I usually get the mobile phone shops to do it for me), I managed to do it on the first try!

Thermodo – Thermometer for Mobile Devices

· · · Gadget

Thermodo is a tiny electrical thermometer that measures the temperature right where you are on your iPhone, iPad and Android devices. I don’t think Windows Phone support will be there since the stretch goal of US$400,00 (in order for Thermodo to come out with a Windows Phone app) was never met. You can download the Thermodo app on Apple App Store or Google Play.

I backed Thermodo on Kickstarter on the 7th March 2013 and it was funded successfully on 10th April 2013 after raising US$336,018 out of their initial goal of US$35,000.
