MIR TV in Prague – Part One

We’re off to Prague, Czech Republic. We were surprised to find a dedicated Vertu shop just off the Old Town Square — and even more surprised to see it doing a brisk trade in 5,000 EURO handsets. So Ben popped in and asked if we could film… Here’s the video:

Over the weekend we headed to Prague to film the latest MIR TV show (it’ll be up and online soon) and took the Nokia N86 with us to give it a once-over. James got hold of it the other week and although he couldn’t join us in Prague, he was good enough to loan it […]

We’re going to Paris, Berlin, Munich, Barcelona, Marseille, Warsaw, Prague… And Glasgow

That’s the plan, anyway. Over the next few months I’m aiming taking the MIR Show crew to various cities across Europe to track what’s moving in the industry on a localised basis.

We’re taking Unlimited Drinks to Prague

What’s going on in mobile in the Czech Republic? We’re not entirely sure. Which is why we’re heading there in November. It’ll be cold. We might even get a bit of snow. We’re going to take the MIR Show Team — Dan Lane, Ben Smith and James Whatley — to Prague and have a wander […]
