I’ve been in and out of meetings today and I’ve been taking the temperature of the UK tech marketplace at each one.
I’m surprised at the level of excitement brewing. Expectations are running high. Nokia has done a super job of setting expectations with the odd reveal now-and-again across the last few months.
The tech geeks I’ve been speaking to recently are positively fizzing. One meeting I had was interrupted whilst a chap spent two minutes showing the room off a video of combined clips of the “N800”. He was obsessed with it. Truly delighted at the prospect.
Interestingly, there’s been no talk of the operating system beyond a positive nod. The hardware has obviously been getting a lot of attention but without the usual “but, er, it will be running on Symbian” negativity.
I wonder if Nokia and Microsoft have got a sizzler on their hands?
All will be revealed officially on Wednesday when Nokia World begins.
In the meantime I’m going to try and find that video for you and see what you make of it.
Are you looking forward to seeing what Nokia has cooked up for us?
