Live from the Nokia E-Series Event

Right now I’m sat on the 29th floor of a building over-looking the Thames… A very snazzy venue for a Nokia E-Series launch. I’m with the WOM World team (Nokia’s blogger relations guys), Jon Jensen and Rafe and Steve from AllAboutSymbian, but am mostly surrounded by mainstream media. As you’d expect with an E-Series event […]

Popped into the launch event this evening. Thanks to Alex and the team from Aliph for laying on a top night – ‘New Young Pony Club‘ were about to DJ as I made an exit… no reflection of their prowess, but it is a school night 🙂 The headset’s about half the size of the […]
