As you may have noticed in previous posts this week, I recently had the good fortune to take part in a fun and interesting Nokia-planned event, designed to introduce several of us geeky, mobile, tech blogger types to the recently launched Nokia E73 Mode smartphone (think Business “mode” and pleasure “mode”). The event was relatively short, the 4 bloggers showing up at the beach house on Friday evening and departing Sunday mid-morning – that gave us about 36 hours of fun and down-to-business time with the devices. In typical WOM event fashion, much of the focus here was on having a group of mobile geeks get together and discuss the device, mobile technology, and basic mobile geekness!
We were locked up (not really) in an ocean front beach house, each provided with our own E73 Mode, fed delicious food at regularly scheduled interviews, and given access to all the coffee, Red Bull, and alcohol that we needed (and yes, we were all very well behaved ;0). I couldn’t help feeling somewhat like Mike, the Situation, from Jersey Shore as I wandered the beach house and thought about the environment – all that was missing was Snookie, a hot tub, and a few grenades!!
