Tues 03.22.11 – The first full day of the Nokia CTIA adventure started with a breakfast meeting with the Nokia Astound / C7 team leaders and the CTIA Social Reporters (aka blogger type humans). We had a lively discussion about the Nokia Astound, its specifications, the aesthetics (I think it is lovely), and its market. I will write more on the Astound later, but it is truly a great smartphone in that not only is it full powered, lovely, elegant, takes good photos, and it will only be $79 with a contract on T-Mobile.
After the breakfast meeting, we, the blogger type humans, had an Ovi Maps Check In challenge before going over to the Orlando Convention Center for the CTIA Trade Show. The Convention Center was truly awe inspiring in size, scope, and over all hugeness. The Trade Show had so many bells, whistles, loud sounds, flashing lights, etc, that I thought I would need dark shades and ear plugs. The only downside was a some bad news from the home front. In the evening, we met up for dinner and had a lovely evening.
