N78, N82, N95, N96… Hut Hut!

The two phones at either end of this foursome were both unreleased when this photo was taken. I was at a Nokia community event and I spotted one of the Product Managers at the bar minding his own business. He and I had chatted the month before at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona (where the devices were announced) but no one else had recognised him.

I said hi and started grilling him about the new handsets; features, software etc… and he ‘just happened’ to have them both on him. Win.

No one outside of MWC had seen the handsets properly really, so I grabbed a couple of other phones and took a quick comparison shot. Which, via the wonders of ShoZu, I fired straight up to Flickr and BAM! Cue global nerdgasms… My own included.

That was two years ago. Today I work with Nokia and often get to play with (or at least see and discuss) the latest tech long before any kind of announcements, leaks or launches.

This photo makes me smile because it reminds me of the thrill and excitement I get when I encounter new mobile tech.

I am a geek. Through and through.

And I love it.
