Live Qik Session N97 Tour Q+A and General Discussion

with one comment

Props to Andrew Currie for starting the first two rounds of live Qik sessions answering questions about the N97 Tour. Tomorrow at 11am EST, I will be hosting the second round on my newly received i8910 (with some pretty creative rigging since I don’t have a tripod). If you have questions about the tour, my recent N97 review, or anything else, hit up my Qik page tomorrow.

Qik.com/jbruha, live at 11am EST on 7/29

Update:

And it’s over! Thanks to everyone who showed up! It looks like we’re going to do several of these with each of the N97 24/7 Rockstars over the next week or so.

If you want to see what we talked about, you can check the embedded Qik videos after the break (Warning: It’s 6 parts and just under two hours).

Cumulative N97 Review: A month in the making

with 29 comments

I’m exceptionally surprised how much time I’ve spent with the N97 considering how set I was against not owning one. I bought a white one for $560 running v10, only to turn around and sell it for a decent profit a week later (the profit decidedly being much more important than dealing with the POS that it was on v10). Then instead of blindly comparing it to other devices I have never used, I picked myself up a used E90 and a pair of iPhone 3GS’s (the latter turning into even larger bits of profit once sold). Less than a week later, I received a call from Katie at WOM World for the opportunity to travel the country, beating the hell out of the N97 in each of the 4 cities we visited for the past 3 weeks. If there’s any group of people who thoroughly explored every single aspect of the N97, it would have to be the four of us. This is my experience.

N97 24/7 Finale Party at The Xchange

leave a comment »

I don’t think any of us knew what was in store for us at the party when we pulled up to the Xchange on Wednesday night. I stood outside waiting with our rockstars and rockstar sponsors alike, nervous and excited what we were about to behold.

While waiting in line, I had the pleasure of finally meeting my long-time forum buddy ArLe and Erick (gwapz), both HoFo veterans.

All of our concerns about delivering the content Smart Fusion and WOM World was looking for, our excitement from the people we had yet to meet, and the upset that it was about to all be over culminated into a ball of tension in my gut that I just couldn’t shake. Then suddenly, as soon as we walked in, that all washed away.

Attention Bloggers: Siobhan is a woman

with 5 comments

These are the three gorgeous women responsible for the N97 24/7 Tour that I was given the pleasure of being part. From left to right, Katie, Donna, and yes, the female Siobhan (pronounced “Sha-bon”).

If you’re trialing any devices for WOM World and use the terms “sir”, “dude”, or “man” in your emails to Siobhan, you owe her an apology. 🙂

N97 Tour: Final Day, draw by number 3

with one comment

For our last day in New York, I was committed to making sure the 24/7 numbers were complete across our last three cities. Accompanied by George, Siobhan, Donna, Katie, and Dan, we set out to finish the last of the Sports Tracker challenges. Since I wasn’t able to find an acceptable route to pair the “/” next to the “4” or the “7”, we instead decided to draw a European 7 over Manhattan. This one’s for you, Tom. 😉

You can also check out the route on my Sports Tracker page, here.

N97 Tour: Day 14, The Scavenger Hunt

with one comment

Orchestrated by MobileDan and the folks at WOM World, the Scavenger Hunt was our incredible challenge for Tuesday, doubling as a great opportunity to see New York. Using coordinates sent to us from DanDan and Katie from WOM World, each team was to use the Landmarks application in our N97s to find our destinations and use Nokia Maps to navigate ourselves there. George and I made up the first team, starting near Central Park and Andrew and Matt made up the second, starting in

N97 Tour: Day 13, Flight to New York

leave a comment »

Monday was our flight to New York that seemed to take all day, just as Andrew said. A mid-afternoon flight with breakfast, packing in the morning, and getting to and from the airports felt like an entire day was wasted just to travel.

Upon arriving at our hotel, the Shoreham, I was instantly impressed with the lobby and entrance, but seriously let down by the room. It was luxurious in its own way, but really emphasized the New York lifestyle with how small the space was.
