It’s been a massive 7 days in my little world and it’s just been trumped by today’s HUGE news from Nokia.
Let’s deal with the big boys stuff first… Nokia is stopping development of in-house operating systems and will be using Micosoft Windows as the basis for future phones. Alongside this Nokia’s Ovi will be merged into Microsoft’s marketplace. This is a massive statement by Nokia about future intent but it also represents a big turning point in mobile, as the web boys of Google & Microsoft have made their mark in mobile. Apart from Apple, who are now ‘a mobile device company’ – quote Steve Jobs, the web boys will have their operating systems in most of the phones of our future.
At last convergence, which is a great thing for all of us as consumers, as we will start to see even better consumer experiences through out phones.
Now back to my little world of mobile….
Well it all started last Friday with those lovely people at Ministry of Sound . Myself and Mark Harris were kindly given Access All Areas by Gary Smart and Michael Yardy at MoS to see one of our Flowd DJ’s Markus Schulz perform on his birthday. He’s a really nice approachable guy and he helped us give out Flowd.com t-shirts to the happy clubbing crowd – you can see pics & videos of him in action here
On Wednesday night we went to SoundCloud to talk Flowd with artists, DJ’s, artist mgrs and social media agencies, at the feet of Tim Exile who performed live.
Thanks to David Adams and the rest of the SoundCloud team for hosting the first of no doubt many London meetups.
time for a rest this weekend methinks, to recharge me and the mobile!
BUT If you feel like clubbin – see if this helps set you up for the weekend…
