First hand information in Nokia World I wish to get,
I will share it on my blog to people haven’t known it yet.
Nokia World is the place a fan dreams to go,
and I am a big fan through and through, yo!
Nokia Headquarters I went by bus as a crazy fan,
I even took a picture of me holding a Nokia N8 in my hand!
Together with Nokia in June a Guinness World Record I set,
hope in October Nokia sends me to Nokia World 2011 in a jet.
Note: This post is specially coded (with image effect) to show how excited I am about Nokia World 2011. Images will appear by pointing your cursor to the links. By the way, the is the first poem of my life! :D
I finally received Nokia N9 yesterday and did a quick unboxing video shooting right after getting it. The unit I got is a Black 64GB Nokia N9 (Malaysia unit) and it comes with the basic accessories as follows :-
- 1 x rubber casing with the same colour matching the phone.
- 1 x microUSB cable for charging and data transfer.
- 1 x slim travel charger.
- 1 x Nokia earphone.
- A warranty card, a quick guide and a product manual.
Below are some product pictures of the sexy Nokia N9.
Google Mobile has released its latest Google Translate app for Android with a fascinating Conversation feature. The app is now able to translate spoken words into another language and speak the translated words back to the user. The Conversation mode currently supports 14 languages including English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Portuguese, Dutch, Russian, Czech, Turkish, Chinese (Mandarin), Japanese, Korean, and Polish. It is for sure a dream app for a travel lover like me!
It’s easy to use Google Translate in Conversation mode, just speak into your phone’s microphone and the app will translate what you’ve said and speak the translation out loud from the phone’s speaker. If there’s another person who is speaking the foreign language is beside you, the person can then reply in their language and Conversation Mode will translate what they said and read it back to you. Totally awesome!

There’s a golden egg in Angry Birds Seasons to unlock a secret Samsung Galaxy S II level. This special level was dedicated to only Samsung Galaxy S II user but I think it’s now available to Galaxy S users too as I managed to unlocked it on my Galaxy S. You may want to check it on your mobile if you have Angry Birds Seasons installed.

This secret level was used in the recent Asian Angry Birds Challenge. Details of the competition will be coming up in the next post. :)
Two weeks ago I was in Helsinki, Finland, as one of the finalists for Asian Angry Birds Challenge organized by Finnish Airlines Finnair and Rovio’s Angry Birds. Asian Angry Birds Challenge is a campaign to promote Finnair’s new route to Singapore and in conjunction with Angry Birds’s business strategy to focus in Asian markets. Anyway, I’ll leave the details and what was happening during the contest in the upcoming post because this post is all about Angry Birds! :D
A day before the Asian Angry Birds Challenge contest, we were invited to have an exclusive tour to Angry Birds Headquarters located in Espoo during the 2-day stay in Helsinki.
In this Angry Birds Headquarters tour, I got to meet some developers behind the famous Angry Birds game, hear the latest Angry Birds news and get the some insider information of Angry Birds future plans.
