Alphaland Southgate, 6th floor, The tent - I attended a Nokia PH event yesterday (thanks to Mark of TechPinas and Nikka of Nokia PH). That was my first time to attend a media launch so I'm kinda no idea on what's going to happen nor who will be going to that event also.
The event started around past 12pm so before that, I was able to talk to some Nokia folks (Mrs Corrine, mrs cause she said she's married) and they provided me information on their partnership with our local brands - they created widgets for nokia phones- such as munchpunch, fully booked, UAAP, clickthecity, Solar TV etc (Can't remember the other brands, sorry for that. I just put everything on my brain, no notes haha). Well anyway, what's exciting is that the partnership with Solar TV's watchnow brings us "How I met your mother" and "Gossip Girl" on demand , delayed telecast.
demand , delayed telecast? It's just my term, :P but what i mean is that for example How I met your mother's new episodes shows to cable tv's at weds night at 8pm, the new episode will be updated on nokia devices after an hour or two, and will be available for a week until the new episode comes up.

Mrs Corrine also talked about the future of nokia ph when it comes to development. They're exploring on possible contests to developers and support to students. (And I can't mention them here cause they're not yet final but i will keep everyone posted for any update).
I told Mrs Corrine to skip the hardware cause I know them already :P
Food is great but I only ate few desserts, didn't bother to try the main course meals (maybe Mark can provide more info about this one - he's eating while taking a video haha dont tell mark about this post :P) cause I'm still full from my super late brunch (did I mention that I came from the office before going to this place? haha. I'm screwed, i haven't sent any updates before leaving damn).

After that, some information about nokia and their devices are presented by Mrs Nikka and the other guy on white polo ( i dont know the name sorry..). They also gave the prize to the contest winners, 1st prize is 10000 worth of GC, forgot the runner up prize. They also gave 4 phones from the raffle coupons we submitted during the registration. Unfortunately, I'm not wone of the winners :( I really sucked with raffle contests, even before! haha. Phones given are C3, ?, N900 and N8.
Anyhow, I'm a winner in a certain way, I got new friends. Mark from Techpinas.com and Jade from symbianworld.org. Nice meeting you guys.
