Nokia Experts N900 meetup on 6 Nov in Tacoma, WA
This week Nokia held official N900 meetups around the world, including at the Chicago and New York Flagship stores. Unfortunately, there is no Flagship store here in the Seattle area so I was unable to attend, but I am going to bring a meetup to you here in Western Washington. Are you enjoying all my coverage of the Nokia N900? Would you like to touch and feel the device yourself? How about seeing a lineup of the Nokia N800 and N810, along with a few other Nokia devices like the N97, N96, N93, N81 8GB? Thanks to the folks at Nokia WOM World we are having a local meetup in Tacoma, Washington at the Round Table Pizza just off of I-5 between Tacoma and Lakewood on Friday, 6 November between 6:30 and 9:00 pm. I’ll give a demo of the N900 on a projector using the TV-out functionality on the device and then let people ask questions and enjoy the evening getting hands-on time with the device.
There was a similar grass-roots effort meetup held in San Francisco last night and hopefully we will see more of these around the country. The N900 really is a fantastic device and I like this eval unit so much I pre-ordered my own for $550 and can’t wait for the official launch when developers have had even more time to create applications and refine the experience.
FYI, Nokia is supporting the event so I will be having pizza and soda provided in the meeting room at the restaurant. Sorry, I’ve decided to skip the beer this time and keep this an alcohol-free venue so I can focus on sharing my devices and experiences rather than worrying about people drinking too much and testing the durability of my devices;) If you are planning to come to this local Tacoma-area meetup, please visit the Nokia Experts Facebook Group site and RSVP so I can figure out how many people may show up. If we get a crazy response we may have to limit attendees (there is room for 30), but we’ll see how much interest we have in the Tacoma area. I plan to use this Group to post photos of the event and share other details so please become a Nokia Experts Facebook Fan.
