In this morning's opening remarks and keynote sessions, Olli-Pekka Kallasvio introduced the theme for Nokia World and the primary driver of Nokia's: To translate the internet into *your* internet. This means not only enabling customization of sites or content, but of course literally getting any information *you* need to live your life directly into your pocket.
Phrased differently, Nokia wants to put in your hand the power to be more in tune to the world around you.
This week, I join my colleagues Ben Gray, Chris Silva, Simon Yates and Jaap Favier in Barcelona at Nokia World 2008. The event is Nokia's annual showcase to announce new products, demo existing capabilities, and share innovations in mobillity to clients, partners, media, and industry analysts.
Nokia's brand tagline is perfectly summarized in the announcements made this morning at Nokia World in Barcelona.
- launch of Nokia Messaging. The offering will launch in Q1 2009 mainly in developing countries and on S60 solutions. However, support for S40 is expected in second half of 2009. The challenge here will be to offer a really seamless integration/synchronization with existing brands and solutions (Yahoo! Mail and Messenger, Windows Live, Hotmail, Gmail, Google Talk, AOL Mail and thousands of ISPs).
