The Nokia Ovi Insider Night – an event was held last week, 12th November 2008 at Izzi’s Pizza, Damansara Uptown branch with the sole purpose of letting us bloggers have an insight on this new service from Nokia called OVI.
What is OVI?
With the introduction of Ovi, Nokia is expanding from a focus on mobile devices to offering a range of Internet services. Ovi, meaning ‘door’ in Finnish, enables consumers to easily access their existing social network, communities and content, as well as acting as a gateway to Nokia services.
Bloggers trickle in to Izzi’s Pizza, beating the rush hour traffic, made worse by the evening showers here over in Kuala Lumpur.
Those of us who arrived earlier took whatever that was on the offering table, of course some of us prefer to take pictures than taking food.
Nevertheless, how many pictures could one take before feeling the call of hunger? So there was I, seated comfortably at one end of the set tables, enjoying my soup, pizza, satay and whatever else I could get my hands on.
With my hunger satisfied, I was now ready for the rest of the event. We were introduced to Vlasta Berka, General Manager of Nokia Malaysia, he gave a welcoming speech before passing the show to Mr. Nelson Wee.
Nelson is the Head of Portfolio Management & Ovi, he came all the way from Singapore to introduce OVI to us.
Nelson was assisted by Mr. Stanley Gan, Software and Services Manager Nokia Malaysia. As the presentation also had live-demo of how OVI could work for you, like file and information sharing.
After the demo, we were also given hands-on session for getting registered with OVI and using it. Unfortunately, my N81 8GB is on an older firmware which I decided not to do anything with it yet, nevertheless I witnessed how it worked and I’m impressed, especially with the ability to access my PC via the Nokia units and even browsing and acquiring the files on the machine. 😀
Great huh? It’s like “ZOMG I FORGOT MY PRESENTATION FILE!!!?!??!” – Don’t worry, OVI IS HERE! ZZZZIIIIPP and you get the file with you already, now how cool is that?
Anyway, the evening ended with a closing speech from Vlasta.
