O dia do iPhone 7


A pouca horas do lançamento do iPhone 7, aproveito para fazer um resumo do que fui escrevendo sobre o iPhone ao longo dos anos aqui no zone41:

Em Janeiro de 2007, o Jason Kottke brincava com um iPhone de cartão;
A 6 de Maio de 2008, ainda não era pública a informação que operadoras iriam comercializar o iPhone em Portugal;
E a 30 de Junho de 2008, ainda faltavam 11 dias para o lançamento do iPhone3G em Portugal;

E agora é esperar pelos novos headphones com tecnologia BT, e fazer figas para não os perder na próxima viagem de comboio!

A Nokia e os early adopters

Nokia Symbian3
Na imagem Nokia C6, C7, N8 e E7.

O que representa hoje a Nokia para os early adopters?

O Nokia N8 e o E7 s?o dois peda?os de telefone.
Disso a Nokia pode continuar a orgulhar-se na minha opini?o. A qualidade de constru??o e os materiais em equipamentos de gama alta
continua a ser uma coisa da qual n?o t?m abdicado.

Mas e o resto?

Mas a Nokia continua a criar espa?os para a criatividade, mas depois ? preciso coloca-la a tempo no mercado.

O video que se segue mostra o projecto PUSH.

Foursquare disponível na rede Vodafone em Portugal

OMG. My mom (@murieloliv) got me @foursquare badge cookies for my birthday!
Fotografia de Dennis Crowley.

Lisbon, 29 June 2010 Vodafone Portugal has established a partnership with Foursquare, one of the fastest growing social networks in the world, to offer its customers access to Foursquare on their mobile phones.

Talvez seja desta que o Foursquare dispare em termos de utilizadores em Portugal.
Há algum tempo que o venho utilizando, mas não tenho sentido grande crescimento na quantidade de sítios catalogados.
Com esta parceira com a Vodafone Portugal, de certeza que as coisas se vão alterar.

Será que o Pond vai evoluir para uma ferramenta deste tipo?
Têm tudo para poder ser mais do que um facilitador com as redes sociais.
