FAVOURITES THOMAS KOTHUIS, EVP of strategy and biz dev, Blinck Which phone do you currently own? Nokia E71. What’s the best phone you’ve ever had? My first Nokia Communicator, definitely. Wouldn't want a brick like that in my pocket these days though.
Nokia runtime environment
What phone would you like next? N97. Keyboard – difficult to do without.
For the second year ‘running’ Nokia supported the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon in London. Nokia execs lined up alongside model Nell McAndrew, who ran a personal best time of one hour 20 minutes. Her race was monitored by the Nokia Sports Tracker GPS app. Nell’s pictured with ‘ultra-athlete’ Jackson Williams, plus Nokia’s Pekka Rantal and Will Harris.
Current ringtone? Cagney & Lacey theme. Wallpaper? The Petronas Twin Towers on New Year's Eve. Favourite mobile game? Texas Hold’em Poker, I have to admit. Favourite mobile internet sites? Dutch newspaper sites and Facebook.
The grand dame of mobile porn, Julia Dimambro, has found a sideline. She’s taken time out from getting footjob videos on to operator decks to pursue a singing career. She’s working with ex Private exec Giles Hirst on an album called Seduction. It won’t surprise you to learn that Jules has a superb deep voice with a hint of filth. Dirty cow. Check it out at www.ondagroove.com
What new service would you like to see on mobile? A version of buienradar.nl for updates on rainfall. Useful for cyclists.
Radical name change for Movidia
iPhone uplift In tech, every fresh innovation will eventually work in the service of titillation. Example? Recent figures showed Ocarina was the iPhone’s most loved app – it’s the one that lets you blow the screen to play ethereal flute music. Now, that basic idea has re-surfaced in iBlushBabes. But here you exhale to lift a girl’s skirt. Men, eh? Pathetic. But also a kind of commercial genius.
When a company wants to reinvent itself, sometimes only a name change will do. It’s a radical step. Costs a lot, means even more. One can only stand back and admire the mobile video specialist, Movidia, when it concluded it needed a ‘more distinctive presence in the mobile handset sector’. The new name: Movidius.
Which content company do you most admire? Fun Little Movies and GorillaBox. Worst idea you've seen in mobile? DRM.
