A random Monday. (Contests, Mobile TV, etc)

November 13, 2006 in Wireless Industry News

I’m not sure how closely people are following the going-ons in the video game world, but Sony just cut the numbers of Playstation 3 consoles coming to the US. Making it damn near impossible to score one online now. Sorry, this has absolutely nothing to do with anything Nokia but it is the biggest news so far!

Nokia USA has a new Nokia N80 contest available. Basically, you take a survey (total of five questions) for a chance to win one of five Nokia N80s. It seems like the goal of this whole quiz/survey thing is to draw customers’ attention to the new Nokia support site, while at the same time getting valuable customer feedback (but not from me, since I tend to give out fairly useless answers to the questions).

A Nokia sponsored survey called “This Box Was Made For Walking” (Jessica Simpson anyone?) was released a couple of days ago. Some of the main points of this little report were:

*User generated content such as those on YouTube is going to be huge.
*Companies are experimenting with 5-7 second ad spots to determine the optimal of time it will take for a message to sink in to a viewer.
*Made for normal TV episodes will be shortened for mobile devices. No brainer I guess.
*A midday prime time will come about, since people are taking time off from doing actual work and instead watching tv on their cell phones.

It’s too bad Mobile TV still has a long way to go in the USA.
