Thursday, July 9th, 2009

That right folks, your local fring Blogger has been invited to attend the much anticipated Nokia underground fusion extravaganza, to be held in Johannesburg on the 16th of July.  The event, press conference and cocktail party will celebrate the launch of 3 great new Nokia products:  The Nokia N97, N86 8MP and Ovi Store.

Attendance is by invitation only which means only a few privileged individuals will get in the door.  The good news for fringsters though is that I will be live blogging and tweeting from the event to give you the full benefit, feel free to follow me on twitter for live updates.   That said if any of the other invited attendees want to meet up with me at or after the event feel free to drop me a line [simon <AT> fring <DOT> com]

See you guys in Johannesburg.

fring welcomes the Nokia 5800 to the family

Wednesday, March 4th, 2009

fringsters everywhere have been asking for it and we are happy to say the day has arrived that we invite the ever popular totally sexy Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic aka Tube to the fring family.

And before we go any further, a big shout out and thanks to those fringsters who were part of the early access group – your feedback has helped us create a fantastic fringing experience, tailor-made for the 5800’s touch screen capability and cool new features.

As most of you probably already know the 5800 comes with “3.2-inch haptic touch-screen, 3.2-megapixel AF camera with dual-LED flash, VGA front camera, A-GPS, HDSPA, and up to 16GB of storage via microSD” the features are so good that some in the industry have gone as far as calling the 5800 XpressMusic the “iPhone killer“ and looking at the amount of requests we received for support, I’d say they were not that far off.

So what are you still waiting for, go get it quick and as usual please let us know what you think ;-)

Have fun

The fring team
