With an ever increasing array of tech devices to keep the world entertained and connected, Nokia Nseries is looking for Australia's next 'techsetter' to lead the way. Budding tech boys and tech girls are wanted to fill the Nokia Nseries Digital Playzone space at the Taylor Square event between 16 and 18 November. The space is the ultimate playground for lovers of tech and entertainment and is full of cutting edge gadgets.
Four finalists will be chosen by the Nokia Nseries Digital Playzone judges - each one of them an entertainment industry expert. ARIA nominated Aussie rock band, Expatriate, editor of IGN AU, Bennett Ring and up and coming Australian filmmaker and past Tropfest runner up, Elissa Down, make up the panel. If you make the cut, you'll be entering the Nokia Nseries Digital Playzone - a completely contained environment designed to engage all your senses where, for three days, you're tech savvyness will be put to the ultimate test.
If you're a finalist 'techsetter', you could be asked to use the Nokia N81 and your wits alone to produce a list of the worst songs ever or record a short film in the environment around the Nokia Nseries Digital Playzone or take on one of your fellow 'techsetters' in a new N-Gage game. Judges will then separate the wannabes from the real thing, until the final day when the winner is crowned Australia's ultimate 'techsetter'.
"You can't go anywhere now without seeing people hooked in to their mobile devices - playing music, games, videos, connecting to the internet. Tech is a serious deal in everyone's lives now," says Ben King from ARIA nominated Aussie rock band, Expatriate. Ben King adds, "The Nokia Nseries Digital Playzone is giving people an avenue to show off how connected the really are."
Adam Johnson, Multimedia Marketing Manager, Nokia Australia says, "The convergence trend continues, showing people really do want a number of high tech devices rolled into one, and one that performs equally as well, if not better, than its single purpose counterparts. The Nokia Nseries Digital Playzone, along with the Nokia N81, gives us the chance to show people how things like music, gaming and video can all be experienced on a converged mobile entertainment device, and it's here now."
