Keep that N95 safe with the Nokia wrist band

A rather odd find but nonetheless quite cool.. Nokia has a product for sale called the wrist band. Simply put, its a sports band type of garment that is designed to keep your smartphone safe and in place while you work out! Going for a jog... simply slide on the wrist band and tuck your Nokia N95 safely inside... ok ,you could put your iPhone in there instead but that would be a bit hypocritical wouldn't it?? Thanks to Phil over at the S60 blogs for the heads-up on this one!

The Tech traveler - why not the Nokia N95

I noticed an article in USA Today the other day and it chronicled the journey of tech savvy travelers and discussed the technologies used. The techies used the notebook, blackberry, iPod, a 3G wireless router for sharing Wi-Fi and took advantage of wireless resources, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and other enabling technologies. All these gadgets were used to enable quick check-in at the airport and hotels, mapping and routing, reservations, and the all important entertainment. Inside I was laughing because I had to ask myself why on earth would such a tech-savvy professional tote all these gadgets around when one simple device - The Nokia N95 - could accomplish everything and more! LOL
