Nokia Unveils Lumia 920 and 820 in Ghana

           Mobile phone manufacturer, Nokia yesterday unveiled its most anticipated Windows Phone 8 devices, the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820 in Ghana.  The phones are widely regarded as the world’s most innovative smartphones, and have generated buzz all over the world, including leading tech blogs and media reports.

                          The devices were launched in partnership with leading Software maker, Microsoft and telecommunications giant, MTN at the Silverbird Cinemas, Accra Mall. Those who place orders for the Nokia Lumia 920 will enjoy 1GB data, 200 minutes and 400 SMS free each month for 3 months on the widest network in Ghana, MTN.

                          According to Nokia, the devices, which come in a variety of colors, are poised to give customers the best smart phone experience ever with their unique features, including an inbuilt wireless charging system, Nokia’s new PureMotion HD Plus display with a 1280 x 768 resolution, Nokia Maps and Nokia City Lens, which is a unique augmented reality app that helps users locate places by just holding up their devices- Awesome!

                       The Lumia 920 also comes with the latest innovations in PureView imaging technology. This includes advanced floating lens technology that takes in five times more light than other smart phones enabling users to capture sharp, crisp pictures and videos even indoors and at night, without using flash.  This is complemented by Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), a first of its kind feature, which prevents pictures and videos from blurring when users are on the move.

“Nokia City Lens”

                       Vice President, Nokia West Africa, James Rutherfoord said the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820 are ready for business with a full Business suite right out of the box, comprising Microsoft Office suite, Sky Drive and Microsoft Lync. He explained that Nokia aims at satisfying the needs of business and non-business smartphone owners with its current and future range of Lumia devices. “These are the best devices we have made in the smartphone category and we believe that this is going be much appreciated by our customers. At Nokia, our focus is to bring the very best of technology to our customers which aid, excite and benefit their work and social lives,” he said. “With the groundbreaking technology incorporated in these devices, we are giving our consumers every reason to switch to Lumia.”

Meet Dwain Lucktung- as Promised!

I had observed him with keen interest in the last days of the Mali Youth Summit as he updated the world on what was happening at Bamako. I couldn’t help but ask for some time with him to coach me on blogging. I interrupted his swim time with the rest of the team and I couldn’t believe he was sitting next to me, equipping me with tips to successful blogging, Dwain Lucktung is he.

Ghanabakwamena and Dwain Pose for a shot!

A close look at his blog bio will get you thinking- Really? But YEAH! Dwain is a 24/7 hustler- believe it or not…lols! He mentioned that was the truth- I admire his sincerity, makes me wanna admit I’m err mm …hahahahaha! Dwain stated a person must know what he/she stood for when blogging. I wasn’t surprised when he asked “What do you blog about?” I replied, “…mostly Issues from my world of advocacy & activism, Nokia and interesting stuff I come across…” he liked it and advised I remain focused, also “…give your readers a reason to keep coming back for more.” The truth is- Dwain attempted to give me a hands-on experience but the Link at Hotel Massaley, Bamako wouldn’t permit because it wasn’t functional- a piece of advice to the hotel: “PLEASE CHECK IT & FIX THE PROBLEM”, the link back at the main arena for the event was soooo sssssloooooow it took ages for many participants to connect with the rest of the world most of the time.

Dwain shared lots of Vital FREE Information with me, from; Starting and sustaining a Blog, types of blogs, Tittle and Content, How to share links and get your blog read, hyperlinking, pictures, through to- Design of your Blog esp. colours, comments, updating you blog as often as possible- at least two or three times a month etc. oh!, and Hashtags. Talk of tags- I have Dwain’s Summit Tag, he was outta Mali before I could return it- I’m keeping it- at least I have something that reminds me of one of my favourite bloggers and mentor! Whaaaaat? I couldn’t believe my ears when he mentioned he was still learning to be a better blogger.

He advised I read a lot- especially other blogs. I check his blog out whenever I get online- wanna know what Dwain just posted? Click here: D-W-A-I-N . Dwain got me falling in love with blogging all over again and stirred up some fire… so sad my laptop wasn’t around- you would have read this item long before 21st May…hehehehehehe! Never mind- we’re glad all is well.  I have, within this short period of time- grown to appreciate the efforts of all bloggers around the world in their bid to inform their readers on happenings around the world! “…I’m ma Blog-blog-blog no matter what!”

Coded Message Spotted in Bob Marley’s Song! #Africa Unite

Mighty Africa  I didn’t first notice it myself until i re-played the son to my hearing and re-visited the lyrics online and found what it contained. Just like the InstantMediaGH‘s post on Ghana’s Anthem, one will realize that Bob Marley too had foresight – similar to Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah of blessed memory’s.

 

” Ziya-po ya-ya, pa-pa-ya-pa!
Ti-da-lee, na po-po pu-du-loo!
Ste-na-peh na-na po po-ro po!
Africa unite:
‘Cause we’re moving right out of Babylon,
And we’re going to our Father’s land, yea-ea.

How good and how pleasant it would be before God and man, yea-eah! –
To see the unification of all Africans, yeah! –
As it’s been said a’ready, let it be done, yeah!
We are the children of the Rastaman;
We are the children of the Iyaman.

So-o, Africa unite:
‘Cause the children (Africa unite) wanna come home.
Africa unite:
‘Cause we’re moving right out of Babylon, yea,
And we’re grooving to our Father’s land, yea-ea.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/b/bob+marley/africa+unite_20021776.html ]
How good and how pleasant it would be before God and man
To see the unification of all Rastaman, yeah.
As it’s been said a’ready, let it be done!
I tell you who we are under the sun:
We are the children of the Rastaman;
We are the children of the Iyaman.

So-o: Africa unite,
Afri – Africa unite, yeah!
Unite for the benefit (Africa unite) for the benefit of your people!
Unite for it’s later (Africa unite) than you think!
Unite for the benefit (Africa unite) of my children!
Unite for it’s later (Africa uniting) than you think!
Africa awaits (Africa unite) it’s creators!
Africa awaiting (Africa uniting) it’s Creator!
Africa, you’re my (Africa unite) forefather cornerstone!
Unite for the Africans (Africa uniting) abroad!
Unite for the Africans (Africa unite) a yard!”

It’s unfortunate we have failed to make some meaning and realization of what our great and forefathers have given us. Unity is indeed key in moving Africa forward- but, How? many still ask…

. But provided above are the messages carried in the song. Do you think there is truly a hidden message in this music? would love to hear from you on that… Enjoy!
