Nokia Lumianation in the Philippines: The Grand Launch

Yesterday night was a very amazing night for me. Why? Because I was at the very awesome event that I've ever attended in my life! Nokia held their grand launch for the four Nokia Lumia devices at the Bonifacio High Street Central.

The event was attended by people from the traditional and online media, telecom partners and distributors, as well as some people that were luckily picked from Nokia's Facebook page. The venue was designed with colorful Lumia accents with tiles pattern.

The main highlight of the event was the super wowesome 4D projection, similar to what they did in UK. Take a look.

Sorry for the low quality video. I forgot to change the resolution to 720p. Anyway, Nokia took us back in time with a short recap of their long history of innovation dating from 1998. Windows Phone and Nokia Lumia features such as the People hub and Nokia Drive were also shown off at the 4D projection at the Amphitheater building.

Nokia also gave away several Lumia devices including a 900 at the attendees. I was literally 1 number close to winning a Lumia 610. Ha!

Back to the phones, the Nokia Lumia 900 will be coming out in June with the SRP off P27,990 which also comes with a Nokia Purity Headset by Monster. The most affordable Nokia Lumia, the Lumia 610 is now available at Nokia Stores for only P10,980; the Lumia 710 on Unlimited Data Plan 1000 from Smart; the Lumia 800 on Globe on their Unli Surf Combo Plan 1799 and also available at Nokia Stores for P23,500.

Fly All Over the Country for Free with Nokia Lumia
And to celebrate the launch of the Lumia devices, Nokia has teamed up with Microsoft and Philippine Airlines for the Nokia Lumia - PAL Promo where you can win unlimited PAL flights to the top local destinations in the country such as Legaspi, Kalibo, Cebu, Tagbilaran, Davao, and Puerto Princesa!

So there you go Nokia fans! Be a part of the Lumianation now!

Before I forgot, let me tell you that I spotted two Nokia 808 PureView at the event. First one is when I was being photographed, an unknown guy stood beside the photographer and also took a photo of me. My brother then whispered, "Kuya, yung ginamit na pang-picture sayo Nokia 808 PureView." The last one was when we're already leaving. Unfortunately I didn't had the chance to get a hands-on. Well, there's always next time.
