The E72's 5 Mega Pixel

As an hobby, I love taking photographs and I have found the E72 very handy.
Especially with the quality of images you can get from a 5 Mega Pixel on a phone. This is another great feature of the E72.
Here are some of the pictures taken with the E72

Navigation with the E72

One great feature I have enjoyed in the Nokia E72 is the GPS + Nokia Maps. Its a free Global Navigation system
I have been navigation with the phone and realise you cant miss your way with it.
You can search for streets, roads and location. 
It can assist you in driving to a particular location by determining the best route to your destination.
The interesting part is if you decide to drive or walk using another route it automatically gives you an alternative route to your destination.

When driving with the map, it shows your speed, the time it will take to reach your destination,  the total distance and the distance to the next turn.

 It also shows the name of the street you are on and the street you are heading to.

A few weeks back, I was introduced to the WOMworld/Nokia program that allows you to have a two-week trial of some selected Nokia mobile phone by a blogger friend of mine. So I got the phone delivered this week.

The package was sent through  DHL

I'm loving the E72 so far. It has got great features and I will be doing a review of these features:

  • Compact QWERTY keyboard
  • Navigation system via Nokia Maps + GPS
  • Great performance,   4GB of memory card, Wifi, 3G
  • Excellent and long-lasting battery performance
  • Optical Navi Key™ 
  • High-quality images and video using the 5 megapixel digital camera
These are just some of the major features.

UPDATE: Thanks for the nomination and voting for my blog at the Nigerian Blog awards. It was an awesome experience.

...Dump site to Fame

I'm always inspired by stories of change. I watched a feature story on this particular guy who a few weeks back would not believe  he would be seen all over the world (BBC, YouTube, etc)and even have the opportunity to travel or even shoot his music video in  London.

Eric Obuh had been a scavenger and all he did was to source for scraps and sell them at the dump yard just to make a living. Along side he was a musician and also used the little money he got from the dump yard to support his music.
 ...every bit of scrap he finds brings him one step closer to his dream of launching his music career- BBC

His life had a new turn when he was featured on the controversial BBC documentary,  "Welcome to Lagos" in the first episode he was one of the major characters and he shared his experience on the dump yard. He also had the opportunity to share his music with  millions of people around the world. A rare opportunity many artists who have been in music for years do not have.

I  would be right if I say his story can be tagged "the dump site to fame". Its a story of change.
The documentary brought him to limelight and he is no more a scavenger. Although he was denied a UK visa for a concert on the 31st of May he still has hope of traveling sometimes in June.

PS:  I was not a fan of the Welcome to Lagos documentary. I believe there are better stories of Lagos which could be told, not just the slums, the dump sites or the shanties. This documentary could just be the single story of Lagos that would be told to people around the world.
If you have a story of change to share please foward it to naijaboyb@gmail.com i'll be glad to feature it on this blog. 

Voting for the Nigerian Blog awards is on till 6th of June. This blog was nominated for the Best New Blog category. Pls click here to vote. Thanks
