The Scobleizer was walking through San Francisco Airport and then ran into Reno Marioni, director of global social partnerships at Nokia. Scoble said Marioni had a secret device in his briefcase but wouldn’t show it to him. Scoble did end up looking at a Nokia N9, which he thought was, “damn nice.”
Scoble thought he was looking at a Nokia Windows phone, but a closer inspection of his Google+ photo reveals he was actually looking at a Nokia N9. He was shown the NFC capability, which lets you add data from all sorts of cards, stickers, or other physical objects.
Scoble has been really tough on Nokia lately, but said he, “might have to rethink Nokia’s chances.” I think Marioni forgot to tell Scoble that the Nokia N9 isn’t coming to the United States.
