So I got an interesting email from Nokia’s WOM World the other day. I’ll let you read it in it’s entirety:
Would you like to join Nokia for a two week trip across the US next month demonstrating some of the capabilities of the Nokia N97? A bit of a random question I realise, but I’ve followed your stuff recently and think you’d be a great candidate for this project.
To give you some more background, I’m writing on behalf of Nokia to invite you to be one of four social media participants who’ll travel from LA, to San Francisco, to Chicago and finally New York testing the N97 to destruction (well, not quite!) and undertaking barcamp style events in 3 of the cities based around four themes that tie into the N97. What that would mean is leading the discussion on one of those themes in one of the cities based around a specific topic of your choosing. You’d then also support the other members of the team at their events. The trip will culminate in a Grand Finale event in New York.
It would obviously be a commitment on your part, but it should also be a lot of fun and a great chance to meet a load of new people, and really give your spin on a new device back to Nokia. If you are able to take part, we would need you to be available from the 7th-23rd July. If you’ve got any questions (as I’m sure you do!), or want to have a chat, just let me know and I’ll get back to you right away.
If this is something that interests you, either give me a call or email me back and we can set up a call to talk through it in more detail.
Look forward to hearing from you soon.

I’m still waiting for flights and such to be confirmed, but it does indeed look like this is happening. More on this as it develops — in the meantime, here’s a short video about the handset I’ll be testing:
