N97 24/7: The Stops

Okay, so from the links below it seems that the official title of the tour is “N97 24/7”. I’m going to keep using #n97usa as a hashtag on Twitter because non-alphanumeric characters in such things don’t seem to work…

There are pages already up for three of the four Nokia-sponsored events on BarCamp.org — here’s the brief:

Four bloggers have been selected to travel the country and test Nokia’s newest convergence device, the N97.  For two weeks, the group travels to LA, San Fran, Chicago and New York testing the device in real world applications and sharing their honest feedback in real-time via their blogs and other social networks.

Along the journey, they’ll spend a day in each city hosting a BarCamp to talk about their interest areas as they relate to technology and convergence.  Interest areas include: Content Creation, Content Consumption, Communication and Navigation.  We hope that this BarCamp will bring together a mix of people, who all have a passionate interest in one of these areas.
