Urbanista Diaries is an extensive three-phase campaign that engages bloggers, journalists, and everyday people in ways that highlight the benefits of the Nokia N82. While the technology for this project is currently in beta, Nokia is partnering with several top media sites such as Wallpaper, Lonely Planet, National Geographic, and CNN to document major world events in real time. Reporters are given a Nokia N82 to snap photos, which get uploaded to the Internet and positioned on a stylized map-thus allowing people to follow their stories around the world.
Arto Joensuu, global e-marketing director at Nokia, said the "Urbanista Diaries offers the perfect platform for users to discover the potential of Nokia Nseries devices. Having real people demonstrating the Nokia N82 in real time brings us closer to our customer base. It's also a great illustration of how the multimedia computer enriches your Internet experience by bringing context and location-based information to your reach."
