Nokia promised something big with Angry Birds and they delivered! At the #NokiaConnects SXSW party in Austin, Texas they showed of a very slick Angry Birds video on a 20 storey building. The only adjectives I would use to describe it are awesome, wicked and super cool. Considering the size of the high-rise, half of Austin saw it. You should see it too.
I was fortunately there to see it happen and could record my own version on the N8, so if you want a different camera angle, here’s one.
This is where the N8’s video recording capabilities really shine, the ability to zoom in so much without loosing much quality is great for occasions such as these. The dual microphones also do justice to the 720P video.
If you are in Austin on the 15th, keep your eyes open for a repeat performance. This is something you should see in person.
As you can see from the trailer, Rovio Mobile, the makers of Angry Birds are clearly involved, but very little hints are given as to what is really going down at 9 PM on the 12th and 15th of this month. All we know is the date, time and the venue (The Belmont Stage) .
In other Nokia @ SXSW news, Nokia is also taking part in a panel on the future of social location along with Foursquare and Pepsi. I suspect, this is also where @NokiaResearch will demo the all new context based service ‘Nokia Find & Connect’ which will allow people to network without meeting face to face.
I am in Austin for SXSW and will be keeping you upto date with the latest, but you can also follow the #NokiaConnects hashtag on Twitter to track Nokia @ SXSW.
