The N9 Seconds Contest Is Now Live: Interested In Winning A Nokia?

Remember yesterday’s 9 second Nokia N9 ads? Yes, the ones that are over if you decide to blink. Well there’s more to them than what meets the eye. Accompanying the ads is a brand new contest that can win you a Nokia smartphone, I’m guess a N9! Hit n9seconds.com and you’ll see the following screen awaiting a six character code.

The answer to this code it seems is hidden the videos, there’s 6 of them so I’m guessing each video gives you one character, fill them in and perhaps you’ll be the smart cookie who cracks this. There is also the following at the bottom of the page, more not so easy to understand hints.

Finally, there are 20 codes in total, only two of which have been unlocked so far. There’s also a @N9Seconds Twitter account that keeps track of codes that have been tried. The contest is open to everyone over the age of 15, worldwide. It closes once all 20 codes have been found or on 31.12.11 if no one’s able to crack it, but I won’t bet on it lasting for so long. If you want a N9, get cracking now.

Good luck!

The Nokia N9 Stars In The World’s Quickest Ads, 6 Ads In 60 Seconds

The Nokia YouTube page has just been updated, its all about the N9 now. But Nokia doesn’t believe in simple videos these days, remember the pretty cool interactive N8 unboxing? This time they’re bringing something new to the table, 6 ads in less that 60 seconds, making them perhaps the world’s Quickest ads.

Hit the page to see a set of 6 ads that run for about 9 seconds on average covering the N9’s design, camera, maps, social functionality, browser and its general awesomeness. You may be surprised how the message can be conveyed in such a short amount of time. Infact, it’d be great if all ads were like this, we’d save a lot time!

The idea behind the ads seems to be to show how the N9 can become an integral part of your life, yet be innocuous, letting you focus on what you’re doing rather than making the phone the center of your attention.

Its a fun watch!
