Shopping in Jungceylon, Nokia still very noticeable
Jungceylon shopping Mall
Quick post with a few photo's of a very thin TV and some Nokia Phones
Just thought I'd post a brief few words and photo's about my shopping trip in Patong, the intention was to buy a handbag for my daughter, the actual result was I wandered round the second floor for about and hour looking at tech !!
One thing I have noticed here in Thailand is that Nokia still has a very strong presence, I don't know if that is factual, or just my prejudiced view, but certainly may stores sell Nokia, and one of the store holders were quite impressed when they saw both my E7 and N9 when out shopping, and almost all the staff at my hotel, as well as the owner, Keith, all seem to use Nokia's ! I've only seen the N9 advertised in BKK, but have seen a few X7's and E5's that people have been using and most people seem to use Nokia feature phones. Samsung also seem to be very strong, but other manufacturers don't, at least from the trips I've taken don't have a massive presence, although there appear to be a huge number of obscure handsets resembling the iPhone :) I did see a couple of Apple stands, and MacBooks started at about 39,000 baht £850'ish
This isn't any sort of a review, just a few comments and photo's I took on my N9 whilst wandering about, so here they are, including a few shots of the streets around the centre.
