All the gear I used at IBM Connect

I was traveling really light this year. At the end of the week, all of my luggage was still below 20 pounds. Here is what I used:

It's almost all Nokia. And if I had gotten a 2520 in time, it would have been all Nokia. I also brought a power strip, the MacBook Power Supply, s small tripod, and a couple of (tiny) USB chargers, not in the picture. I hook up the DC-50 to a USB charger plugged in on the nightstand. At night, the 1020 recharges on that plate, which itself is being recharged from USB power. During the day, the DC-50 recharges the phone, every time I put it in my bag. The camera grip holds the 1020 and attaches to the tripod. Total Nokia battery power in that photo: 8620 mAh, plus the Macbook and the headset.

I also switched to a Crumpler Light Delight Sling as my go bag. It's so light, that I never had to set it down. I never carried the MacBook and left it behind in my room.

If I want to carry the MacBook as well, I may need the Light Delite Messenger which is still no longer on my wishlist.

THANK YOU for showing us the Lumia 1020 and explaining the various features and details. Shirley, Ben, and I have done further research (found a Microsoft Kiosk/store in Tampa) and have decided to switch from our Android devices on over to Windows phone. We are each ordering a 1020. Shirley is especially excited to begin using the Lumia phone for her photo and video needs. And I've begun studying Windows phone development (emphasis on "begun"). Since Shirley and I already use Office 365, this will make things even more convenient. We truly appreciate you taking the time.
Cheers,
- Joe

Thank you, Joe. Interestingly enough "is this a Lumia" was the most frequently asked question at Connect. I 'sold' at least a dozen of them.

Danke noch mal für das Gadget. Bis in zwei Wochen.

Did you made the interview of Craig Hayman only with the Lumia 1020 ?
Thanks.

Yes, I did.

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
