Since we have quite a lot of members here who are pretty active and keep discussions going I thought it would be a nice idea to get to know each other a little bit better. I welcome you to use this thread to introduce yourself, tell us why you like Nokia, what else in life you’re passionate about, what are your deepest, darkest secrets or just whatever you want to share with your Nokia/HMD fellas here.
To set a good example I will start and tell you a bit about myself.
As I stated >here< I joined HMD about a month ago, so I’m really new on board, every day is still a bit of an adventure and sometimes I feel like a kid exploring the world for the first time, with massive support from my fellow colleagues. Originally, I’m from Central Europe, but studied in Finland and now I’m glad to call it my wonderful second home.
Ending up at HMD in the role of the Community Manager is a little dream come true because it combines two things in my life I really appreciate. First of it ‘Nokia Phones’. One of my first phones was the Nokia 3210 and of course later on the 3310. I still remember all the Snake high score wars I had with classmates (little wink to my avatar). Best thing was they were nearly indestructible. Small detour – when I was younger, I ‘accidently’ throw my sisters’ Nokia out of the window (3rd floor :D)…. It survived with just a few scratches.
I used the classic Nokia phones for a long time and also have experience with some of the Lumia models. When I heard that HMD will produce Nokia branded phones I went crazy. Second thing is the Community Manager role itself. Having a background in Media and Communication, new media/social media has always been close to my heart. Combining these two things – AMAZING!!! I have some great ideas with the community and the forum. I can’t share as much as I was hoping for today. For now, I want to focus on some new functions in the Forum (User profiles, Private Messaging, Mention function…) and there are some little specials coming up for you people out there. And I’m still happy for any suggestions and ideas you have – so keep it going
I think this is enough about me. Looking forward to read your introduction.
Have a great time in the community,
P.S. Every post in here, which is not related to this specific topic will get deleted – there are enough sub-forums and threads where you can post your questions/comments/experiences related to our products. Let’s keep this a place where we can get to know each other a bit better. Thank you
Hi Harshavardhan, Rinzler and Purush,
I know some of you have already been very active in the forum but still welcome to the Community and nice to meet you all :D
I hope you have a nice time here.
Huhu Bulls6 :)
and welcome to the Community :D. Great to have you here and I hope you enjoy the community. Let me guess, you have the same problem as stated >here<? Or is it simply not changing?
I've been a Nokia fan for over a decade and am very enthusiastic about the return of Nokia phones made by HMD. Like everyone, I've got some favourite phones but unlike most I never had a Nokia "feature" phone back in the day, my nostalgia is for when Nokia was doing its own thing in the smartphone world with Symbian and Maemo. There were some great initiatives in those days and many of them I would like to see return, eventually. After we all started jumping from one flaming oil rig to another I have a
Lumia, also a great phone - without Nokia Windows Phone would have died
Now I'm with HMD's Nokia phones and finding that life with high quality hardware but without the little software touches that I'd got used too from Symbian, Maemo/Harmattan and Lumia is sometime disappointing... hence why I make of my suggestions! I'm also a big fan of backward compatibility and connectivity, which is why I really want an HMD phone with a universal connector for headsets so I can use my old N8 one (so much better than my Lumia and Android Nokia headsets).
I'm very pleased to see that this community is starting to grow beyond just a few regular users and now it's more than I can keep up with! (although that also makes me a little sad). I'll do my best to live up to my "community hero" tag and try to make sure Laura and her colleagues at HMD still think I deserve it :D
Hi conqueror and madbilly
Although interacting with both of you already still a very warm welcome to the community.
Great to have you here.
@conquerer that’s a very interesting secret :)
@madbilly always nice to read you and no worries you’re living up to a community hero :D
Have a great day,
I am old Nokia user, coming back again to Nokia (HMD) with the release of Nokia 7 Plus.
I ordered this on 21st May and expecting to enjoy Nokia again very soon. Thank you HMD for such a wonderful phone.
