Nokia knows how to party

BARCELONA, Spain -- Last night, Nokia threw a huge party down by the marina. Housed in a huge tent, there were two separate rooms -- one for the band and another for networking.

The room containing the band and stage was alive with dancing. The band, rumored by good sources to be made up of all Nokia employees, had at least 11 members. They sang covers, including hits by Madonna, Jimi Hendrix and other unrecognizable tones (probably Finnish).

Although the band was impressive for a bunch of Nokia workers, you couldn't get the geek out of the crowd. The dancers -- completely enthralled in a tune -- would not even flinch at pulling out their devices and sending a text message or read e-mail. One person, front and center, head-banged while holding his device in front of his face with both hands. What was even more impressive was the number of camera phones there were taking shots and videos of the whole scene.
