As London is preparing to host the 2012 Olympic games this summer, the streets of the city will be receiving a lot of temporary guests. This will naturally put a strain on both public transport and law enforcement, but it will also increase the amount of garbage produced. To reduce litter during this time and beyond, the city have chosen to place new digital recycling bins around town. They will display the latest news, while also collecting 1.65 tons of material every year, and at the same time provide platform to broadcast public alerts if needed, in a fast and efficient way.
Promoting their new Lumia handsets, Nokia today installed a headphone-shaped arch at Westfield Stratford, the shopping mall located at the gateway to the Olympic stadium. A similar installation was also in place at the unveil of the Lumia series at Nokia World 2011
The new Nokia Lumia phones will be on display at the London Olympics 2012 site, from today where up to 750,000 people a week will be able to get hands-on with the handsets. Rumors have previously mentioned that Nokia and Microsoft was preparing for a massive PR campaign to promote Nokia’s new phones running Windows Phone, and this is probably just the beginning. Personally I feel that this is not a day to soon, since I haven’t seen a Nokia commercial anywhere in years. This surely must have been big contributor to the dropped sales that Nokia have experienced in recent years.
