New Author: Andre

Hey guys (and gals if any :-P)

After following this blog for a number of weeks as an interesting source of information on the Nokia N8  amongst other things, Jay’s offered me the position as an author on the blog.

Yay me! :-).

Just thought I’d write up a brief introduction of myself, my interests and motivations so you guys could get to know me a little bit before I started writing actual posts so here goes.

I’m currently a undergrad student in the USA, looking to finish up a Bachelor’s in biology within the next year. Don’t ask what I’m planning on doing after because I honestly don’t know. I have always been a bit of a geek and have a love for technology in particular the mobile industry. It’s kinda startling how fast the industry is progressing and how quickly innovations are being made in the field, hence my interest.

My first phone was a  Nokia 3300 (think an N-gage without the games), followed by a 3250 and now a 5800. It’s funny but I’ve always had a liking for Nokia devices for their immense features, capable albeit occasionally buggy software and the fact that more often than not they were well ahead of the competition’s offerings, a trend that has seemingly disappeared in recent times unfortunately.

Anywho, hope you guys enjoy my future posts!

    Greetings Andre,
    I like this blog a lot and it’s good to see some new blood 🙂
    If you’re into molecular biology why not do a master’s/PhD in genomics or systems biology? They’re cool!

    Anyway, let’s hear some more NokNews!

    Cheers,

        Awesome! I finished my phd in computational biology slash bioinformatics a few years back and now work in the pharma. I work with quite a few biologists and constantly strive to understand better what they are trying to tell to me!
