Tommi Ahonen, co-author of Communities Dominate Brands (the book and the blog), makes the point that CNN's use of the Nokia N93 as a mobile video camera at the 3GSM even in Barcelona marks an important point in the adoption of mobile tech by professional news organizations.
Its a major rite of passage for any new technology, when the first professionals acknowledge its use. Thats how PCs gained acceptance in corporate accounting, or journalists starting to use word processors, or marketing researchers admitting to using the internet for research etc. Today CNN has shown the Nokia N93 in its coverage of the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona, and had a segment shot exclusively with the cameraphone
My experience with this device has been great. I've used it to capture photos and video in my travels over the past couple of months. The image quality in both still and video modes is very impressive as are the playback options on the device and when connected to a TV. Nokia has taken to calling these devices handheld mobile computers. With image and video editing tools built right in as well as the capability to upload content directly to Flickr and Vox, it's hard to argue with that label.
