Nokia N81 viral ad has a countdown timer for August 29th at 09:00 in the UK

This is all we know about the N81 so far (the picture above is the best we have):

  • S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1
  • 8 GB of memory built in
  • 16 million color 320×240 resolution screen
  • 2 megapixel camera
  • 3.5 mm headphone jack
  • WiFi and Bluetooth with A2DP support
  • 2100 MHz 3G and Quadband GSM/EDGE
  • 102 x 50 x 17.9 mm; 140 grams (these are sketchy)

Matt Miller linked to Kevin Tofel who has information about a viral ad campaign going on right now at www.070829.com

The trick to the site is to hit the pause button in the center of the screen once the shapes form a phone. After you watch a few very weird, hopefully not nightmare inducing videos, you’re presented with a countdown clock:

It counts down to August 29th at 09:00 in the UK. Why the UK? That is where Fortune Magazine says Nokia CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo will be, at the Ministry of Sound Dance Club.

Who the hell goes to a club at 09:00 is beyond me, but this will be a very hot device. This viral site also has an RSS feed you might want to add to your reader.

Here is an idea for the marketing people at S60, why not give away a certain number of devices to the people at the club that night?
