When they’re not busy making impressive S60 phones the Samsung folks like to throw a big party. And boy, do they know how to do that! Last night some of the Symbian crew including myself had the pleasure of attending their Samsung “Soul party” in the Opium Mar club.
Opium Mar is a huge night club that is located right on one of Barcelona’s beaches (palm trees and all). They were serving some lovely Paella complete with proper, king-sized prawns. There was a also free bar serving anything you asked for.
The entertainment started with some live acts…
…which eventually gave way to a DJ flanked by two percussionists who played a wide variety of music until late into the night. The crowd was always heaving and us Symbianites were up there with the best of ’em dancing away on the stage. Here’s a little panoramic view of the dance floor I recorded on my phone.
We all had a fantastic night there, so a very big 감사합니다 to Samsung!! ^_^

I always though Samsung’s sleek S60 slider, the i560, was only available in black. Well, the S60 stand proved me wrong – purple ones exist too!

Samsung have taken up the ad spend gauntlet this year, shouting their u900 touch screen from the rooftops. Touch is going to be the word of the show methinks, along with convergence and possibly hangover.
