Sony Xperia at SKT

Written by admin on May 21, 2009 – 3:24 pm -

I spotted the Sony Xperia at a local SKT shop today while accompanying a colleague. Seemed like a very nice unit. The Xperia X1 runs Windows Mobile 6, unfortunately the language cannot be changed unless you flash the ROMs. A task that isn’t easy although there are a  lot of resources on the net should you be willing to try it on this W800,000 gadget. I’m assuming that  the features on this phone are similar to most Windows Mobile devices such as Samsungs T-Omnia. I like the X1 because of its physical keyboard which I’ve been used to, especially for text messaging and IM. Frankly speaking I’m starting to look at these phones because I’m getting tired of waiting for South Korean release of Apple’s iPhone.  If only the price tag weren’t so steep.

Meet and greet at Incheon Airport

Written by admin on May 8, 2009 – 11:32 am -

I’ve noticed that a lot of people stand in the crowded exits of Incheon International Airport waiting for their loved ones or passengers  up to emerge from customs clearance. 

I  on the other hand set a pre-arranged meeting place for my family or people I pick up at the airport. I have a number of photos of restaurants and shops at the airport. I then email a photo of where we are going to meet with directions how to get there. 

For example passengers from Manila often exit from Exit B , so I tell them to turn left after exiting and look for Ministop and I will be sitting at the benches in front of it. I also attached a photo in the email which makes it easier especially for passengers who are not familiar with the airport.



If you don’t like the idea of just sitting at the benches then the photos below are alternative meeting places.  

One of my favorites is meeting at Kraze Burger close to Exit D. If you bring your laptop, free WIFI is available to make your wait pretty much painless.


And there’s also Baskin Robins close to Exit E
