Thursday thrill – Nokia Scavenger Hunt at Web 2.0 Expo

San Francisco, USA – Nokia has been having a good time at the Web 2.0 Expo. The booth has been busy with folks asking questions about the Ovi Store, Ovi Maps, and Point and Find. We’ve been busy on stage, as well: Tero Ojanperä gave a talk on Wednesday and Anssi Vanjoki gave a keynote on Thursday.

Not to be lulled by the usual Expo action, Nokia decided to organize a scavenger hunt for the journalists and bloggers we know who are at the show. Orchestrating this madness is none other than Molly Schonthal, from the same communications team as the Nokia Conversations team.

We have more about the hunt and some pictures after the jump.

The setup
Molly is expecting about 20 journalists from North and South America to join in the hunt, divided into three teams. The hunt incorporates sites from famous movies that have taken place in and around Union Square in San Francisco. Teams will get their clues over Ovi Contacts and have to navigate using Nokia Maps 3.0 (with the pedestrian navigation, of course). Then, as proof of a successful find, teams will upload photos to Ovi Share.

The winning team will receive champagne and chocolates. So the competition will be fierce.

The hunt starts around 16:00 San Francisco time. We’ve added below a player of the Ovi Share channel. It should fill up as the teams report back.
