All right, after I caught my 7 AM "red eye" flight from Munich to Nice, I recently arrived in Cannes. Weather isn't that sunny as I hoped (please cross the fingers with me that it becomes better) but if you come from the winter (around 0° C) these 10 - 15° C here are pretty warm and spring for me! :-)
Right from now, my live photo blog from the 3GSM World Congress in Cannes opened and I already uploaded some photos with my i-Mate Phone Edition through GPRS. Not to say that uploading files via GPRS takes age (most GPRS terminals supports a maximum of 2 slots for sending which is around 19 Kbit only) and to minimize GPRS roaming costs I bought a Wi-Fi voucher for the local HotSpot, provided by SFR (the largest Telco here in France). Well, a 3 days voucher costs 80 €! 8O No wonder, Wolfgang have mixed emotions about Wi-Fi hotspotting abroad but at least I was able to buy it online with my Credit Card instead of searching for a local voucher seller! :-)

All right - I will continue with my breakfast now while I'm remote accessing my PC at home... I love this Wi-Fi stuff (except the prices to get access to it) but that's what a handy Internet should be, plus GPRS for rural areas.

Later today I will snap some more photos you will find here. Stay tuned for some amazing news!

Cheers ~ Arne
