Welcome Nokia to the Apple bashing club! The Finnish corporation's Lumia 920 has already made quite a splash in the tech sphere, even though the device isn't due to be released until the end of this year. Now, they've released an ad for the phone, which contrasts the colorful Lumia 920 against Apple's bleak iPhone dystopia.
Watch out for shrapnel – it's the smartphone wars. Actually, it's always the smartphone wars. But the heat always gets a little hotter this time of year, when Apple is making products releases, and the holiday season is right around the corner.
Competitors seem to think it’s the perfect time to mock fanboys, and tote their new offerings.
So, welcome Nokia to the Apple bashing club! The Finnish corporation's Lumia 920 has already made quite a splash in the tech sphere, even though the device isn't due to be released until the end of this year.
Featuring the Windows 8 mobile operating system and host of tantalizing specs, the Lumia 920 makes for a great addition into the current hall of upcoming iPhone rivals. Well, Nokia believes that anyways, as evidenced by the commercial they just released, which makes a point of the Lumia 920's many color choices as contrasted to the iPhone's black and white variety.
This comes a little more than a week after Samsung released an ad for its Galaxy S III, which portrayed enlightened users of the S III dazzling Apple fans in line for the release of the new iPhone. That particular commercial – and the rest of Samsung’s related campaign – is a tad more informative then the new Lumia 920 commercial, showcasing off several of the Galaxy’s abilities, and the iPhone 5’s comparative disadvantages.
Meanwhile, Apple’s iPhone may not be the most colorful breed of smartphone, but its recently released iPod touch does come in a variety of colors. Colorful smartphones may also be an upcoming trend, at least for those devices with Windows 8, as evidence by HTC’s recent announcement of the Windows Phone 8X and 8S.
