“King's Speech” dominated the 83rd Oscars yesterday at least within one certain dream and not that of a ballet dancer, but what most gadget-geeky folk found even more interesting was the ads. You surely noticed the Nokia commercial, which advertises the company's current flagship, the N8, which curiously enough is available on zero U.S. carriers. Our unforgetful mind also kindly reminds us that Symbian was deemed a “burning platform”, which Nokia plans to abandon in the not-so-distant future, or was it a dream within a dream?
You might know that the carrier is utterly underrepresented on the U.S. market, but could this ad do anything to change that? At the current price of $399 off contract on Amazon the phone is double the price of your usual subsidized smartphone. In return, you get the reigning leader in camera phones with the freedom to choose a carrier and no strings attached. We leave to you the decision, but in the meantime check out the ad once again and remember not to attempt bull riding. Seriously.
