Nokia: "Samsung take note, next generation Lumia coming soon"
0. phoneArena 16 Aug 2012, 06:22 posted on
How about a little confrontation between these two former rivals - Nokia and Samsung? We say former, because the focus nowadays seems to be more on Apple and Samsung, but anyways, Nokia is still the second-largest phone maker by volume in the world, so it's very interesting to observe the company's moves...

IMO , The statement indicates more of a lumia note (phablet) than anything else.

Haha, nice stuff.
But Nokia'd better back up the brave words with deeds. Its stunts and big words with Lumia 900 were virtually lies so we can be sure when we see the real product.

900 was awsome device not to mension the os provided for it was not up to the mark

These guys at Nokia are really shameless. They forgot that Samsung SELLS them the AMOLED panels, so be nice to them, or there will be shortages.
Take note you too Nokia :P

Samsung are not the only ones that make AMOLED or OLED panels. AU Optronics (AUO) and TPO Display also make OLED panels for Nokia.

True.. question is how much they produce?
I have seen figures stating that Samsung has 97% of the market.
22. Diego! (Posts: 614; Member since: 15 Jun 2009)
Yeah, but ALL AMOLED panels on Lumia were manufactured by Samsung

For this, if you call Nokia shameless, then what would you call Apple? They've been suing each other in court since a forever and Samsung is a major part supplier for Apple. The corporate world is not as simple as it looks.;)

I would rather walt for Note II now than to take Note.

Ha, the so called "not beta" phone can't even beat the S3 in terms of specs and functions/features. Samsung should have told them that statement a looooonngg time ago.

The 900 wasn't designed to be a world beater, merely a nice phone to go against a 4s, HTC Vivid, Samsung GS2 Skyrocket, and Motorola Atrix 2 (on AT&T's lineup) while being at least half the price of the first 3 if not lower. I say it's done a good job so far, speaking as a very satisfied owner, and I got mine during the preorder period and paid $0 for it. Most satisfactory "free" (not actually free due to contract) purchase I think I've yet had

Yeah, not saying the Lumia was a bad phone or wasn't worth it's price, from your statement it was very "value for money". What I'm saying is Nokia's getting ahead of themselves again when their first so called "breakthrough" phones weren't that successful.

might be nokia using rights given by ms to edit the OS as they want.This means that we will see some galaxy note type phones with wp8.This is going to be awesome for customers.Galaxy note 2 vs this wp8 thing!!!

How much liberty does the OEMs and carriers have with MS's phones? Don't own one so I'm curious to how much MS is giving control to the outside forces, if at all.

Nobody is going to take note so soon. Even if Nokia comes with a compelling product, it is going to take them years to recover their losses and position with proven sales.

I like Nokia but they really shouldn't be calling people out as they're slipping behind. Hopefully Windows Phone 8 succeeds.

Samsung is not going to be very worried about this as they have the world's best smartphone and phablet currently!

Samsung is done taking notes, it ready yielded results. Nokia had lost it's aura in the high end market. The word "Lumia" is nowhere as common/mainstream as the word "Galaxy". People in my area want a Galaxy phone and had no idea what a Lumia phone is. So even if Nokia produces something high end, it will have a lot of catching up to do.

I took notes when they first announced the PV 808, turned out to be a huge disappointment. I won't take notes from Nokia ever again.
30. No_Nonsense (Posts: 826; Member since: 17 Aug 2012)
What was so disappointing in the 808? A (non)dated OS?
21. oldmandaddy (Posts: 64; Member since: 01 May 2010)
Ok ,Samsung , you take note. You will fall like me from 45% to 10% soon. If you still making cheap phones and copy others. That's my advise. Love from Nokia.

Sammy just got " 'Not(e)'-fied"!!
Nokia...you disappoint at times, i hope this is not a stupid "act before you think" gimmick!!!
27. ChangMin2012 (Posts: 87; Member since: 14 Apr 2012)
I remember that "We will need to prove to you that our phone is faster than yours" campaign that they've made some months ago. I don't know what they'll do next to overthrow the galaxy.

I hope they not only overthrow the "galaxy" but the whole "universe"!! :D
