Nokia ad says that you can learn the Art of Taekfoto or just buy a Nokia Lumia 1020
How would you like to learn the manly art of Taekfoto? According to a hilarious ad produced by Nokia UAE (that's United Arab Emirates to you and me), Master Rez-Tu-Lo (get it?) will teach you how to get to the front row so that you can take great photographs. The secret is available in 250 lessons neatly packaged on video for 6999 AED ($1905 USD).

Of course this is all made up. Nokia says that you don't have to fight to get to the front row if you're sporting the Nokia Lumia 1020 with its 41MP PureView snapper. This dovetails those other ads that Microsoft has produced showing the pushing and fighting that Apple iPhone and Samsung Galaxy S4 owners have to resort to in order to get close-up shots of a class play. The closing shot of that commercial showed a couple, each holding their Nokia Lumia 1020, using the zoom feature on the camera in order to get tight close-ups from the back of the room.

Looking for a laugh on a sleepy Saturday? Click on the video below!

Nokia ads are so centered on the camera you could almost forget the device is a phone. There's more to a smart phone than just a camera... Come on Nokia, don't you have anything else to say about your products?

What should they advertise? Gaming performance on the 1520? Nah, the same chipset/screen resolution is in every other flagship right now.

It is the "The Camera Phone, a DSLR one at that.." of course they will market that.

They do market other things, like their live tiles, their office, their social hub etc etc.

But when your phones camera's are consistently out performing the competition you go for it.

And OS? Everyone I know that uses a phone the same way, other than 'options' most of which cause half my tech problems at work, the end user can careless half the time as long as it works. And in lower end phones, all that matters is price. Can it make calls? Check. Browse the web? Check. Download social apps? Check. Take pics and share? Check.

Oh really? Heard of Garmin? Who provides the maps for them? Here's something for you kids that dis on Nokia phones.....Their phones use less data why using GPS. Now they are good at more than just making cameras. Now complaint about the "sound profiles" again. I need a good laugh. Sent on my Note 3.

Really? Were you expecting pictures? I could illustrate my post instead of using English. I have a few apps for that. Sent from Lumia 920.
