Nokia offers up latest "Smartphone Beta Test" ad
smacks of irony considering the problems that the phone has had right after being launched.
Nonetheless, the new spot is supposed to show how a non-Nokia owner is happy with his smartphone because by being the same as everyone else's handset, he is "expressing himself as an individual." Not only doesn't that comment make any sense of course, but all of a sudden a loud and obnoxious female starts yakking that she has the same phone. It is obviously a bit of a shot at Android and iOS users. The Nokia Lumia 900 is off to a great start and now that a software fix has been made available to owners of the phone, it should be interesting to see if Nokia, Microsoft and AT&T have a real competitor on their hands.

Did someone has noticed that "Fragile", "Death Grip" and "Outside" videos (parody of iPhone) was removed from "smartphonebetatest" chanel in YouTube?!
Maybe Apple will sue Nokia for this parody videos??? :D

What I really like best is that they didn't mention Windows or Microsoft at all. That should really help the general uptake on the product.
Just a great way to come late to the market and claim that everyone else was "Just Testing".

The first thing that comes to mind for most is lets tear this piece of s**t apart! You know what though, I look at the obvious. Its Nokia's commercial showing something different. No issues here. Of course there are those who like to cause flames and that's just sad on their part.

I'm no marketer, but it's a risky thing to tell folks that something is perfect out of the box. To me, it would come off as cocky more than confidence. Of course there is some humor in there...but in a tech world...saying there are no bugs or flaws what so ever is just asking for trouble...
Remember when the LifeLock CEO posted his social security number and still got his identity stolen? Even Apple, who has enjoyed years of obscurity on the computer side of things, are starting to get viruses and worms to deal with. Gotta be careful about being anything-proof. Even a neutrino can pass through lead undetected...

"expressing myself as individual"...? How the hell he'd do that...when all Wp7 UI look exactly the same. And majority smartphone have issues at first launch, even the Lumia 900...get over it.

Yeah majority iphone users are stupid number 1 in the list is eaxvac nothing to do in pa but trolling android users. Admit the truth now that smartphone users are smart now in choosing what's the best smartphones, obviously it's not idevice anymore, it's the one having most of the market share. No need to tell you about it obviously you know it. Its better you go to the farm and eat grass!!

Wow eaxvac...calling someone else stupid without even knowing them, i think you've got some serious mental issues there...i wouldn't go that far adressing other smartphone users. Respect others and respect yourself.

We live in a world where everyone is stupid, but some are more or less stupid than others. So yeah Ridwan might be a stupid fandroid, but you, iSheeep, are obviously stupider than him!
