Nokia “smokes” BlackBerry users in new Amazing Everyday video challenge
Nokia wants you to use the “Smarter Apps” of their Lumia Windows Phone line, and in the tradition of past Windows Phone challenges has released a video showing of a demonstration representative challenging some BlackBerry users to see who can check in via FourSquare more rapidly.

The video is more light-hearted than the “Smoked by Windows” campaign earlier this year, and includes a magic trick as well as free Lumia’s for the participants in the challenge. Like the Smoked by Windows commercials, the video focuses on the benefits of being able to pin apps to the Live Tiles, which in this case lets the user check in in a couple of short taps.

Check out the kinder and gentler challenge video below and let us know what you think. If you want to see more of Nokia’s “Smarter Apps” campaign, check out the source link below.

When BB10 comes out, WP8 will be out already.

This is like watching the two old guys in "Grumpy Old Men" fight.

It's funny, sad, and pointless all at the same time...

Smoking BB, the other failing phone company? Shocking. Way to be tuff. Pick on the dying and kick'em while they're down. You know what else Nokia is smoking if they think WP will save their company?

They are both failing companies, so there is nothing wrong.

As previously stated, watching the two old guys in "Grumpy Old Men" fight is pretty much the same concept: funny, sad, and pointless all at the same time.

Nokia sold out the Lumia the first 4 weeks of production. 2-3 million handsets activated. This trend won't last with one carrier in the US. When they have 3 carriers in Q4 I think this will be a consistent number for them. I think as far as activated phones---the world will be impressed Q1. This won't translate into great cash flow right off---but it will come.

Ugly phones as ugly as m$

Most tech writers recognize that there is going to be upward and downward trends in the next 3 years. Apple is suspected to have slightly less market share and Windows much more...almost 20% by 2015. I guess 5 years ago the thought of Kia being as big as they are today would have seemed crazy---but they are. Two years ago the handwriting was on the wall for Blackberry---just as the upward trend now for Windows. Verizon said they were going to put Windows Mobile on the map just like they did android---so I think that means they are going to activate many many phones.

Great point.

But, some variables may change that were not previously equated.

Do they honestly think some girl with an old as F**k blackberry stands a chance? Besides what's with the WP7 hate? OBVIOUSLY it's not going to outsell precious android and it's hundreds of handsets that have permeated the market, but at least it's not mimicking another operating system, but that debate could go around in circles. The point is Android may be amazing but it's just a common as the iPhone and thus, at least for me it doesn't stand out and becomes boring. I mean honestly it's another day another Android super phone in the works or coming out! This time with a 5.7" screen!!! It's a little ridiculous if you ask me, If I wanted a mini-tablet to use a phone so I can look like the biggest tool on the Bus or on campus I would buy one. So it's just a little ridiculous all the bashing going on, WP7 is an interesting and supported operating system that's up against ridiculous and extremely suborn consumers that can't see past the 20 Android phones released this week and the next 10 coming the following week. I hope WP7 can show people that it's worth all the money Microsoft and Nokia are investing.

Some people have a bias against Windows because of Vista and they have been out of the market. One year ago I would have had many doubts about the come back----but they did it. So for many people they are going to have to have Lumia type phones at every carrier and brisk sales.

In the end the only question is...... are lots of people gonna purchase a windows phone or it will just vanish in smokes? Is it worthy of your hard earned cash?
