Nokia takes a jab at HTC: teases upcoming event and new Lumias

What better time to tease your new event and upcoming product than just before the biggest unveiling of your fierce rivals? Nokia has done just that - right as HTC kicks off its One (M8) event, the Finnish company officially revealed that its next big announcement is coming in just a week, on April 2nd.

What will it be all about? Nokia invited its followers on Twitter to join the company for ‘#moreLumia’, so we’re looking forward to seeing what new devices does Nokia have up its sleeve.

Oh, and just along the way, it dropped a casual jab at HTC: “Why go for One when you get more?”

To sum it all up, we are left with an impression that Nokia will unveil more than one new Lumia smartphone in just a week on April 2nd. Will we see a new PureView device? Only time will tell, but we’re definitely hopeful.

I agree, 930 will be killer phone from Nokia.
I'm so excited about 930 because we know what 920 was come up with, Hopefully Nokia going to surprise us with 930 with great features.

Google has opened up their API's for Windows Phone, that's great news for those who depend on Google services :)

Play nicely Nokia, I mean Microsoft. Don't poke fun at someone because many people will poke fun at your Windows Phone. Just saying.

Anyway, bring it on! Surprise us, Nokia!

Eh, I don't think it was anymore then a playful jab. No worse then the Samsung "next big thing is here" jabs at the iPhone or such. The HTC new One announcement was a success, well done. Nokia was just enjoying a bit of "one-up manship". Mild compared to what some companies do.

Did you watch the live stream? No one was clapping because they were disappointed.

That's not the reaction going around the internet and social networks. Twitter users are raving about the new One and sites like Business Insider are saying "the best android phone just got even better". Maybe you don't like it, and that's ok, but others love it.

even us and phonearena and the rest of the world are disapointed.

another big mistake have they made again, even they made a loss for 6 months. they never learn and listen to what us consumers want...

I'm sorry, do you know the entire rest of the world? Wow! You must be a really important person. :-\

To say the rest of the world is disappointed is a ridiculous statement. If that's the case, then the M8 should have absolutely zero sales then. Just a cursory glance at Twitter says otherwise. The tech crowd loves the phone there. And there are far more people on Twitter than PA.

And from seeing your posts, you want totally unrealistic and imaginary specs and hardware.

Meh... Maybe if they weren't all running WP it would mean something. Beautiful phones but completely put off by Windows Phone OS. I'd actually go for an iPhone before owning anything that runs WP.

Eh, WP ain't for everyone. I love it, but it seems to be a "love it" or "hate it" kinda thing. I can respect that.

13. ojdidit84 (Posts: 414; Member since: 16 Jul 2011)


Totally agree. It's definitely not for me but a few people that I know love it. I love Nokia phones but as long as they run only WP, I'll admire from a distance.

Android isn't for everyone, iOS isn't for everyone, Symbian isn't for everyone, Blackberry OS isn't for everyone, WebOS isn't for everyone, Tizen isn't for everyone, Firefox OS isn't for everyone, Ubuntu isn't for everyone, Sailfish isn't for everyone, Maemo/Meego isn't for everyone....

Did I miss any OSes?

I wanted to cover everything before someone else comes in with negativity. I wouldn't even want to waste seconds of my life going to articles for an OS that I don't like, just to be a negative nancy, a downer, a rainer on other's parade.....

but that is just me.

Well that's the "beauty" of this being a forum for open discussion. Everyone has an opinion and whether you agree with it or not, they're going to voice it.

Anyway, I tried WP for a bit but it just didn't float my boat. A lot of things were missing that I was used to having on Android that I would still get on iOS. I'd love to have a Nokia device if even Symbian wasn't killed off. Maybe if Nokia does actually get a couple Android options out I'll go that route.

The fact still remains though that until WP improves in functionality and certain app options that I use that WP still doesn't have, I'll love my Nokias from a distance until something that suits me & my needs is installed on their devices out of the box. They can take jabs @ HTC all they want, but the fact still remains that many will still take the One over the Nokia simply because of the fact that it runs WP.

Yeah, a budget-range, 4", 3MP, 2 year old Snapdragon S4 phone with a custom OS built on top of 2 year old Android 4.1. Yeah, I'll pass. Don't see myself going there from the Note 3...

As long as whatever is announced reaches T-mo and Sprint... AT&T always gets all phones. And Big Red still has the Lumia Icon (929)

Since I switched from Android recently im very excited to see where Nokia and the Lumia series will take us. So far they've quite impressed me even without the upcoming Windows Blue / 8.1 Phone updste.

Wishing the best of Nokia and the newer Windows Phone manufacturers.
