Nokia Lumia 2520 U.K. ad takes shots at the Apple iPad Air
With so many tablets now available, including refreshed models of some slates like the Nexus 7 (2013) and the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition), Nokia needed a way to standout with its new Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet. So the Finnish based manufacturer created an ad for the U.K.that takes some shots at the new Apple iPad Air.

The ad shows a random guy walking in to a coffee house to show his friends his new iPad Air. The voice over announcer says that it is thinner than a pencil, referring to Apple's recent commercial for the device. So this guy sits down to do some work, and finds that typing on glass isn't so productive. He's forced to switch to his "beast" to complete his task, which is a laptop he carries around with him. Eventually, he is back to using the iPad Air when all of a sudden, the battery dies. Back to the laptop.

And just then he spots someone with the Nokia Lumia 2520 attached to the Power Keyboard. That adds as much as another 5 hours of battery life to the 8000mAh cell inside the tablet, and makes typing a breeze for users. And while our hero sits with his dead iPad Air and his humungous laptop, he asks, "Did I buy the wrong tablet?"

Another clever ad from Nokia. Earlier this past weekend, we showed you an X-rated spot for the Nokia Lumia 1020 from Nokia France. Commercials like these are bound to help Nokia get some attention for its products.

Thanks,Anonymous Tipster!
