Nokia: "Samsung take note, next generation Lumia coming soon"
posted by Ray S. / Aug 16, 2012, 6:22 AM
The move comes shortly after the company announced its September 5 event, where it's almost sure that it'll introduce us to its first Windows Phone 8 devices. Nokia is probably affected by the fact that Samsung recently overtook its position as the world's leading cell phone manufacturer, so it kind of sees the South Korean company as its arch-enemy right now. When it comes to smartphones, though, once powerful Nokia is now far behind its competition with its modest market share of 6.6%, so it has a lot of catching up to do.
The Finns have produced some wonderful devices in the Lumia 800 and 900, and since we already know that Windows Phone 8 will be a quite substantial overhaul of the platform, we're really looking forward to seeing what surprises Nokia has in store for us.

September is going to be a banner month for phone aficionados.

Haha, nice stuff. But Nokia'd better back up the brave words with deeds. Its stunts and big words with Lumia 900 were virtually lies so we can be sure when we see the real product.

These guys at Nokia are really shameless. They forgot that Samsung SELLS them the AMOLED panels, so be nice to them, or there will be shortages. Take note you too Nokia :P

Samsung are not the only ones that make AMOLED or OLED panels. AU Optronics (AUO) and TPO Display also make OLED panels for Nokia.

For this, if you call Nokia shameless, then what would you call Apple? They've been suing each other in court since a forever and Samsung is a major part supplier for Apple. The corporate world is not as simple as it looks.;)

Ha, the so called "not beta" phone can't even beat the S3 in terms of specs and functions/features. Samsung should have told them that statement a looooonngg time ago.

The 900 wasn't designed to be a world beater, merely a nice phone to go against a 4s, HTC Vivid, Samsung GS2 Skyrocket, and Motorola Atrix 2 (on AT&T's lineup) while being at least half the price of the first 3 if not lower. I say it's done a good job so far, speaking as a very satisfied owner, and I got mine during the preorder period and paid $0 for it. Most satisfactory "free" (not actually free due to contract) purchase I think I've yet had

Yeah, not saying the Lumia was a bad phone or wasn't worth it's price, from your statement it was very "value for money". What I'm saying is Nokia's getting ahead of themselves again when their first so called "breakthrough" phones weren't that successful.

Samsung is done taking notes, it ready yielded results. Nokia had lost it's aura in the high end market. The word "Lumia" is nowhere as common/mainstream as the word "Galaxy". People in my area want a Galaxy phone and had no idea what a Lumia phone is. So even if Nokia produces something high end, it will have a lot of catching up to do.

I took notes when they first announced the PV 808, turned out to be a huge disappointment. I won't take notes from Nokia ever again.

I remember that "We will need to prove to you that our phone is faster than yours" campaign that they've made some months ago. I don't know what they'll do next to overthrow the galaxy.
