Nokia comic strip urges people to #Switch to get wireless charging

Nokia comic strip urges people to #Switch to get wireless charging
It is Sunday which in the U.S. is the traditional day for the newspapers to offer a large-sized, color version of the funny pages. Considering that Nokia has recently invaded everything with its #Switch campaign, it is no surprise that the Finnish OEM has someone drawing a "#Switch Comic Strip." We haven't seen the use of the word in an advertising campaign since the old days when Tareyton cigarettes launched their "I'd rather fight than switch" ads. Of course, that was before home computers, few television programs were in color, and when you were talking about a company called Apple, you were talking about the Beatles.

The Nokia comic is titled "Don't let cables tie you down" and shows a poor generic phone trying to free itself from a wall outlet while the Nokia Lumia 920 is lying on a wireless charging pad, getting powered up while a party is taking place. Don't forget that AT&T recently extended its offer of a free charging pad to buyers of the Nokia Lumia 920 from the carrier. Originally set to expire on January 10th, the deal now continues through February 21st.

Hmm anyway wireless charging is not enough to survive in today's market .NOKIA . It was introduced by Samsung in the galaxy s3 months before the release of lumias

You very very correct. All those who buy windows phone are fools. Android is the best followed by ios

Well its good to show and say and lead and give wise advise that Android is freedom and others are that you are in control, the kid is you who has no rights to modify the OS on Wp8! ™®©

did u ever used ur mind why would i want to modify when i have many other things to do in life rather screwing my phone all day android customization is ok not the best part it might be for geeks but mostly for those who have nothing in the world to do please kill your self because u sound like old man trying to dictate whats good whats not. Seriously now i really starting to hate android while i never hated it before ever all because of garbage fools like you who dont respect life and others. now who ever ask me why i hate android while it is the best OS i will say i find mostly Android is owned by childish 30 year idiots who got nothing else to do but brag and troll. you promoting android like "a man trying to sale Freezer in Syberia" and you are seriously disgrace to android this is not how to market ur precious OS by trolling others

Cause you're a basic standard user, and doesn't bother about power or specs, you just take items as it comes, but we like to to tinkle and find out ways to gain bhp. You must be loving you're BMW 318, while enjoying the rides on M3. WP8 WP7 are for similar Like ios , also for first time buyers, who prefers an app launcher like WP Android is for any age and are for only techies and Advanced users IOS is for dummies little kids Old age pensioners

Android phones have better screens than lumias look at s amoled hd on gs3 and note 2 its the best displays anyway better than lumias Games all the popular game developers will develop games for android and it will be available first to us But wp takes time Calls more voip support is for android Social network android has more social network apps to choose from Only thing I agree with you is that Lumia's have better camera (if we don't take galaxy camera)

ok finally u started making sense Games as i said i see moblie games are part time i have ever low interst in playing on moblie i am love mouse keyboard games full HD experence not compromized downscale moblie games besides not even consoles take the lead on high end PCs windows based :P skype facebook is all enough to do all the job why i wonder around of rest when i have it all maps: google maps is good but nokia maps is more then good enough free offline accurate display both got same level of displays ever i think 920 took the edge of hybrid screen since resolution/HD etc are not anymore the most distinctive feature everyone now uses reall high end stuff +-1 doesnt give a whole lot of edge again Camera is one thing you cant ignore when buying phones Galaxy cam is not phone but Point to shoot cam like thing u gave the answer urself so why i change to android when i used both OS and i find wP more better for me based on Hardware features

I've used wp and so I'm disappointed with it. You are saying wp has the things that you want. But why choose less if you can get more. ..... I can accept nokia has great design and cameras but only thing I disagree is with the os

@SamesungFan, the Lumia 920's screen is 720p, super-sensitive, and has a 60fps rate. The S3 is matches it on resolution (720X1280) but falls behind in all other areas, including color accuracy and brightness, and also lacks the ClearBlack polarizing layer fir improved outdoor visibility. The GN2 is 1080p, but lower frame rate and also not super-sensitive. So saying either is "better" is inaccurate. Also, no current Samsung phone offers wireless charging out of the box. It is true Nokia isn't the first to offer it (Palm Pre comes to mind), the technology is finally mature enough to work on a wide scale.

Amoled has lower perceived sharpness, and oversaturated color, not mentioning the burning issue which can be permanent. Not all games come to android first, mostly is iOS. Well, I am a fan of android, but quite ashamed to be in the same boat as you, who are obviously so blinded. Heck, Galaxy S3 and Note 2 are two of the best smartphones, but not the best two smartphones. Dude, seriously, don't be a blind follower. I really pity you.

So, you don't have time to customize your phone....which allows you to put the items you want on your home screen making overall use of your phone faster....but you do have time to come to a phone website and comment over and over. I'm sure that makes sense on your planet. By the way, when on a Phone website, you may see a comment or two about which phone OS is better. On your home planet, can someone go to ESPN.com and say "Yankees vs. Red Sox is irrelevant, can't we just support the team that suits our needs."

Hey haseeb look around you man nokia is falling they even sold their head quarters, nokia has good designs but wp8 is the worst os I've ever seen. You have to admit that. You can't because you are a kid who loves Nokia :-D

Its no point , he is a WP Fanboy, just like the guy WP8FOREVER. Since Flop took over Nokia went down even further, why don't they fire him and the board members right know....? I surely believe if Nokia choose Android they will be on par with Samsung and HTC Sony, but when it comes to specs they love to provide midrange, cause Nokia is all about connecting people! Look at there adverts, its all about how we merge and share, but if you kook at Samsung ads, its all about power and specs! ™

Have you used anything else? IOS, original blackberry, Windows Mobile, Android pre-2.2, non-smartphones'... WP blows them all out of the water. Easy to use, easy to master, clever, and efficient. Android is finally getting itself out of lag-Ville with 4.1+, but it still requires too much effort and setup to work as as seamlessly as WP does out of the box. Millions of customers agree, as its on of the highest-rated mobile OSes in history, notably higher than any android release, and up there with Blackberry at its heyday and ios when it wasn't antiquated. Free your mind.
