Nokia says iDoalotmore, challenging Apple with… Symbian
posted by Victor H. / May 27, 2011, 5:25 AM
A walkthrough of all the “iDoalotmore” services on the local Nokia website details how Nokia Maps, Music, HD Camera and Video, Video Calling, Apps and USB on the go trump the competition, and while we can see the benefit of having Nokia Maps with free navigation and the superior camera quality of a phone like the Nokia N8, we’re hardly convinced that Video Calling and Apps could outdo existing services by Apple. That might seem like aggressive marketing, but hey, Nokia has to push that next 150 million in the next couple of years somehow, right?

i love this kind of marketing .. especially when it's 100% true :D

I feel sympathy for the company in that it still lives a fool's dream! As long as it doesn't accept its mistakes (especially symbian, odd shapes of handsets etc), it can never compete in the new market place. They should try to learn and adapt to changing trends, rather than trying to force the customer with 100s of models with no specific feature worthwhile!! RIP!!

I'd have to agree with the writer here. I'd give Nokia their maps, and I'll give the n8 the camera edge(only the n8) but music goes to iTunes because of apples super aggressive and super successful dealings with record companies. Apps also go to Apple and not just because of number. Also USB on the go is great. But video calling is just as simple and accessible on iphone. What Nokia should have promoted was apps, USB on the go, camera strength, and os versatility. Widgets are a big plus. But the while do more thing is old for every os. It only stands up to stock versions of an os with no apps. But since everyone has apps on their phones or at least access the differences in what one os can do over another are minute at best.(for the dumb dumbs that's minute as in my-noot)

Looks like Symbian^3 Anna update is round the corner. I found these two video which was uploaded yesterday. Seems to be genuine from Nokia. It also talks about NFC enablement as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v

Another proof for PA's biased opinions towards Apple. You were hardly convinced since you all are diehard fanboys who think iPhone is the mightiest of them all. Well guess what? Your facetime crap can only do video call over wifi. Oh and btw, you can't send files over bluetooth. What an advanced technology!

Hmmmmm. Here's a hyundai elantra fully loaded with a navigation system, rearview camera, heated seats, etc. And then here's a base model BMW 3series offering none of those extra features the elantra offers. They're giving both cars for free. Which one would you choose? I guess the Hyundai? Lol

I doubt the Finns knew about their Indian colleagues are coming up with this ad. I also work for a multinational which has offices in India and I know the smooth talking English speaking Indians often come up with communication campaigns which are not not always approved by HQ management.
