Nokia takes over 'The Sun' with Lumia ads
Can you have too much of a good thing? When it comes to advertising in one paper, Nokia and Phones 4U sure don’t think so.

Saturday’s issue of the The Sun featured not 1, not 2, but 7, yes SEVEN, Nokia Lumia ads. Nokia has reported again and again that sales of its Windows Phone handsets in Europe have done extraordinarily well. It was even reported that back in November the Nokia Lumia 800 sold out in the UK. The Finnish manufacturer has also promised to continue its marketing efforts surrounding the Lumia series worldwide.

With that being said, we can’t say that we’re surprised to see Nokia continue to make a big push of its Windows Phone offerings, but are seven ads in one publication too much? Would Nokia be better off spreading the wealth around or are multiple impressions from one source the way to go? We guess only time will tell how effective this advertising blitz is.

All through ads are to try actually get sales as the lumia sales are low although by Nokias smartphone low sales standards they would consider them to be selling well

lumia 900 vs titan 2 which one is better? And will the cyan lumia look good with red tiles?

I would go with the Lumia 900. I like the Lumia's design, build quality, mic quality. I would not use red tiles with a cyan lumia, but that is a personal choice, and you can always change the color of the tiles.

Although, if you can wait, I would hold off on getting a WP7 phone until some information comes out about whether current WP7 phones will be able to upgrade to WP8 when that comes out. I hope so, but you never know...

the lumia is a much better option... the screen is by far better-- the titan has way to big for the pixel count and the nokia has a nice clearblack amoled while the titan is not anything special... also the camera on the nokia is a little better i think... and more support in my opinion
