Nokia: Samsung Take Note, Next Gen Lumia Coming Soon

By - Source: Twitter | B 40 comments

Nokia executive takes a jab at Samsung on Twitter.

With a joint event coming up between Nokia and Microsoft on September 5th, we could be a few weeks away from seeing a brand new Lumia phone, equipped with Windows Phone 8.

Earlier today, Nokia's executive vice president of sales and marketing, Chris Weber took to twitter to publicize how good the company is feeling about the upcoming Lumia.

With little information regarding the upcoming event available, Weber stirs things up in the blogosphere by calling out Samsung with the following tweet:With Samsung's just released Galaxy Note 10.1 and the Galaxy Note 2 just around the corner, it's unclear whether or not Weber directed his tweet at one of the devices, but Samsung has yet to come up with a clever response. At least not yet. Either way, it looks like we'll have to wait until September 5th to see if the next generation Lumia is all that Weber hypes it up to be.

    Samsung: Nokia take note, put up or shut up.

    OTOH, I can't wait to see if Nokia can pull this off. Their latest phones, albeit running great, have been lackluster in terms of hardware. Give us a powerful phone, Nokia, and we'll be all over it like fleas on a monkey's ar$e.

    If Windows Phone 8 allows me control over my software, I will certainly be giving it serious consideration.

    I am running an android phone now with a dual core 1GHz CPU and 1GB of RAM. One of the reasons it needs this much hardware is because android is pathetic at memory and app management. Whenever I open up task manager I see all these apps running I never opened. I am tired of android trying to decide for me what should be running and what shouldn't. If it didn't do this, it wouldn't need half the RAM.

    Also, people complain that Microsoft doesn't update their phones with the latest OS, well guess what, android phones don't either. While my phone could easily run Jelly Bean, it will never get it and may not even get ICS though hardware wise it was designed with ICS in mind.

    If Microsoft encourages good app development, and has Windows Phone 8 give me control over my device, I will give it a very serious look see.

    upgrades in os are usually the carrier/ phone makers fault. my wife's phone is a intecept 2 we did get he rupdated to 2.3 even though it was onyl ever released with 2.2, i had to root it, and have found a kit for upgrading it to 4.0 but the specs might not work fo rit... i liek android so far as i was using a palm pre befor emy samsung galaxy nexus ... but the not being updatd was why i went with the nexus lien and from now on my wife is going to be doign the same

    I think Samsung made all the notes they need,

    1. People don't want WP, so Samsung more or less left the sinking microsoft boat.
    2. People liked MeeGo, Samsung took it and made Tizen
    3. If you put all eggs in the same basket, disaster will cause a lot trouble, Samsung commits to multiple mobile OS.

    Nokia made all three mistakes (should I say the people from microsoft as Elop and Weber) and now Samsung is the KING.

    @_TuxUser_ I like linux too but Tizen and Meego don't seem to be going anywhere yet (Been a few years now). There isn't a huge creative team behind it. I hope someone picks up the open source remains of WebOS again or we get another linux based Open OS Like Ubuntu Phone OS.

    Samsung is king? sure! King of cheap plastic phones and copying others designs. Not impressed with them. But they do make one of the best andorid phones.

    Nokia is king of caring too much, They test the hell out of their phones , care about build quality, and treat their workforce fairly etc. That being said they sometimes have a tendency to be stubborn and old fashion and seem to be behind of the curve at times. I hope either windows phone works out for them or they do more then one platform.

    Coming, coming, coming, gone. Didn't even noticed it. Let's just wait for WP9.

    You can find spellchecker plugins for Opera, Chrome and Firefox. This is just friendly advice.

    I know it comes down to the carrier, that doesn't matter. Microsoft still gets bashed for being no different than Android devices when it comes to previous models being abandoned, the how and why don't really matter when the net result is the same.

    With Windows Phone, it's not up to the carrier at all. Microsoft controls WP, same as Apple controls iOS. The only mobile OS that the carriers actually have control over, is Android. Microsoft made the decision not to "upgrade" WP7 phones to WP8 themselves.

    Other people have pointed out quite the opposite, apart from a few tech-heads that know their OS's, the vast majority of phone buyers buy a PHONE, bigger screen, slimmer cases, better cameras, etc. If samsung had pushed WP7 at the same rate as Android the take up would have been higher.
    ...
    Nokias has a lacklustre image problem, not its actual technical capabilities, the phones are pretty good but when compared next to a SGS3 people go for that. If the SGS3 had WP7 on it then it would sell like hot cakes too
    ...
    If Nokia can pull themselves up by the bootstraps and get back in the game with some game changing hardware then WP8 will be carried along for the ride, if that happens you will see Samsung also start to push some WP8 handsets too

    Not true, in the UK some updates are blocked at carrier level, specifically Orange not allowing an update that will allow tethering, whilst "3" network does allow it.

    if Nokia's new phone has the build quality of the 3310, then it should be a bit hit.

    personally i thinks that the current nokia phones are very big and bothersome...most smartphones are the same way...4inch is a limit of how big they should be for comfortable use and one finger navigation
