Nokia picks on the Apple iPhone

Apple is also best known for their simple, witty and sometimes trashy commercials. Steve & Co. has been banking on the Mac vs. PC crusade for years and have made dozens of commercials about it.

Now, with the release iPhone and their venture into the mobile market, Apple is up against the bigger giants of the cellphone industry. And on the top spot, Nokia.

Round one, in early September, when Apple slashed the iPhone by $200. Nokia puts an ad on Google with this headline.

Round two, the recent commotion about Apple’s fierce battle against customers trying to unlock their iPhone got Nokia to put out posters stating “The best devices have not limits. Phones should be open to anything.

Nokia Unlock iPhone

Rightfully so.

    I don’t like Steve Jobs and Apple’s or any company’s way of promoting their product by sending out negative messages to a competing product.

  2. Reasons why the Apple iPhone sucks

    Fingers constantly smudging the screen. Yes, we’re sure the touchscreen UI is wondrous, but watching video on a screen covered in fingerprints… great!

    It’s pretty big for a phone – bigger than the Treo 750 and the BlackBerry Pearl anyway.

    Do people really want One Gadget to Rule Them All. We quite like having a phone and an MP3 player and a camera. And the iPhone’s 2MP camera doesn’t exactly thrill us.

    As Nokia commented: What, no 3G?

    Steve Jobs, you are a fricking tease. And stop reinventing stuff. And get a new outfit already.
