OK, this is not too good for the Redmond team. A brand new ad for the just released Nokia Lumia 920 running Windows Phone 8 has a guy – “Ben” – with the Lumia, going up against an Android phone.
They both take a video of the soccer dad’s “child” playing soccer and the Nokia Lumia trounces the Android phone in this “Meet Your Match” campaign for Windows Phone 8.
So far so good? Not really.
The problem i s that the Android phone shown appears to be a 2 year-old HTC Inspire sold in Europe and Canada running Android OS “GingerBread”. In a market where a few months can spawn a new generation of devices, it is way behind current Android phones.
Some comments by YouTube viewers:
The Lumia 920 probably is the best camera on a phone ATM , but the HTC Inspire is like 2 years old, they should have used a newer phone for this video
Why are u not using the latest android phones like htc one x+. It’s only a publicity stunt. So stop kidding
The phone used was my first android phone. It is a HTC Desire HD that is running Gingerbread. If they did a comparison between a lumnia vs s3 or nexus4 or droid dna. The camera on the android would be way better
MS and Nokia, really! Comparing yourself to 2 year old technology of the company who changes faster than anyone? You just hit the new low!
Lol lol lol Well put that 920 against my s3 blow it out of the water
OK then, the moral of the story is: Apples to Apples because your viewers know the difference. Is this comparison fair?
