It seems to be smartphone season at this time of the year, where many of the big players have rolled out their heavy hitters, although Samsung did introduce their flagship Galaxy S3 device earlier than the rest of the pack. HTC has their upcoming HTC One X+ for the Android front in tow after announcing the new Windows Phone 8-powered HTC 8X, while Nokia just announced their flagship Lumia 920 earlier this month, with Apple lifting the veil on their iPhone 5 as well. There can only be one tiger on each mountain, or so the ancient Chinese proverb goes, which means the rest will have to settle for second, third and subsequent fiddles. How do they stack up against one another? Nokia UK has a cheeky but factual infographic that compares the iPhone 5 to the Nokia Lumia 920, and I do admit that the entire thing was tastefully done, concentrating more on pure facts instead of relying on sarcastic verbage alone.
It is very different from Samsung’s “the next big thing is already here” ad, and sports the caption “Good things come to those who wait”. The thing is, will it be able to convince fence sitters to just hold off an iPhone 5 purchase long enough for the Nokia Lumia 920 to arrive at the market? After all, it has already received FCC approval, so it should not be too long down the road. Patience, after all, is still a virtue – one that is lacking in this day and age.
