In New Ads, Nokia Mocks iPhone

Nokia has launched a fun new web site called Smart Phone Beta Test that includes three humorous ads--Death Grip, Outside, and Fragile--that mock key issues with the iPhone. The point of the campaign is painfully obvious: Maybe if Apple actually tested their products extensively before shipping them to the public, there wouldn't be so many problems.


Here they are.


Death Grip

"You're holding it wrong. That is user error. Stop acting like a spoiled child and use the approved grip."



"The screen really washes out in the sun." "So don't go outside." "See, we have a workaround." "It's smart."



"Aw... poor baby. You know who's fragile? You are."
