Weekend watch: Smoked variants for France and South Africa

 I don’t know why but this campaign is irritating me now. Yet it continues under new names in France as a ‘speed test’ and in South Africa as a ‘Lost to Lumia’.

Sure. Go ahead. Keep pushing this and ignoring other neat things about WP Lumia, Nokia. Tell me more about the wireless syncing. No wires. Just automatic. Show me the facebook album. Show me again, the people hub. Let’s do some demoes of Nokia Drive. ETC. Show me other things people might be interested in. Not just it doing a bunch of same things their phones can do but faster.

It’s all fun and all seeing people amazed at how quickly it’s doing these same set of actions, but seriously there’s other things you should be promoting. Whilst all this is happening are we actually even seeing the steps of what’s happening anymore? No. We’re just seeing the tops or the sides of phones and then finally someone saying ‘Done’. What’s the point. What’s the actual message?

Be a little bit more imaginative guys.



Those white Purity headsets are looking pretty slick though.

Cheers  Daniel Johansson for the tip!
