Nokia says iPhone users are zombies in Lumia 925 ad

Nokia is latest to take a dig at iPhone users in smartphone ad

In its latest smartphone ad campaign, Nokia has suggested iPhone users are zombies.

Nokia has launched an advert for its Lumia 925 smartphone which takes a dig at Apple and its millions of iPhone users.

In the advert we see a Nokia Lumia 925 user walking the streets late at night who is confronted by numerous zombies. They are clearly all using an iPhone and taking pictures aimlessly with a flash. It seems the result of this is that the subject is turned pale faces and red eyed.

Nokia is both labelling iPhone users as braindead zombies with little intelligence, but also taking a poke at the photographic capabilities of the iPhone.

The tagline at the end reads: "The best pictures in any light. Even without the flash. The new Nokia Lumia 925."

It the latest in what can be described as a marketing war between smartphone makers which has included Samsung recently poking fun at the iPhone's lack of features and the apparent stupidity of its users.

The Lumia 925 is on sale now and offers a 4.5in screen and an 8Mp PureView camera with a Carl Zeiss lens. Nokia is also expected to announce a Lumia EOS PureView in New York on 11 July which will supposedly come with a whopping 41Mp camera strapped to it.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
