We all know that Apple will not launch the white version of iPhone 4 this year (and maybe it won’t launch it at all, ever).
Nokia knows it, too. And since the Finnish company and Apple aren’t exactly best friends, this is a good occasion for Nokia to indirectly mock Apple.
Nokia India says, via its official Twitter account, that you don’t have to “wait till 2011 for a white phone”, because “you can get the Nokia N8 in five brilliant colors.”
I wouldn’t call all the N8’s colors brilliant, but that’s another story. The idea is that the N8 – the “best entertainment phone”, according to Anssi Vanjoki – is available right now in silver white, dark grey, orange, blue and green.
I’m not sure how many of those who want a white iPhone 4 would go for a white N8 instead (after all, the two smartphones are really different), but we can’t blame Nokia for trying to sell its stuff, right? http://www.unwiredview.com/2010/10/28/nokia-mocks-apples-inability-to-launch-white-iphone-4-brags-about-n8s-brilliant-colors/
