Nokia uses an infographic to tout the Lumia 920's advantages
Samsung has definitely had its time to poke fun at Apple's
(and soon to be released) iPhone 5. Last weekend
, Samsung released a print ad
that proclaimed "It doesn't take a genius" to select a Galaxy S III over the iPhone 5. Yesterday, Samsung got even bolder by
releasing a new TV commercial
that not only poked fun at the iPhone 5, but also the rabid fans that camp out for hours (if not days) to be the first to have the latest Apple smartphone.
Now, Nokia is having its fun in the sun with an infographic that touts the advantages of its Windows Phone 8 device --
the Lumia 920
-- over the iPhone 5. Naturally, Nokia points to a number of Lumia 920 highlights including wireless charging and the ability to use the touch screen with gloved hands.
So what do you guys think? Does Samsung or Nokia make a better case in countering the iPhone 5 juggernaut?

WP7 apps will run on WP8, so I have no idea who got "burned". Are you talking about WP7 devices only getting updated to WP7.8 and not getting updated to WP8? The reality there is nearly all the features that make WP8 what it is require hardware that WP7 models do not have. Android 4.1 and iOS 6 might run on old droids and 3Gs phones, but that doesn't mean it SHOULD be does it? Don't you think iPad 1 owners got "burned" by not being able to install iOS6 on their few year old device? WP7.8 is getting most of the WP8 features that those hardware handsets can support.
You fail to realize that the real appeal to WP8 is the fact that people who currently use the Microsoft ecosystem of products will have WP8 simply extend that further. Someone who uses Windows at home (and/or work) and also has a W8 tablet, xbox, and windows 8 phone, will be able to utilize great syncronization via cloud services across devices.
You say you don't care about any new features from other phone makers, yet I bet if iPhone 5 came with wireless charging or a an even better camera than it will, then you would be talking it up like the next hot shit wouldn't you? It is ok to be a fanboy, so long as you can admit to it.

I have a phone that's 1.5 years old, it never got upgraded from Android 2.2. Granted with Android I can, and did, put a different ROM on it, but the idea that not going from 7 to 8 is a crucial, MS-only issue is false.
The only real issue I have with the lack of an upgrade is that it's the second generation in a row where they are skippign old hardware, but I suspect it will be the last.

I doubt it.
