Nokia uses an infographic to tout the Lumia 920's advantages

Samsung has definitely had its time to poke fun at Apple's recently announced (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?

Don't forget the enterprise

There are two aspects to the smartphone market, consumer and enterprise. iOS and Android has pretty much sown up the consumer market with Windows Phone 7 just having a toehold. In the enterprise Microsoft is preparing to fight a big battle to stop iOS and Android encroaching on its dominant position. I’m a developer in a big organisation and see iPads starting to come in but it is hard work for them as they run into security and integration issues. However, Microsoft is worried and is pushing back with Windows 8, Windows 8 RT, Surface tablets etc.
Now the key here is that with Windows 8, RT and Phone, the development platform comes together and a lot of security/integration issues go away. Therefore IT departments will like it, also hundreds of thousands of Windows developers (I’m one) will be able to transfer skills across devices.
So, as Windows 8 ripples across the enterprise a wave of Windows 8 based apps will start to flow. I think Microsoft is hoping to keep their toehold in the consumer market and then rely on this wave to push through into the consumer market. After all who wants to own 2 smartphones if there is pressure to use Windows Phone 8 at work.
The first battleground is tablets, if Microsoft start to win that one then it will move onto smartphones. So, at the moment iOS v Android v Windows is a consumer choice, but give it a year or two it may be a mixture and as soon as it is seen that Windows Phone 8 is on the up then that growth will drive consumer development efforts.
I’m planning to switch to Windows this autumn to try and catch this early.
