ONE OF THE THINGS that resonated with me during the launch of the Nokia Lumia is that the phone comes from a totally enormous brand. Two brands, if you consider Microsoft. And while Microsoft is often derided as a dinosaur in tech space, I think it has hit a success with its partnership in Helsinki. The Lumia 800 handset is a first generation Windows Nokia phone. As such, it is levels above the capability of the first generation iPhone that I carried around without copy and paste. And for someone working with Sharepoint or Exchange services, the Lumia will deliver collaboration in elegant and mobile ways.
The video behind the Nokia Lumia is clever and electronica. Its backing track is from Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. In the minds of Nokia and Microsoft's critics, that may be an apt title track. I like the song and I like the phone. I wonder if you can actually dislike both.
