Nokia Lumia copies Apple iPod nano

Microsoft Nokia’s attempt to ride the coattail of today’s Apple new iPhone announcement backfires.

After Apple introduced the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s today, @Nokia_uk thanked Apple with an image containing its slow-selling Lumia phones with caption of “imitation is the best form of flattery.”

Perhaps Nokia thinks Apple iPhone 5c would copy the Nokia Windows encumbered Lumia phones? Oh wait…

Nokia Lumia copies iPod nano

Apple sold more iPods in a week than the Windows phone sold in a quarter. Surely Nokia knew nothing about either the second generation iPod nano (introduced September 2006) or fourth generation iPod nano (introduced September 2008)? Is it more likely that Apple would copy failing products from Nokia or for Nokia to copy the market leading Apple?

In case there’s any doubt look at the Nokia Lumia 800, which follows the case design and color of 2010 iPod nano:

P.S. I am assuming the products shown are 2013 Lumia devices, since the Windows Phone 7 Nokia Lumia 900 (released April 2012) was already abandoned and can’t be upgraded to Windows phone 8.

    Unfortunately, most people will believe Nokia, forgetting all about the iPod nano. Maybe Apple should do an add to counter Nokia’s misinformation?

    Ok, Nokia accusing Apple of copying colored edges is lame…
    But saying that Nokia copied Apple because they use colors is just rubbish. Apple do great designs, but they are not the almighty inventor of everything. There were colors on many objects before iPod. (You know, back then, the world was not in black and right?)

    Unfortunately, most people will believe Apple’s fans, forgetting all about the 5110 & 3310. Maybe Nokia should do an add to counter Apple’s fans misinformation?

    @Grems: so, what you’re saying is that Nokia is justified in pretending they invented colored objects and that countering this idea is Apple fans’ misinformation…? riiiight…

    Seven years before the first iphone, the nokia 1100 three color, red, green, blue and 14 before OLA alcatel …

    • Oh yes, back in the days when companies used single color (sometimes with black), Apple used 6 colors in its rainbow Apple logo: green, yellow, orange, red, purple, and blue.

      The 6 color Apple logo was in use from 1976 to 1988.

    • Hey Jåger, As mentioned, Apple iMac came out in 1998.

      In addition, try to find a reputable publication that wrote about that Nokia phone in 1998.

      There are plenty of examples for the iMac. The Nokia “evidence” so far was from Nokia’s own server, or from the past few years (due to their recent PR efforts to look “back” into the past “innovation”).
