Clearly Motorola and Nokia have an ax to grind. How else would one explain these recent decisions? A few days ago, Nokia announced it's planned an event that is scheduled for Sept. 5, 2012, and not too long after that, a Nokia exec taunted Samsung about the first line of Lumia Windows Phone 8 based smartphones. But now we Motorola also announcing that it is keeping an event on the Sept. 5, a bold slap in the face of Nokia and Microsoft.
What make this even more interesting, is the fact Motorola seems to be saying 'hey, our event will be the main one for the day, we're not going to be overshadowed, our Android based product will beat your Windows Phone 8 product.' It's like Beavis taunting Butthead, more childish than little children playing in mud.
Nokia's event will take place in Finland and also in the United States. The company is expected to unveil a duo of Windows Phone 8-based Lumia smartphones, and possibly a Windows 8 tablet. Nothing much is known about the event. However, one thing is for certain, this is Nokia's biggest attempt yet to woo consumers and get them pumped up for Window Phone 8 and the Lumia devices that it will roll on. Failure to attract any meaningful attention would likely see the Nokia bottoming out earlier than expected.
Motorola on the other hand, is aiming to take some thunder out of Nokia's announcement with a possible unveiling of the Droid RAZR HD, along with a tablet, all running the latest Android OS - Jelly Bean. There might be other surprises too, but we doubt whatever Motorola has planned would excite us more than what Nokia is gearing up to do.
However, despite both Nokia and Motorola gearing up for a potential showdown, only one thing will possibly be on the lips of everyone when it launches - and that is the iPhone 5. Whether it be for good or worse, everyone will be talking about the sixth generation iPhone, which is expected to debut at a Sept. 12 event and will certainly put a lot of pressure on both Nokia and Motorola to try and hit a home run.
