Nokia telling fibs in 920 commercial

6 September 2012

Oh dear. Nokia have been promoting their 920 smartphone and boasted about the new technology in it. Sadly for them, they've not covered their tracks enough and have been rumbled as telling porky pies.

Nokia uploaded a video of two cyclists, showing off the phone's 'PureView' technology, which basically eliminates shaky hands and provides a smoother video.

However, a reflection in the video shows that the footage was actually recorded by a professional camera crew, not by the smartphone itself. Nokia have held their hands up and said that the video was not recorded using its smartphone and changed the description on the demonstration.
