Despite the fact that Finnish handset-maker Nokia managed quite well to keep its two forthcoming Windows Phone 8-based Lumia handsets under the wraps all this while, the details of the handsets still leaked last week --- just a few days ahead of the company’s officially-scheduled unveiling of the handsets at a Wednesday, September 5, event in New York.
In a move which marks the continuation of the incredible work which handset-maker Nokia began with the development of MeeGo operating system, Finnish startup Jolla said in a recent announcement that it intends working with MeeGo community developers for the designing, creation and sale of new MeeGo-powered smartphones.

Though the videos make no mention of either Nokia or its Lumia 900 handset, they do take a jab at the iPhone, highlighting the drawbacks in the latest model. With explicit hints that the iPhone is not as `great' a smartphone as it may appear to be, the videos seemingly try to bring across the idea that Apple treats the iPhone users more like beta testers.
Nokia is reportedly on the verge of commencing the rollout of its flagship Windows Phone handset, Lumia, in the US; kicking off its campaign in the country with low-cost hardware as well as new apps.
