Nokia, Motorola duel on streets of Chicago
One block away from each other on Chicago's luxe Michigan Avenue shopping district stand dueling cell-phone flagships. First came Motorola's Destination Q, and now comes Nokia's flagship store, set to open this Saturday. Motorola's store is a single-purpose pop-up store meant to promote its Q smartphone, the cell-phone maker's answer to RIM's BlackBerry. Engadget Mobile found the store a bit too Q-centric: "Perhaps we didn't realize how focused it would be."
Nokia's, by contrast, is a considerably more substantial store, Engadget reports after an exclusive pre-opening walkthrough, featuring high-tech displays and LCD price tags below the phones. When the store opens this Saturday, Chicago residents and visitors will be able to see displays for Nokia's 8801 slider phone, the Vertu luxury phone line, and the N91 media-player phone, among others. "Nokia's effort wallops Destination Q soundly in every category," concludes Engadget.
Tell us which phone you find most appealing -- Motorola's Q or Nokia's new slider phone.
I find the Motorola Q is the better match for my needs.
nokia all the way
