After Nokia announced their new flagship device, the Lumia 920 last week, the Finnish company released a video showing off the device new “revolutionary” camera system that features optical image stabilization (OIS). However, after the video was released, some found it to good to be true and began to look further into video. The Verge took the video and slowed it down and exposed the fact that Nokia used a professional camera, inside a van to capture what it claimed was footage shot with the Lumia 920.
This “gaffe” was an embarrassment to Nokia who immediately followed up with an apology, citing that a disclaimer should have been posted on the video, informing watchers that this is what the Lumia 920 “can” do. They even followed it up with a new video showing the device’s real camera at work.
Now in an effort to clean up its image and restore customer’s faith in the company, a Nokia Ethics and Compliance Officers is investigating as to why this mishap happened in the first place. There are one of two things we can expect to happen from this “investigation,” someone is going to lose their job because without a disclaimer, this is consider false advertising or two, absolutely nothing as this “investigation” is purely for show as a way to get the proverbial monkey [hating customers and critics] off their back.
Will this situation cause Nokia’s Lumia 920 to fail, probably not, as a very small minority probably knows about it, but it may prevent that some of that small minority to consider something else. On the flip side, this may be Nokia’s “Antennagate,” which barely affected Apple.
