Nokia Ad Takes Colorful Jab At The iPhone 5 [VIDEO]

Mashable

The iPhone 5 has some nice features, but to paraphrase Jay-Z, a choice of colors ain't one.

Considering the positive reviews and brisk sales for the device, most consumers don't seem to mind that the phone only comes in white and black. But Nokia apparently thinks the lack of chromatics is a deal-breaker for some or at least a reason to take a flyer on its Lumia 920, which comes in black, white, grey, red and yellow.

Nokia exploits this color gap advantage in the above video, which makes its case in stylized animated form. Though even the least tech-savvy of your friends will probably be able to figure out what the phone with the "5" in the video is supposed to represent, Nokia's jab is infinitely more subtle than Samsung's recent iPhone 5 attack, though Samsung's is a lot funnier.
