Nokia may be struggling to produce a high-end device to compete with the iPhone and various Android phones, but at least you can't accuse the Finnish giant of a lack of trying when it comes to marketing. The company is currently pushing its Nokia E7 smartphone to the masses, and one of its bus stop advertisements includes a full working demo of the E7 to play with.
Spotted by our curious eyes in George Street Sydney, near Town Hall station, the bus stop includes the traditional advertisement promoting the Nokia E7, but has a cut out section that houses a full, working device. In our brief play, the demo phone couldn't make calls but most other aspects of the phones operation, including playing games, typing and browsing through the menus were all available.
We suspect it won't be long before this is vandalised or stolen, but credit to Nokia for trying something different.
What do you think of the E7 advertisement? Would having a play with one of these waiting for the bus tempt you to consider it as your new phone? Let us know in the comments below!
