Meizu sending Nokia’s to media

Meizu are embarking on one of their questionable marketing strategies again, and handing out Nokia phones to the Chinese media.

We’ve been flummoxed by Meizu in the past, and once again they are making odd movements. This time rather than handing out the plastic case of an iPhone 5c (which they did before the launch of the first M phones), Meizu are handing out Nokia devices.

Now with the iPhone 5c, the idea was that the more expensive Apple phone and the cheaper Meizu offered the same colours from a similar plastic build, so what is this Nokia all about?

Well the model that they have chosen to hand out is a Nokia E71, a model famous for having a directional pad for navigation, a full physical keyboard and premium build. We can’t see that Meizu will launch a new phone with the first 2 features, and premium build is expected from all phones mid-range and above now.

Along with the Nokia’s the invitations comes with a date for a launch and the slogan “Still young to play big”, now this makes a little more sense especially after yesterdays rumours of a Meizu Max being launched.

The Meizu Max is apparently a 6-inch phablet with Mediatek chipset and metal body, we don’t have any clues yet at this point but whatever Meizu have planned will be finally official on the 5th September at 2:30pm.

    That Nokia is still a good phone and would probably work longer than the phone they going to release.

    And here you are promoting their brand and event. I’d say “Mission accomplished”.

    So, I’ll still be waiting for a decent phone with a BB venice-like keyboard that doesn’t cost 900$… :-/

    Are they making a Blackberry?

    Didn’t they do this before with the launch of the Pro 6?
