Nokia exec talks trash to Samsung via Twitter

Nokia will likely be talking about their next Lumia smartphones in their just announced press event in New York City on September 5. While we are still a few weeks away from that press conference, that isn't stopping Nokia's recently appointed marketing head from taking on the world's current best selling mobile phone maker Samsung.

Chris Weber was previously the head of Nokia's North American operations before being promoted to his current gig as executive vice-president of sales and marketing. In a Tweet late on Tuesday, Weber minced no words when he wrote, "Samsung take note, next generation Lumia coming soon."

Weber calling out Samsung is significant in two ways. The first, of course, is a way to tease the rest of the world about what Nokia has in store for the next wave of Lumia smartphones, powered by Microsoft's Windows Phone 8. The other thing that's interesting is that Weber is calling Samsung out specifically in his note. Up until just recently, Nokia sold more smartphones than any other company in the world for over a decade. That changed earlier this year with Samsung overtaking Nokia as the world biggest seller of mobile phones.

That only makes September 5th even more interesting as Nokia prepares to wow the world with their next Lumia device and Microsoft shows off more of Windows Phone 8.
