Nokia CEO Stephen Elop throws an iPhone on Finnish TV

Will replace it with a Lumia

WINDOWS PHONE MAKER Nokia's CEO Stephen Elop chucked an iPhone on a live Finnish TV programme as he tactically dodged questions about the firm's future smartphones.

Elop appeared on a live TV show on the MTV3 station in Finland, and given the Nokia CEO's appearance, we're assuming that it isn't a Finnish version of the Jonathon Ross Show.

Still, we must admit, it's not a bad watch - in this instance, at least. When quizzed by the presenter as to when Nokia will be announcing the rumoured Lumia 928 handset, Elop went off on a tangent about the Lumia 620, which somehow resulted in him throwing an iPhone. You can watch this sequence in the video below, courtesy of WMPoweruser.

The iPhone belonged to the presenter so we're pretty sure that Elop won't be asked back as a guest again anytime soon, despite promising to replace the Apple smartphone with a Nokia Lumia Windows Phone handset. We're assuming that this won't be the Nokia Lumia 928.

While Elop was too wary to talk about the Lumia 928, the online rumour mill certainly isn't. The handset is expected to arrive on US network Verizon as a slimmed down version of the Nokia Lumia 920.

According to The Verge, Nokia will switch out the Lumia 920's polycarbonate casing for an HTC One style aluminium body, which will house a 4.5in OLED display and an 8MP Pureview camera with both LED and Xenon flash. According to the rumours, the Nokia Lumia 928 will feature the same processing power and Windows Phone 8 operating system as its chunky older brother. µ
