Motorola's NYC launch will clash with Nokia's Windows 8 shindig

Competition heats up as both firms decide to launch their next-gen devices on the same day

We all know that feeling: you spend ages planning that special day, only to have it spoiled by some sore sucker threatening to rain on your parade

Motorola and Nokia are both expected to reveal their next-generation devices at separate events in New York.

But there's one minor problem though: both will be held on the same day and in close proximity to each other - as illustrated above.

Earlier today, Motorola sent out 'save the date' invites to American journalists for September 5, which is about six days from the suspected iPhone 5 launch.

Now journalists and other important folk must decide whether they want to attend Moto's big bash or Nokia's Windows 8 shindig - eitherway, both firms must now focus on filling up their guestlists.

Moto is expected to launch two new handsets; the Razr HD and Razr Maxx HD, while Nokia is expected to introduce a series of tablets and smartphones that are powered by Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 operating system.
