Nokia cracks on KitKat

Even though Microsoft recently purchased Nokia’s Hardware and Services division for over $7 billion, that isn’t stopping Nokia from ribbing its larger, more lucrative competitors.
Following the news that Samsung is set to soon release a device based on Android 4.4 “KitKat”, Nokia Germany tweeted a picture of a Samsung Android smartphone snapped in half with the notation "Have a break, have a..." implying have a Nokia device instead.

Clearly, the image is making fun of Samsung and trying to bring to mind the KitKat candy bar commercials that show someone snapping one of the chocolaty cookie wafers in half. And in case you were wondering, the widely rumored “Key Lime Pie” alias for Android 4.4 was voted down because it wasn't a popular enough dessert. 

For even more amusement, be sure to check out Google's KitKat video which pokes fun at Apple and Jony Ive:

The OS should have been named something else whose name starts with the letter K.

Is that for phones with large bottoms and can't actually do anything productive?

They can shit out baby phones that will never be productive members of society.

Who cares? Does anyone care? This is the lowest form of trash talking Nokia could think up I guess, but it doesn't doesn't help anyone figure out why they should pick windows phone.

You care, or you wouldn't be getting so worked up. Easy, Google isn't your girlfriend.
