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:

Nokia makes some really nice cellphone hardware. I used to love their phones back before flip & slider phones became popular. It is too bad they put all their corporate eggs into Ballmer's basket.

They also seem to be a wee bit confused. KitKat is a name for Android 4.4. It has nothing at all to do with Samsung (yet). As I understand it the first device to get Android 4.4 will be the Nexus 5 (An LG phone) followed later by the rest of the Nexus line.

I guess that is what happens when you shove your head too far up Ballmer's ass -- you lose sight of what is going on in the world.
