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:

It's pretty obvious. Nokia used to make awesome phone products with the most advanced phone OS in the industry. They failed to innovate after iOS and then Android, and lost tons of customers. Nail in the coffin #1. Now they're a Microsoft company. Nail in the coffin #2. No thanks, I'll shop elsewhere.

Its too bad for all those Nokia employees that are going to lose their jobs. If only they had adopted Android instead of the turd from Redmond.

If they had adopted Android, they'd be like every other Android phone maker who isn't Samsung.

That is actually, a very good point. They also wouldn't have those $250 million infustions from Micro$loth as well...

Non-Samsung OEM's are still in better shape than Nokia was before the selloff.
