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:

I honestly am not a fan of the cross promotion Google did with this. I won't deny that it is a clever attention getter, but I, PERSONALLY, am irritated by it.

Now, many have commented on Samsung. I like Samsung hardware. I'm using a wonderful Samsung Laptop with Windows 8. It is well built and I am happy with it. BUT, much like my Samsung phone, they have went WAY to far with the bloat and customization. I had to blow my Windows Installation away and start over. I had to root and flash a GPE ROM to my S4 to really make it work like I want it. If Samsung forks Android or goes forward with their own OS, Moto can eat their lunch, because hardware is leveling out. Software is the differentiation and I think Samsung just tries to have the most, where Motorola tries to make quality features.
