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:

If anything Samsung is worried about this they cant kill Nokia now and Google is going to work on Motorola wanting a return. Where does that leave Samsung, HTC, Huawai with Android? They would be dumb to think Google/Motorola doesnt eventually spell disaster for them. Samsung is making their own OS to compete with Android as a result because they see it coming. They should probably buy HP's WebOs because it wasn't bad.

And will you stop with this? It's such a hack piece of speculation you guys keep repeating. They are not going to break away from Android. And they are certainly not scared to death of Nokia. Where do you guys get this stuff? GoogleRola spells "disaster" for Samsung?!

You guys were saying this exact same doom and gloom when Amazon forked Android for the Kindle Fire tablets. Oh no, it's over for Google!! Just come on, stop.
