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 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.
