The mobile war is alive and well
Nokia took a stab at Apple's
two new iPhones
today during their big reveal in Cupertino, but the joke may be on Nokia as the public poked a little fun at the Finnish phone maker's response.
Apple introduced the budget iPhone 5C and the high-end iPhone 5S today at its campus in Cupertino, California. Both phones have new color options, where the 5C features a plastic body that comes in five colors and the 5S comes in silver, space grey and gold.
decided that the 5C's color choices looked a lot like the Lumia line, and took to Twitter during the event to share this opinion.
But Nokia UK made sure not to leave the 5S out. It later made fun of the 5S' gold color via a tweet that references the TV show "Breaking Bad."
Nokia was likely just joking around while trying to direct some attention toward the Lumia line on Apple's big day, but other folks on Twitter put Nokia in its place. Many responded to Nokia UK's tweets with statements that suggest no one wants Lumia phones.
Here are a couple of responses:

If we should believe Samsung copied the iphone with their Galaxy phone then we
to believe Apple copied Nokia's phones when building the 5C.
If you don't see the resemblance between the Lumia 620 and the 5C you don't have eyes.
