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. 

Nokia UK 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:

Apple made a big deal out of having hardware and software using the same colours and also on how clever it was to be using a poly carbon casing. All of which is what Nokia has been doing for some time.

It is nothing new really - again and again Apple have been saying something was stupid/bad/... until they start doing the very same thing and it suddenly is not just fine but amazing and new.

I gotta wonder about the iPhone. Where is NFC, wireless charging, being waterproof and all the other things that are starting to be a standard in the industry. The only really new from Apple this time round was the finger print thing.
