    Sometimes it's funny when the underdog of the group talks smack to the other players, but sometimes it just smacks of "sour grapes." Nokia might fall into that category right now depending upon your point of view. This morning they Tweeted the above image in an attempt to poke fun at the new Android KitKat naming convention theme. As you can see in the pic, they are depicting a Samsung phone (presumably Android) being broken in half, and they included the slogan, "Have a Break, have a..." Obviously this is meant to draw attention to the old KitKat commercials in which some working folks would cheerily break and munch on a KitKat bar in order to satiate their hunger before getting back to work.

    Of course, we can't really fault them for joining in on the competition bashing. Samsung has become the king of humorous innuendo's aimed against Apple. What do you guys think? All in good fun, or just lame?

    I'll call it good fun. They are really starting to entertain me. Not the least bit interested in leaving the android community, but it is well worth a laugh.

    Would have been better if they made a KitKat remark regarding Android OS fragmentation.

    *OUCH!*

    But that would have been more: OH NO THEY D'IN'T!

    If they spent half as much energy innovating as they do talking trash they could be a great phone... Nevermind, that's not true.

    This.

    Not to mention, last time I checked, Kit Kat's slogan was GIMME a break. Not HAVE a break.

    Is that meant to be or has a translation between languages destroyed the actual slogan? Hahahaha!
