If you want to run with the big dogs, you got to learn to pee in the tall grass! Well not only is Nokia learning how to whiz in the tall grass they are pissing on Samsung’s leg with a pretty funny jab at Android’s new OS Name called KitKat! Finally announced yesterday, Android version 4.4 will now be called KitKat and work in conjunction with chocolate maker Hershey in several promotions. In fact, it was Android yesterday that took a swing at Apple posting a video mocking Apple’s videos.

So now it is Nokia’s turn as their German division not lacking any confidence or humor posted the following picture on Twitter yesterday:

It might be that Nokia just got a bolster of confidence since Redmond Giant Microsoft is buying them out finally and Nokia head knocker Stephen Elop is now the front runner to take over the helm when Ballmer retires. Props to Nokia, that is pretty damn funny!

  1. My Wife’s Nokia 820, screen broke too easy. I hear that it is being discontinued for poor sales now.
    And a co-worker returned his Nokia 520 as defective. The carrier said “We know” and replaced it with a Samsung SG3.
    Nokia shouldn’t be throwing stones. With low sales numbers, their defective or weak products don’t get a lot of news. But word of mouth travels too.

  2. My Lumia 900 worked perfectly for 18 months. No issues and someone on eBay is happy now. Bought an International 520 and had it for less than two months. Worked perfect, but I wanted those AT&T bands. Sold it for almost what I paid on eBay (another happy buyer). Bought the 520 GoPhone as a backup phone. Works great. Battery lasts almost two weeks with WiFi on (no SIM) all the time. My first 1020 developed a problem a couple days after I picked it up at launch. Seemed to be powering itself off. Brought it back to AT&T and they replaced it without any questions. 1020-2 works perfectly. So yeah, 4 out of 5.

    The 520 may feel a little cheap in your hand, because it is. What other Smartphone can you buy outright for $99. I thought my old HTCs were solid devices, but the 900 and 1020 have a feel like no other phones I have ever handled. And when I am waiting to be served at AT&T I make it a point to handle ever single phone. I dropped my 900 a few times from a few feet with no adverse results. Sorry, but the Samsung stuff just feels cheap in my hands. If they made a WP with the best specs, I would settle for something else that felt better in my hand. In fact, that’s why I chose the Surround over the Focus.

    Nokia Care wants to know about these issues. You should let them know. And it’s nice to know that Carriers are comparing the 520 to the SG3.

  3. I really think it is hit or miss, and how it is handled by the user.
    To be fair, it was the CS representatives talking down the 520 and WP8 that made the 520 guy take the SG3.
    My wife never considered changing from the 820, and ran out the day her co-worker broke it, and used my upgrade to get another one.
    I personally have no serious brand allegiance.
    I just hate Smack Talk from glass houses.

  4. Hi JRD, I think you are wasting your breath. There are serious fanboys on this site blindly loyal to Microsoft. I’ve seen the same people that argued early on about why windows 6.5 was so great (compared to apple) because it is open and hackable (much like Android is today) completely flip opinions when Microsoft copied apple’s model of doing business. Also everyone I know that has tried a nokia windows phone (albeit only three) have returned them within weeks of owning them. None complain about the software only the issues that the hardware has and lack of major apps (there is always at least one major app missing for them). That being said, I spent some time at AIO (At&t new prepaid carrier) and played with a Lumia 620. Holy crap that is quite a nice phone for $50 off contract. I want to buy one just to give Microsoft a shot. What little I played with it I really like the interface.

  5. I am not a fanboy, I am an enthusiast.
    I want Windows Phone to be right for me, IDK why. Just not ready to give up on Microsoft yet.
    But incase you missed it…I am ready to buy NOW, and Windows today cannot compete with android on any level YET.
    I am willing to wait, for a short period of time, but to be honest, I am looking for how to pre-order the SNote3.
    If Nokia does not announce a TabPhone before the end of this month…I don’t know how much longer I can wait.

  6. I am not trying to change anyone else’s mind about what they Enjoy.
    I am just trying to find what is right for me.
    And I enjoy productive debates.
