    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?

    That's pretty funny! I really like what Nokia and Samsung have brought to the mobile market and I can see this being a rivalry that goes for a good long time.
