Nokia tells Samsung to "have a break"

0. phoneArena 04 Sep 2013, 18:35 posted on

You might expect Nokia to be a bit quiet until the proposed sale to Microsoft goes through, but Nokia apparently wants to stay in the spotlight any way it can, even if it means being negative. Nokia was obviously not all that impressed by Samsung's newly announced devices today, because the Nokia Germany account told Samsung to "have a break"...

Of course Nokia is hating. They need to realize they will never have a flagship as big as the note 3 or any note device for that matter.

These ads make a lot more sense now, has the MS Scroogled influence all over them. Reminds me of how Steve Jobs always talked about Android, you tend to focus on what gets in your way more than your own product when things aren't going the way you think they should be.

You do realize the mobile landscape back then was nowhere near as competitive as it is right now. Your comment is the same as someone saying no one could touch someone like Babe Ruth or Ted Williams. Put those two up against today's top athletes and they'd be crushed.

Gosh, typical pathetic Nokiass Fanboy. Yes, Lame Nokia Led the competition but that was so BEFORE. Now from 2011 to 2013 its been Samsung and Apple battling for top spot. And up to now, Samsung breaks record. Just look at their net income from 2011 up to this quarter. Figures don't lie mah friend! Samsung Leads now and will do for the next 20 years! hahhah

Haha, the relationship between Nokia/Microsoft and Android OEMs(mostly Samsung) and Apple is the same as Plankton and Mr Krabbs. Plankton can rant, whine, try to blow up the Krusty Krab and trying to steal customers using underhanded methods, but in the end, he just wants the same success that Krabbs has.

Also, most of the time, Mr Krabbs doesn't even give a crap what Plankton is up to (or that his advances are just so ignorable *cough*Lumia 10whogivesadamn)

Meanwhile, Mr. Krabs is a miser who demands that his employees pay him (when Spongebob started, he had to pay Mr. Krabs $100 an hour) he's cheap, doesn't give anything away for free (including napkins), is old and slow, and has a "daughter" who is somehow of a completely different species.

At least Plankton has a loving wife, and thousands of loving relatives who will rush to his support at a moment's notice.

At least he has loyal employees (ok, loyal employee).

lol, Planktons wife is a computer (Siri much), thats like touching yourself at night trying ti convince yourself you aren't lonely. Also, his loving relatives are basically idiots who can't do anything (Hello Windows 8 and Xbox One)

You're being too kind about the relatives. I would say the relatives are the thousands of fanboys who rush out to blindly defend Nokia's every flaw and block out every valid point.

Meanwhile, Squidward is the iPhone, in that he's always snobby and thinks he's better than everything else.

Patrick is BlackBerry (I'll let you draw your own conclusions as to why that is.)

You know, for as simple and unassuming the analogy looks I feel like thats spot on!

Thanks for your comment I'll be thinking about that one for a while :)

Nokia wants Samsung to literally take a break because Nokia is falling so far behind and needs time to catch up.

Ye of little faith...

Nokia got along for over 100 YEARS without being a cell phone manufacturer. Even after MS takes their phone division, I'd bet on them being around for quite a bit longer.

Desperate times call for desperate measure.

Sad to see Nokia succumbing to the pressure. Nokia has been manipulated right from the start IMO.

Nokia's waiting for formal "Adoption" by Foster father @ M$. So they have mentally taken a break and now want everyone else to do so ... Nokia is like a b@st@rd child till November when formal "adoption" is slated to go through.
