Samsung and Nokia are fighting dirty on Twitter

Samsung and Nokia are fighting dirty on Twitter
Anyone who doesn't think that the competition is fierce in the smartphone industry needs only to take a look at the exchange of tweets between Nokia and Samsung's U.S. subsidiaries. Nokia apparently started the fight by calling the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch so 2013. Nokia then said that Samsung should bring out smart shoes in 2014 and included an image of what a connected smart sneaker might look like with a hashtag #TheNextBigThing?

Update*: Samsung reached out to let us know that they haven't posted such a message on Twitter and the screenshot that we posted is absolutely fake.

Obviously this message struck a nerve with someone at Samsung. Perhaps the less than successful Galaxy Gear is not something that Sammy wants to be reminded of. Whatever it was that set off Samsung, it responded by telling Nokia to do something that is anatomically not possible. The message was posted on Samsung Mobile's U.S.Twitter account and was eventually pulled, but not before 490,000 people got to see it.

And this is supposed to be the season of good will among men.

They(Pone Arena) wrote it earlier, yes, but the title stays. Right?
They should remove it together with the all BS comments , and just apologize .
But they didn't . They let all this crap to stay here, hoping it could put some bad smell over Samsung.

Samsung should stick to what they do best: manufacturing computer monitors and televisions. All they ever do now is copy and modify the designs of other more innovative smartphone companies, like Apple and/or Nokia, and then re-invent the wheel. YAWN.

Are you just came out from cave?

Using the same design again and again?

Apple more innovative? Cough! Cough! Cough!

Go back to your cave, you belong there.

I'm loving the Nokia ads for the Lumia 1020.

Samsung lost this one. Nokia's ad was humorous, Samsung just came off bitter.

Only in your eyes. Nokia devices still suck, because they are using WP. A POS OS that is so restricted and limiting.

Yes, in my eyes, but not only in my eyes.. It's obvious that you don't have a clue of what WP is capable of.. And the only way you could stand up for Samsung was to ridiculously go off point, and pathetically attack WP by bringing up some age old WP argument.. You're not having a good day, are you❔.. Well, you better recognize who you're dealing with because I don't fall for worthless comments like every one you've posted today.. I see right through you, and I know what you're trying to do.. You're playing that immature game with the wrong person..

Well, they are about to be acquired by MS, so they have to follow the example set by their soon-to-be parent. This is Nokia-soft's take on the Scroogled campaign.

You must be drunk! I have the Lumia 1520 and it is the best phone in the world :)

Its build is amazing and the OS works butter smooth.

Check out my short basic 360p youtube video of the Lumia 1520

It feels amazing in the hand. I love it!!

This article clearly shows the hatred of PA with samsung... even people are stupid enough to keep commenting against sammy after an update... it sounds like apple, nokia etc are not digesting the success of samsung... all haters of sammy and lovers of nokia, go and request your beloved to copy and use cheap plastic to be as successful as sammy.. they know they cant do anything... even apple know they cant compete with sammy so it go to its idadies and imomies to cry saying sammy stole my lunch and these idadies(icourts) says yes yes you are right in everything, plz dont cry we will punish naughty sammy... my suggestion to sammy, copy each and everything from them and beat the hell out of them...

Nokia is simply better.. Nokia devices are fun, different, and of high quality.. Samsung makes the same old boring devices over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over again..

So, Lumia devices are the best in my opinion..

No they're not just based on your opinion, whole sections of planet earth like Europe and Latin America think so as well, while not surpassing android yet iOS is out of the way.

iOS is "out of the way"? The Lumia 520 variants are the only WP phones outselling iPhones anywhere. Do you know what market share means when you are selling phones at $99 USD? Nothing, because that doesn't drive profit for innovation or sustainability.

The flagship WP8 device (The 1020, which I liked a lot) is a miserable flop, financially. The Jolla debut might have sold more, if that tells you anything. Nokia made the wrong choice, and it bet Jolla will end up proving it with Sailfish.

I find this nonsensical. what achievement do we see on Nokia so far?the pureview is great but that is just as far as it goes. the rest is just the same phone across all Lumia range. premium? that's so subjective! but I agree, smartwatch was a failure just like utra pixel in HTC One and the decry to join Android by Nokia.

im guessing you have yet to use a lumia device? clearblack techology, >60hz screen refresh rate, 4 haac mics for directional recording, assertive display, nokia suite of apps, here mapping techology, nokia mix radio, 650 nits brightness on a tablet, super sensitive touchscreen, wireless charging, nokia smart cam, dolby digital audio enhancement, nokia rich recording, nokia beamer, nokia storyteller etc. + all the camera technology (41 mp, dng raw, largest sensor size of any mobile device, loss less zoom, low light technology, OIS - moving the whole stack, 6th element lens made of glass, zeiss optics, nokia refocus - lytro like technology, large aperture etc.) are only just some of the achievements and advancements of nokia. They might not be the greatest phone business anymore but do not lie about their achievements. Please research before you comment something like that.
