Nokia (Microsoft) tried to troll Apple's WWDC 2014 with smart tweets
posted by Florin T. / Jun 02, 2014, 3:51 PM
Nokia’s tweets included references to Windows Phone 8.1’s Word Flow - which allegedly provides “the fastest typing in the world”, thus possibly being better than iOS 8’s new QuickType. The company also reminded us what a Lumia smartphone could do in the Yosemite National Park: take (good) photos. Another tweet allows Lumia fans to win a Nokia DC-19 universal portable USB charger by saying what made them switch, or want to switch from iOS (see the third source link below). Nokia even tweeted: "we think Joe Belfiore has better hair” than Apple’s senior VP of Software Engineering Craig Federighi (who was on stage at WWDC to talk about both OS X Yosemite and iOS 8). Well, we definitely didn't see that coming.
All in all, it's always fun to see competing companies fighting for attention, isn't it?

Microsoft not only destroyed Nokia as a legend company, but also trying to demise the respectful impression of Nokia's great name among the customers by doing like these foolish and repulsive actions

We should all move on. Your right. Away from Microsoft and Nokia. Microsoft is even working on a Nokia X2 that will have Googles play store. What's wrong with WP? Oh thats right Poor sales, which even decreased in Q1 in Europe by 20%. So Microsoft has to turn and use Android to make the needed sales and revenue. Move on indeed.

Are you kidding me? Nokia poked fun at the competition all the time with their social media outlets. It's one of the things they were known for in recent years. And it's neither repulsive nor "trolling", it's positive marketing. Apple put their 2013 event right at the long-planned Nokia World in Abu Dhabi. This is just a minor taste of Apples own medicine for their douchebaggery that year.

II like Lumias andWPindows OS, but they're trying too hard. Nothing anyone can say will convince an iphone user to switch. Iphone users are exactly like people in abusive relationships; nobody will ever be able to convince them to leave, they have to come to the realization that they made a terrible choice all on their own.

But the truth is WP is giving a quite unique experiance unlike Android and iOS that are very similar in many way and much icon based. WP is the fastest and lightest of those, and the homescreen is giving a good overview. WP are lacking apps and do not have many competitive phones in the market, though.

You mean Windows Phone right? Honestly, I don't see WP is behind IOS at all. Some of the features introduced in IOS 8 has already been included in WP, such as WorldFlow, Widgets (LiveTiles), Spotlight (Search, Cortana), Song Recognition (Search, Cortana). There might be some features that are available in WP that are not available in IOS, (like Files Management, NFC support , Bluetooth sharing) and vice versa I think you cannot go wrong with any of these 3 OSs. It all comes down to personal preference
