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.

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.

Nokia can only strike at nerves since they can't strike it in the sales.

I'm loving the Nokia ads for the Lumia 1020. Samsung lost this one. Nokia's ad was humorous, Samsung just came off bitter.

It doesn't matter what Samsung say's when Nokia devices are 10 times better.

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.

Typical reaction from Shamesung. They are just a punch of a weak ego thiefs. A low morale company without sense of humor. Nobody likes you shamesung
