Nokia pokes fun again at Samsung on Twitter while hyping up the Nokia X

Samsung announced the Galaxy S5 smartphone today, for a worldwide launch on April 11. However, it only took a few hours before Nokia started poking fun at Samsung on its UK Twitter feed.

The company's post featured an image of a Lumia device, running on Windows Phone, along with the tagline "Not The Samesung." The actual Twitter message is shown below:

Nokia is no stranger when it comes to mocking Samsung product announcements. It did much the same thing in 2013 when Samsung revealed the Galaxy S4, and hinted that the company was copying features that Nokia had already put into the Lumia lineup.

Of course, Nokia revealed its lineup of Android-based Nokia X smartphones today, and the company's main Twitter feed has been quite busy posting a number of odd messages and images that are direct responses to other comments made about the phones. Here are just a few of them.

There's nothing wrong with appealing to the "different" crowd. I recall another company with a "Think Different" campaign.

I still have a nokia with symbian as my backup phone, just in case of zombie attack. If they manage to make an Android phone as robust as they made those old symbian phones, i would by one for sure.

Well, looks like I don't need to add my 2 cents in this one afterall, I share the same sentiment as most of the users above me.

Comical considering all Nokia phones look the same, and considering Nokia struggles to sell in a year what Samsung sells in a week.

What about "Nokiapps"?!

haha, I like it. Just fun and tongue in cheek harmless stuff.

Only jobsworths and people with no funny bone would find this upsetting.

I think their twitter team is pretty great compared to other companies.
HTC also took a jab at Samsung about their HTC One Next conference a month from tomorrow.

Sour grapes for Nokia.. Samsung is beating them at every corner and they are content with selling 3% global market share WP. Anyway, this is expected from failed and sold out company.

Even though Elop is a pretty nice guy, he was there to gut the company so Microsoft could buy it. Also, Windows Phone is the fastest growing mobile OS in Europe.

Elop was brought into the board of director to prepare the company to sell it. Nokia was already in a tail spin. Elop brought them out with the Lumia line.

And cashed $25,000,000 from Nokia.... no bad, no bad at all.

Would you people stop it with that crap. If this was the case then the previous Blackberry CEO was a Trojan meant to downgrade the company right? You guys are pathetic...

you guys are being arses. the only thing samsung created was galaxy brand with huge marketing campaigns and pouring money into it. people buy because other people buying it. HTC creates better phones but they are barely surviving. LG cell phone market is alive because of google and nexus series. Nokia is and has always been mainstream cell phone manufacturer. Android is popular. OK granted but Nokia's Android UI in my opinion is much better than goofy touch wiz with water effects.

Your denial does not change the fact that Samsung is far successful that crap Nokia brand. Nokia had its helm day but lost it since advent of smartphone era. Samsung success has something to do with Marketing but which company does not do marketing. If this makes you any consolance about Nokia being not very successful then good for you. what your opinion is does not matter as what matters is, people buy in to Samsung much more than they even think about Nokia. Good old Nokia has long been dead and symbian was their last glory days.

Crap nokia brand? I can say nokia and everyone thinks of a well built, indestructible phone. Nokia is very successful for supporting a platform in its infancy, and we can see even more growth with them supporting a well known platform like android.

You seem to be thinking a lot about a company that is crap and dead according to you. U mad bro?

I don't really think they have much room to be picking. They're selling crap with no built in storage, for around the prices of something that does.
