Soon to be Extinct Nokia Newsjacks Apple's iPhone Event
Falling squarely in the "why bother" category, yesterday Nokia rode the Apple news cycle with a tweet that thanked Apple for, as Nokia UK put it, copying them with the introduction of the iPhone 5c which comes in colors. The tweet, which read "Thanks, #Apple ;)" carried an image of Nokia's colored phones under the headline, "Imitation is the best form of flattery."
Actually, Nokia, it's "imitation is the SINCEREST form of flattery" if you want to get things right. And if Apple copied Nokia then it copied every single other phone brand and, well, every other brand in every other category that makes its products in different colors.
To date, the tweet has been retweeted 32,630 times. Not bad for an account with just over 42,000 followers.
