Nokia has not been shy at launching attacks on Samsung, from welcoming them back to Windows Phone to calling the Samsung ATIV S a â€œwarm-up actâ€ to their own Windows Phone 8 handsets to be announced next week.
The latest has been a picture Nokia posted on Facebook which references a story claiming Samsung paid their $1.05 billion fine to Apple with 30 trucks containing 5c coins, with Lee Kun-hee, Chairman of Samsung Electronics, reportedly saying â€œYou can use your coins to buy refreshments at the little machine for life or melt the coins to make computers, thatâ€™s not my problem, I already paid them and fulfilled the law.â€ That story is of course false.
Nokiaâ€™s response suggests it may be better to buy a Nokia Windows Phone than support a company which infringes the trademarks and patents of others.
Hopefully Nokia has some substance to back up their bravado. We should find out in less than a week on Wednesday.
