Nokia officially joins the bendgate troll band with classic Nokia 3310 teaser
Better late than never, they say. Nokia has officially signed up for the list of people trolling Apple’s stowaway phablet, the iPhone 6 Plus.
Tweeting an image of the classic, legendary, iconic — what have you — Nokia 3310, the Twitter handle of Nokia Deutschland @NokiaHomebase was used to host the teaser which featured the popular #bendgate hashtag and then Nokia’s #unBENDable acronym which seems to be referring to the 3310.
LG, Sony, BlackBerry and Samsung have all taken part in the iPhone mockery exercise but it’s Asus’ that seems to stand out from the rest with a one liner that reads, “Don’t be sad…there’s always a brother to lean on”.
The origin of bendgate was from a video posted by a YouTuber who calls himself Unbox Therapy. The video came a day after some users complained of having their brand new iPhone 6 Plus deform under “little” pressure.
Apple has since called the attention of the media and has reminded everyone that events of bending iPhones were minimal, and that the company has received only several official reports.
