The antenna and reception issue with latest Apple iPhone 4 seems to have given a shot in the arm for its mobile competitors, which are brutally bitten by Apple’s incredible sales. So Nokia, the de-throned king of Smartphone market will not let this opportunity pass.
As iPhone4 users are complaining about the poor reception of the device while holding the Smartphone in some position, the Nokia official blog, Nokia Conversations, on Monday sought to make fun indirectly to Apple’s suggestion without even mentioning the iPhone 4.
Indirectly referring to this clarification, the official blog of Nokia said:
“We’ve been looking around and noticed there are many ways to hold your Nokia device. Whether you’re left-handed or right-handed, there’s no shortage of ways to hold your phone.”
At the moment, Apple successfully sold 1.7 million units of the new iPhone on its first week. But sill, the reception issue had brought some sort of tension for the company, which even issued a clarification in that regard.
Further, the blog mentions four defined ways of utilizing their cell phones. However, it concludes by telling that Nokia users can ignore all the defined ways of holding a mobile phone. Hold the Nokia devices in different position and still there won’t be any signal degradation.
“The key function on any Nokia device is its ability to make phone calls. One of the main things we’ve found about the 1 billion plus Nokia devices that are in use today is that when making a phone call, people generally tend to hold their phone like a…. well, like a phone. Providing a wide range of methods and grips for people to hold their phones, without interfering with the antennae has been an essential feature of every device Nokia has built,” the blog boasted.
