Nokia makes fun of iPhone 4 reception issue

By : |June 28, 2010 0

BANGALORE, INDIA: The reception issue with Apple iPhone 4 seems to have given a shot in the arm for its rivals, which are bitten hard by Apple’s surging sales. And Nokia, the de-throned king of smartphone market seems to be cashing on the opportunity.

As iPhone4 users are complaining about reception issues while holding the smartphone in some position, Nokia Conversations, the Nokia’s official blog on Monday sought to make fun of Apple’s suggestion to iPhone 4 users on defining positions to use the phone, indirectly though, without even mentioning the iPhone 4.

Apple had sold 1.7 million units of the new iPhone, since its global launch last week. However, the reception issue had created some sort of a tension for Apple, which even issued a clarification in that regard.

Indirectly referring to this clarification, the Nokia blog 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."

Further, the blog mentions four defined ways of using 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 any 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.
