In what appears to be a jab at the iPhone 4’s reception problems, Nokia has made a post of its official blog entitled “How do you hold your Nokia?” The post details a variety of different ways you could potentially hold a Nokia phone including the Thumb and finger,” “The cup,” and the always popular “Four edge grip.”
At the end of the post Nokia says:
“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. Of course, feel free to ignore all of the above because realistically, you’re free to hold your Nokia device any way you like. And you won’t suffer any signal loss. Cool, huh?”
While not mentioned in name, the post is an obvious shot at the reception problems some iPhone users are having when holding their phone a certain way. Rumors indicate the iPhone’s reception problems may be fixed in some way soon.
