iPhone 4 signal issues mocked by Nokia

Dodgy antenna jibes aimed at Apple

As far as childish, playground squabbles and teasing goes, some of tech’s biggest players have shown that you are never too old or powerful. Nokia has been at it again today tormenting Apple about its iPhone 4 signalling issues with a ‘How do you hold your Nokia?’ feature.

Poking fun at Steve Jobs and his little antenna problem, no that isn’t a euphemism, the online Nokia feature demonstrates the numerous ways users can hold their Nokia handsets without worry of signal loss issues.

Following the launch of the Apple iPhone 4 last week, it emerged that the eagerly awaited smartphone suffers diminished and total signal loss when held in a seemingly conventional left handed manner. With the new iPhone’s antenna built into the stainless steel construct that encircles the devices body, the position of the holding hand is crucial to maintaining useable levels of signal.

Posted on the official Nokia Conversations blog, the tongue-in-cheek feature doesn’t name Apple as the recipient of a good old fashion ribbing, instead it simply takes a satirical approach to the situation the iPhone maker finds itself in.

Bringing humour to what is an essentially very serious fault, the Nokia blog states: "The key function on any Nokia device is its ability to make phone calls. After all, that's why we know them universally as mobile phones.”

"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."

Rubbing salt into Apple’s open wounds the Nokia blog adds:“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?”
