Nokia N97 Mini has antenna issues says Apple (video)

New clip shows Finnish phone losing signal

Death grip affects Nokia's phones too according to new Apple clip.

Not content with bringing down the BlackBerry Bold 9700, HTC Droid Eris and Samsung Omnia II as part of its iPhone 4 reception debacle, Apple has now decided to show that the Nokia N97 Mini suffers from a death grip too.

In a new clip posted on its official website, Apple shows the N97 Mini slipping from seven bars to two when a hand clasps the antenna across the bottom of the device.
