Nokia Makes Fun Of The iPhone’s Connectivity Issues

by Ferman Aziz

Did Steve Jobs really think that Apple will get away with brushing off the iPhone 4’s connectivity issues by asking users to “hold it right”? If they did, well, looks like not only complaining users but cell Phone giant Nokia won’t let them off the hook so easily.

Considered the makers of the most durable and connectivity friendly cell phones of all shapes, sizes and kinds, Nokia posted a note on their blog asking “How do you hold your Nokia?” followed by a step-by-step instructions on a variety of grips such as “the cup,” “the balance” and “the four edge grip.” The post then proceeds to take a punch at Apple and the iPhone by saying:

One of the main things we’ve found about the one 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.

Ouch! But it doesn’t end here. The post concludes by Nokia saying:

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?

The post maybe in jest on the surface but makes very obvious the absurdity of Steve Jobs’ response to a major issue with a phone that promised the world to its customers but ended up with Apple officials explaining disgruntled users how to hold their phones the “right way”. A little ragging was definitely due and Nokia is not holding back.
