>Iphone Antenna issue in Nokia N97 mini:Apple claims


>

Reacting to the reception problems in Apple’s latest version of iPhone, iPhone 4, Apple chief executive Steve Jobs asserted that reception issues were a problem shared by the entire smartphone industry, naming specifically rivals Research in Motion, Samsung Electronics and HTC Corp.

However, while Apple CEO didn’t mention Nokia per se, the mobile phone giant issued a statement, claiming that antenna performance has always been a high priority for Nokia. “Nokia has invested thousands of man hours in studying human behavior, including how people hold their phones for calls, music playing, Web browsing and so on. As you would expect from a company focused on connecting people, we prioritize antenna performance over physical design if they are ever in conflict,” the company said.

However, now Apple’s Smartphone Antenna Performance page has added a video which shows that Nokia N97 Mini, when held a certain way, also shows significant signal loss. Hold the phone in a weak signal area, Apple claims, and it can drop from 7 to 2 bars.

Apple’s Smartphone Antenna Performance page claims. “Every smartphone has a cellular antenna. And nearly every smartphone can lose signal strength if you hold it in a certain way.” To demonstrate this, the company says that it has tested iPhone 4 alongside other smartphones.
