Nokia and RIM Answer Steve Jobs over Antenna Issue

nokia-logoMobile makers Nokia and RIM are not happy on being dragged to the antenna issue that Apple is currently trying to hurdle.

RIM, (Research in Motion, makers of Blackberry) said in a statement that Apple should take responsibility over its design decisions and should not be dragging other companies into their situation.

Meanwhile, Finland-based Nokia, said that the antenna problem does exist but insisted that their products already went through many hours of research regarding how people handle their devices so that their products can accommodate real-life usage including a variety of grips.

The answers came after Apple CEO Steve Jobs said during a special press conference for the iPhone 4 death grip loss antenna issue that such situation was “a challenge for the entire industry.”

He then went on to state that BlackBerry Bold 9700, Samsung Omnia II, and the HTC Droid Eris all suffered the same fate. However, Jobs singled out Nokia by saying that “You can go on the web and look at pictures of Nokia phones that ship with stickers on the back that say ‘don’t touch here’.”
