Nokia takes sly dig at Apple over phone grip styles

Trust the world's largest phone maker to educate us on how to hold our phone the right way.

Nokia phone grip methods

Trust the world's largest phone maker to educate us on how to hold our phones the right way. The four methods highlighted include "thumb and finger," "the cup," "the balance," and, finally, "the four edge grip," which looks marginally ridiculous since hardly anyone holds their phones that way. I apologize if you're one of the people who does.

Of course, the only reason Nokia posted a "How do you hold your Nokia?" entry on its Conversations blog Monday is probably to take a sly dig at the recent iPhone 4 antenna issues resulting in signal degradation. If that's not it, we don't know what the reason is.

Nokia also threw in some numbers, stating that more than 1 billion Nokia devices are being used today, before pulling out its trump card saying that users are free to hold their device any way they like without suffering any signal loss. Snap! You win, Nokia.
