Nokia and RIM Respond to Apple's Antenna Claims

Apple 2

awyeah (70462) writes "In response to Apple's press conference, where videos of a few devices were shown losing signal bars with a tight grip, RIM and Nokia have both taken shots at Apple. RIM's co-CEOs say that Apple's claims "appear to be deliberate attempts to distort the public's understanding of an antenna design issue and to deflect attention from Apple’s difficult situation." Meanwhile, Nokia, noting that they are pioneers in antenna design and were the first company to bring to market a phone with an internal antenna, prioritizes "antenna performance over physical design if they are ever in conflict.""

Apple's has always preferred 'shine' over performance. Why are they trying to hide something that's directly in line with their policies? Apple's response is foolish in this case.

antennas... patents? (1)

This makes one wonder if recent patent lawsuits included anything about antenna tech. Especially nokia has been researching cellular antennas and their controller software for decades and must hold some very potent patents on the issue. Was antenna fiasco caused by apple using inexperienced engineers trying to design around patents?
