Samsung Responds to Apple’s “Antennagate”

Following RIM, Nokia and HTC, here’s the first official Samsung statement about reception problems shown by Steve Jobs on stage at last Friday’s special iPhone conference.

Samsung Hub reports:

“The antenna is located at the bottom of the Omnia 2 phone, while iPhone’s antenna is on the lower left side of the device. Our design keeps the distance between a hand and an antenna. We have fully conducted field tests before the rollout of smartphones. Reception problems have not happened so far, and there is no room for such problems to happen in the future.”

And another statement by Hwan Kim, vice-president of mobile communications, for Reuters:

“We have not received significant customer feedback on any signal reduction issue for the Omnia II.”


And now we have statements from each mentioned cellphone maker, I guess. Predictable.
