RIM regrets Apple's comment on Blackberry


Toronto, Jul 19: RIM rejected Apple's claims that the entire smart phone industry, including BlackBerry shared signal reception problems like iPhone 4.

Several complaints were coming about the iPhone 4 that its signal strength were reduced when the users held the touch-screen phone a certain way, leading to dropped calls.

Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs, responding to the complaints, said that the entire smart phone industry shared such reception problems, naming specifically Research in Motion, Samsung Electronics and HTC Corp.

"This is life in the smart phone world. Phones aren't perfect. Most every smart phone we tested behaved like this," added Jobs.

RIM co-Chief Executives Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsillie said, "Apple's attempt to draw RIM into Apple's self-made debacle is unacceptable."

They also added, "Apple's claims about RIM products 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."

"One thing is for certain, RIM's customers don't need to use a case for their BlackBerry smart phone to maintain proper connectivity," stated RIM's executives.
