You have to give it to the guys over at Nokia Conversations. They have a tongue-in-cheek article in which they go into details about how you are free to hold your Nokia phones in a variety of ways without impacting signal reception.

After all, that’s why we know them universally as mobile phones (or smart phones, feature phones or mobile computers – though the same grip styles work for those, too).

Providing a wide range of methods and grips for people to hold their phones, without interfering with the antennae, has been an essential feature of every device Nokia has built.
How’s that for some light relief?
