Samsung Speaks Up Over Antennagate—"Reception Problems Have Not Happened"

So we've already had HTC, Nokia and RIM give us their side of Apple's odd attempt to downgrade the entire smartphone industry, now it's Samsung's turn—which says "Reception problems have not happened so far" on Omnia II.

The complete quote from Samsung, which had its Omnia II smartphone rudely thrown up on Apple's antenna presentation, follows. Samsung says the Omnia's antenna is on the other side of the phone, which presumably means only left-handed people will be afflicted. And who cares about them? [winking smiley face to all left-handed readers]

"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"

Which is basically "Leave us out of your shitstorm, Jobs." [Korea Herald via Samsung Hub]
