Left-handed users of Apple’s revolutionary product iPhone 4 have been accusing the company of discrimination as they are experiencing problems not being faced by the apparently right-handed users.
Left-handed users normally place their hands over the iPhone 4’s antennae, which causes a drop in signal strength.
Steve Jobs, chief executive of Apple, told a MacRumors forumgoer through an e-mail that the concerned problem emerges due to user and not because of any fault in the device.
Mr. Jobs advised left-handed users that they should avoid holding the phone in that way. He added that left-handed users should learn to hold the device differently.
Advising the left-handed users, he said, “Avoid gripping it in the lower left corner in a way that covers both sides of the black strip in the metal band.”
Lefties, who are used to this type of discrimination, have urged that company to manufacture devices in left-handed versions also.
