There have been news and posts all around that Apple has advised iPhone 4 owners not to hold it in a specific way to avoid any signal dropping issues. I’ve not tried the new iPhone (nor am looking forward to) but Nokia has posted a comprehensive post on “How to hold your Nokia” and they make the point absolutely clear that you won’t lose any signal, no matter how you hold the phone. Sarcasm at it’s best!
Following is the number of ways in which you can hold a Nokia phone :p

Guys, following post is no more valid. Even if you get App World on your phone, it will not connect to the server as long as you are in an un-supported country connected through an un-supported career.
BlackBerry App Worldis RIM’s official application store for BlackBerry Apps. Quite interestingly, the app store is not available in all countries. There is a list of countries that are supported and many countries are left out. The store is available in countries like United Sates, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Germany France and a few more to buy and download apps. In addition, App World is also available in some countries where people can only download Free apps. They cannot buy these apps. App World with free-apps-only mode is available in countries like China, Brazil, Mexico, Hong Kong, Thailand etc. You can view the whole list of supported countries here.
If you are not in a country where BlackBerry app world is supported, you are out of luck. You can’t download the app world from RIM’s website. Though we have a bit of a workaround for that. You can user your BlackBerry browser to hit this link : http://bit.ly/bbappsworld . Make sure you open it using your BlackBerry phone, not your PC browser to launch the installer that will install BlackBerry app world on your phone. Please note that you will not be able to buy or view any paid app but you will be able to download, use and review the free apps at least.
I have tested this link on BlackBerry Bold 9700 as well as on a Storm 9530. Let me know if it works for your or not.
Nokia announced three new phones with social networking and Internet focus. These three phones are targeted at three different markets and all three of them have a full Qwerty keypad.
Nokia C3 is the first ever qwerty Nokia based on Series 40 with a home screen access of social networking tools. Nokia C3 is a low end device with a 2.4 inch screen, wifi capability and a 2 mega pixel camera and is expected to hit the market in the second quarter of this year. Yes you can find it pretty soon and it’ll cost around EUR 120.
Nokia C6 is a symbian phone with a slide keyboard, 3.2 inch touch screen and a high class 5.0 mega pixel camera. Obviously the handset is positioned high and it will be available very soon as well. As early as early May I say. The estimated cost of the handset will be around EUR 300.
The third phone announced is an E series business qwerty phone with business customers in mind. Access to corporate email like Exchange and Lotus notes is the focused feature and the phone will be available around August 2010 with an expected price tag of EUR 240.
If it’s been a while you’ve upgraded your Nokia phone, this announcement by Nokia gives you an opportunity to upgrade to a latest handset that matches your needs and fits in your budget.
