HTC unofficially responds to being roped into the Apple “Antennagate” debacle

Apple stated on Friday that the iPhone 4 is not the only device that gets hit with a weak signal strength. Steve Jobs specifically targeted his closest competitors into his presentation: Samsung, RIM and HTC. We’ve already heard back from RIM by them stating that “Apple’s attempt to draw RIM into Apple’s self-made debacle is unacceptable.”

How about HTC. Jobs singled out the Droid Eris and said that their testing revealed the device completely lost signal by showing no bars. Although there’s no official statement HTC yet, head of Global PR Eric Lin said that “Approximately .016% of customers” of customer who have the Eris have complained about poor signal strength.

I’m sure we’ll be hearing official statements from both HTC and Samsung. They’re not one’s to sit still when a competitor knocks their products.
