I just saw a channel 9 news story that the highly anticipated iPhone 4’s Australian release may be delayed. This is due to the highly publicised issues with the flawed antenna design.
There are so many reports out on the Internet that prove this issue, videos etc.
CEO Steve Jobs has reportedly said that ‘your holding it wrong’ and ‘it’s just a phone, get over it’
Now I don’t know about you. But if I had bought the iPhone 4 only to find that I cannot hold it a certain way because the signal would drop, I would be pretty pissed off.
A ‘bumper’ case fixes this issue, it’s only available from apple and it cost $30, How Convenient!!
The news story mentioned a potentially recall. This would cost apple a whopping $2Bn!!!! Their share price has also dropped by 8% since the iPhone 4’s release in the US.
I hope they recall it, that way my contract would be closer for a free upgrade by the time they get around to fixing it.
Either way I just can’t understand how a fault like this could of been missed during it’s testing. Especially for a high calibre company like Apple.
