IPHONE 4 Antenna

(From Cynopsis)

APPLE has yet to release any official IPHONE 4 sales numbers as of Sunday evening, but the company was forced to deal with a controversy about the unit's internal antenna right out of the gate.

If you hold the phone in a certain way, grabbing it by the lower left hand corner, you may end up covering up both sides of the tiny black strip responsible for picking up signals from cell towers, thus cutting down reception significantly.

Apple's answer to the issue? -- "Don't hold it that way."

A better suggestion is to buy a case for the phone, which most users do anyway.

The incident should prove to be a boon for case maker manufactures, at least.
