If you’re interested in the official line from Apple, they’ve already posted an information page about the antenna announced on their website. You can see just how annoyed Apple is with this whole antenuation problem, they’ve released videos showing similar problems on the BlackBerry Bold 9700, HTC Droid Eris, and Samsung Omnia II. Every single phone shows signal strength dropping considerably when held with a “death grip.”
It’s kind of hilarious, but it’s also a giant FU to the whiners complaining about the attenuation problem. It made me smile a little bit. But it doesn’t end there. Apple’s also created a webpage showing off their Antenna Design labs, and test facilities, along with a video of the whole shebang. If you weren’t convinced about their testing before, you might be now.
It doesn’t get much more transparent than this.
