  • Apple Holding iPhone 4 Press Conference Friday


    Apple will finally address the iPhone 4 dilemma in greater detail this Friday in a scheduled press conference. While much is not yet know about the event, it will take place in Cupertino and will focus exclusively on the iPhone 4 and the lingering reception issues related to the "Death Grip" phenomenon. First reported by the Wall Street Journal, late Wednesday Apple informed the media of the press conference which will formally commence on Friday, July 16th at 10:00 am PST.

    Apple offered no further details beyond that, but given the events of the past few weeks, it’s likely we’ll be hearing quite a bit more about the iPhone’s reported reception problems and Apple’s plans to address them.
    In recent days, Apple has endured hellish media treatment born of the company's seeming hubris in the face of growing consumer calls to do something - anything - to more formally and progressively acknowledge the antenna issues that have plagued the device since its release last month. While it isn't yet known for certain that Apple will issue a massive recall of the iPhone 4, some are assuming the the seriousness of a formal press conference is the obvious set-up for such a substantial announcement.

    But don't count on it.

    Yesterday, we reported the calculations of Bernstein Research analyst Toni Sacconaghi who placed the total cost of a full product recall to Apple at an estimated $1.5 billion, although subsequent estimates have placed that figure just beneath 1 billion.

      Analyst Claims Design Fix for iPhone 4 Signal Issue Being Deployed - Mac Rumors

      Analyst claims that apple has told the manufacturer to....

      Apple has created "a design fix for the iPhone 4 that more adequately insulates the transceiver," said Rodman Renshaw analyst Ashok Kumar, who spoke to the company's manufacturing partners.

      Apple has told its manufacturers to alter the iPhone production process to include an internal component that will insulate the defective antenna connection that has disrupted the phone's signal reception, said Kumar. This internal bumper will give Apple a non-cosmetic solution and will presumably avoid the need to change the appearance of the phone


      I think this is tomorrows announcement!

      so how did they survive prior to 2007 when the first iPhone was released?

      This is the same "analyst" that in the past has said:

      1. iPhone coming to Verizon (on 3 different occasions)
      2. iPhone getting an 8MP camera
      3. Steve Ballmer presenting in WWDC
      ... the list goes on.

      He started "covering" Apple sometime last year and has consistently been WRONG on EVERYTHING he's said.

      We also have a thread on that particular article, but seriously, I've seen people on this forum that can barely put a sentence together that have a better track record at guessing what Apple is going to do.
