    Signal Problems with iPhone 4

    From NYT
    Apple said that it planned to hold a news conference on Friday to discuss the iPhone 4 as concerns about problems with the device’s antenna continued to mount. Steve Dowling, a spokesman for Apple, would not give details of who would speak at the event, which is expected to be held at the company’s headquarters in Cupertino, Calif.

    The iPhone 4 has been Apple’s most successful product introduction to date. Yet problems with the antenna surfaced after the phone went on sale and have plagued Apple for weeks.

    Apple sought to address those concerns nearly two weeks ago, saying that a software bug caused the iPhone 4 and its predecessors to display signal strength incorrectly.

    But Consumer Reports on Monday called into question Apple’s explanation. The magazine said that it had tested the iPhone 4 along with other devices in a lab and determined that the iPhone 4 had a hardware design flaw. It said that it could not recommend the device to its readers until Apple fixed the problem.
