Apple posted Droid X and Nokia N97 Mini Antenna Issues

Apple is indeed dragging everyone into the smartphone antenna hell! During Apple’s iPhone 4 Press Conference Event, Steve Jobs showed us video on how other smartphone on market now all have similar antenna issues like iPhone 4 did, they further pushed it by posting Droid X and Nokia N97 Mini video too.

Why Apple do this?

I kind of understand why Apple want to do it, imagine if you are the kid that was blamed on not passing the exam, and was punished by the world school, but the whole class did not pass the exam too, won’t you want to drag them in too? I know it is not the best example, but it is kind of what Apple is doing. But have you all realise something? No one in the world cares about how poorly Nokia, Motorola or HTC antenna did, Apple iPhone is already dominating everyone’s mind that it is only Smartphone that people care, whether how good or how bad.

Check out the Video posted by Apple:

Apple released 16 July iPhone 4 Press Conference Video

Apple have released their 16 July iPhone 4 Press Conference Video to the web and public! Not only that they have released video of it, they also launched new pages of iPhone 4’s Antenna and the Design and Lab Test.

Apple is very honest to the users, saying that iPhone 4’s Antenna is a physical issue and cannot be solve by Software updates, but they also let everyone know that this issue is not iPhone 4 only issue. This is a issue for lots of smartphone out in the market, not only smartphone, phone with antennas.

Apple giving out Free Case

To solve this antenna issue that got out of hand, Apple have decided to give out iPhone 4 Bumper Case/3rd Party Case to all iPhone 4 users, including those who have already bought one(they will be given full refund). This is a good news to everyone, as I am sure most iPhone users have case or at least wants to buy a case to protect their iPhone.

Apple’s iPhone 4 Antenna Page, shown us how this Antenna Death Grip happens to other smartphone like BlackBerry Bold, HTC Droid Eris, Samsung Omnia II and iPhone 3GS!

Although iPhone 4’s Antenna Issue can be most easily seen due the external antenna’s design, many iPhone 4 owners report better call quality and lesser drop calls compare to iPhone 3GS.

Apple’s Antenna Design and Test Labs

Apple also show to the world their state-of-the-art facilities for their Antenna design and test labs. They looks really complex and really impressive. Honestly it reminds me of Professor X’s Cerebro.

Quite similar right? I can say that Apple’s Test Lab really looks very impressive, and hope that they will do a better job on their iPhone 5 and hopefully solve the Antenna Issue, which no Smartphone Manufacturer have solve.
