Re: iPhone 4 recall "inevitable" as PR experts call for action
It's a real issue.
All modern smart phones have similar issues.
Apple's issue is moderately worse because the antenna is on the outside.
Apple's issue is moderately worse because of the way they handled it: Denial, Manufacturing cases before release to fix the issue and charging users $30 for it, Telling customers "You're holding it wrong", etc.
The media is blowing it out of proportion.
