    Friday? Trying to miss the weekly press cycle? That's what Conroy does every time he announces a progression of filter policy.

    Is this the first time Apple has made a press event to talk about a problem a device of theirs has?

    delay to australia due to high sales/antenna issue. Probably coat the antenna from now on ?
    it will be interesting to see apple on the back foot, even though they will BS their way through it, to keep sales going.

    All things considered, I'm just happy that they are ironing out all the bugs in the pre-release test market, before the official Australian release.

    FFS do you even read the posts that people who own the iphone4 make?

    If the thing was fucked like everyone is saying then they would be returning them in droves.... Guess what? They are not.

    Real world use is showing it is the best iPhone as a phone ever. Why would Apple have to BS their way through it?

    Hopefully after Friday, it will end the embarrassment.

    To 'save face'. The media have blown this out of proportion badly.

    Design flaw? sure. Phone killer? no way.

    They'll say there's a problem, hand out free bumpers to people who want them (or swap them out if they change their manufacturing process) and the world will be as one again.

    It's not about the reality of the problem, it's about the media beat up and public perception. This is Apple's PR working on this, not their engineers.

    Spin Doctors to placate those who are stupid enough to believe everything (blindly) that they read in places like nonews.com.au

    It's the internet. It's a train wreck at the best of times

    If Jobs fails to announce an acceptable solution, we can tell him he's holding the press conference the wrong way.

    I'll get my coat.

    I dont believe it some logoic in the swamp that is the internet !

    I am suprised it took this long to work out there is an issue with how the signal is displayed, but to think of all the testing in the filed that would have been done with the iPhone4 and apple not find out the thing has a major design flaw is beyond belief.

    I think the that that lutze states about the lack of hundreds of thousand or millions of people returning their fataly flawed iPhone4 says it all, real worl its a better phone.

    My initial thought would be delayed from high sales, my second was a question that maybe they could coat the antenna. They will be holding a press event, and will be on the back foot cause usually they are laying down the law with new products, not holding press meetings to address issues with their products. Thats not usual for Apple, is it Lutze ?

    The signal bar issue is isolated mostly/in part to the US, aka AT&T, but they can't say, look, everywhere else in the world it will work fine, just not in the US where AT&T have a titans grip.

    FFS back at you Lutze. Maybe think before you type.

    I don't want a stupid 'bumper' - ie. cheap piece of plastic covering what was meant to be a cool aesthetic and yet functional design feature.

    To arrest the slide in their share price no doubt - having a peak consumer body (Consumer Reports) not recommend it is going to have serious implications on sales.
