New iPhone 4 design?
I traded in my first iPhone 4 due to a serious issue with the antenna, I was hardly able to place a call, which made me mad because my friend has a i4 and doesn't have the issue at all. Anywhoo, I want another one after having gone back to my 3GS. I really miss all the features of the i4. I was going to get anohter one within the next week or so until I read this:
So should I wait? What do you current i4 owners think of this?

so they stopped the production of the white, citing the color couldn't be gotten down right (which is probably initially true but i doubt it takes THIS long) and decide to work on fixing the antenna so the next wave of black phones and the white phones will be fine....
i bet they will and the white will be shortly released after if not on the same day.

I guess no one here understands how difficult it is to coat stainless steel with a layer thick enough to prevent the conductivity of a human. That's why the reported scotch tape fix doesn't work. Too thin. Anyone who believes scotch tape works probably buys extenze. Anyways, this iPhone 4 was in development for 18 months and a simple fix isn't designed in less than three months, which is how long it's been on sale.
Who knows why the white iPhone is delayed. I am guessing it's because it's absolutely hideous. As for the original posters problem, don't hold it that way.

That said, how big of a grain of salt are you guys taking this news post with?

Of course this is pure speculation, but I think if Apple were to redesign the phone, they'd lose millions of dollars in profit. I think a redesign would be very un-Apple like...I think the bumper issue was it folks. Look for a better antenna design come iPhone 5 or whatever they'll call it.

If you read the article BGR links to on MacRumors, the initial rumor comes from a high level exec at a CARRIER. Carriers say just about anything to sell a phone or down play problems devices might have. I say this is bogus, but who knows what Apple might do come end of September.
