Why hate Samsung? If they have the patent for the system Apple should pay. This whole patent system is hopelessly broken. The millions upon millions they have spent suing each other is only resulting in higher prices and less development. The Apple and Samsung spat in particular is hurting both companies but Samsung likely more. Just do some cross license deals and call it a day.

This is straight from Apples website.....
"iPhone 4S is the first phone to intelligently switch between two antennas to transmit and receive, so call quality is better."
There definately not worried about a lawsuit advertising the two antenna setup.
