Off Topic: iPhone 4 - Great Gadget, Bad Phone?

Signal strength drops when held      24/06/10

 

I'm sure I'm not alone in seriously considering adopting new iPhone when my current handset comes up for renewal - I've so far remained loyal to Nokai - with my unfortunate N97 being the current squeeze.

The social media, the apps,  the camera, the music and creativity possibilities, all make it a more and more compelling device. Up to now, I've been resistant, but this new phone has yet again got me in a connundrum as to what to get - Android is looking pretty sweet too from a Google integration point of view - we use Google Apps extensively on Sonicstate. But Android isnt yet a creative platform in the same way the the iPhone is.

 

However, this new video shows there may be an issue that detracts from the overall iPhone experience - after all, this IS a phone too. 

Check out this piece in the Register demonstrating a possible design flaw when it comes to the internal arial and signal strength.

A) it says off topic B) iPhone is becoming a phone of choice for many musicians, due to its ability to play music and more and more to also create it.
