The e73 ... moreYet the iphone4 is still thinner than the nokia e73. Maybe not by much, but what do you think will happen if you try to squeeze in the hardware requirements of the iphone into your e73? Do you think that your e73 would still be able to maintain it's slim figure with its internal antenna?
Let's try squeezing in these features to your e73 that requires hardware space.
- 720p hd recording at 30fps
- retina display resolution
- 3.5 display
- 32gb internal memory
- 512mb ram
- 1gz processor
- proximity sensor
- backlight camera technology
- dual mics
- more, more, more
Yes. Put all of those features in the e73 and let's see if the e73 can still maintain its slim profile. Not intending to bash your e73 here. I just want to make a point that the iphone4 has way more higher hardware demands than the e73, yet it's able to be slimmer, thx to the external antenna design.
As for its reception, it's already getting a lot of impressive reviews, although they haven't really compared it with others (minus touching that black strip of course). Regardless, it is a significant improvement from the 3gs, and that is reason enough to be happy.
51.000 returned iPhones in just 3 week!!
And that's not all! Number is growing every day!
Another world record for Apple and Steve Jobs!
Standing ovations within users and admirers. Can Samsung, HTC, RIM or Nokia do that? Nope! Apple is Unique, Glorious, Wonderful, Brilliant, Amazing, WoooW ...!
Let's hold together, hand to hand, bumper to bumper and sing a song to our beloved CEO!
Anonymous, 21 Jul 2010Exactly. 5 billion people use cell phones, Apple sold some... 50 million? Of all four versions... moreBut not all 5 billion people use high end smartphones. The iphone which ever way you look at it belongs to the High end sector and judging by the figures released they certainly have a "DEATH GRIP" on that market sector.
Sure they got a few problems with the Iphone 4 but it's all about selling phones, if you don't sell, well let's just say ask Ollie Pekka Nokia CEO about to be ex'ed.
Like I said before am Nokia Share Holders would welcome Steve Jobs to be CEO with both open arms, legs butt chicks and all.

Pretty soon Apple will buy Nokia just to shut it down and clean the market of the crap phones they make.
so the antenna complainers will no longer bother us
Keep on talking about the antenna nonsense while APPLE prints billions :
CUPERTINO, Calif., July 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Apple® today announced financial results for its fiscal 2010 third quarter ended June 26, 2010. The Company posted record revenue of$15.7 billion and net quarterly profit of $3.25 billion, or $3.51 per diluted share. These results compare to revenue of $9.73 billionand net quarterly profit of $1.83 billion, or $2.01 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin was 39.1 percent compared to 40.9 percent in the year-ago quarter. International sales accounted for 52 percent of the quarter’s revenue.
Apple sold 3.47 million Macs during the quarter, representing a new quarterly record and a 33 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. The Company sold 8.4 million iPhones in the quarter, representing 61 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 9.41 million iPods during the quarter, representing an eight percent unit decline from the year-ago quarter.

Anonymous, 20 Jul 2010In a way I'm glad that rim, nokia, htc, samsung, and motorola all reacted defensively to Apple... moreHeres another Nokia e72 at 10mm ,only .7 mm more then the iphone4 at 9.3 and no wrap around the side antenna.
So why do you think this new antenna design of apple is saving so much space to make a smartphone thinner.I'm sure nokia could make an e series at 9.3mm if they wanted to without this wrap around the side antenna idea.
Anonymous, 20 Jul 2010Iphone is always techless n hopeless, apple logo is symbol of expensive lowtech stuffcan you give an example of "symbol of expensive lowtech stuff" ?? comparing to another gadget in the same way. perhaps you just dont know about it? haha
Anonymous, 20 Jul 2010Innovators has to start somewhere or else there wouldn't be innovations. This antenna... morereally' are they still appluading OR are they saying I told you so "you should of insulated the antenna" especially as the phone will be help by a uncoverd hand.

The e73 is 1mm more at 10.2 and nokia didnt have to use that wrap around the side antenna.
Maybe the iphone4 has better reception then the 3gs when not touching that area but that doesnt mean it has better reception then any other smartphone out there.
one thing you people forget .. The sar reading on this phone has to be sky high metal strip external ..the user is the antenna ...

That issue came out along with the attenuation and yellow tint spots issue. The 4.0.1 update fixed the proximity sensor issue for me, as it now works perfectly as it should.
NEW IPHONE 4 PROBLEMS!
I heard there are new bugs with the Iphone 4's Proximity Sensor. The proximity sensor on the iPhone detects if your face is close to the screen, like it would be during a phone call. If it does so, the iPhone turns off its screen to avoid any accidental input and save power.
The proximity sensor issue manifests itself by the phone incorrectly assuming that you aren’t holding the phone up to your head and turning the screen back on. This happens in the middle of a call and often results in your cheek doing things on your phone without your knowledge.

This antenna design, although criticized by many engineers, is also applauded by some engineers. It's a good start for Apple. And if there's anyone in the business who has the money and resources to pull this off EVENTUALLY, it would be Apple. None of them have the balls to go for this design despite all the benefits it brings, because none of them can afford to gamble. Well Apple can. And this little mishap will turn into another victorious leap for Apple in the future when they can make this external antenna design work. While others will be stuck with their internal antennas, leaving their phones bulky with less space efficiency for internal hardware.
