Clearly "antennagate" killed sales of the iPhone 4.

lol, true - it is amazing how for every idiot who man handles their phone and screws up the reception there are thousands of users not having a problem. Like anything related to tech giants such as Apple and Microsoft there will be people who will blow things way out of proportion simply to generate traffic and clicks on the ads. ZDNet being the best example of that - filled from top to bottom with the online Glenn Beck equivalent of IT punditry.

They're not having a problem, because they are using a phone case that mitigates the problem. The new design ( being used for the version iphone and the att iphone) fixes the problem. But the original was flawed, as is every phone. Apple's successes and failures are always magnified.
