The Street reports, citing a notefrom Rodman Renshaw analyst Ashok Kumar, that Apple has come up with a “a design fix for the iPhone 4 that more adequately insulates the transceiver.”
Apple has told its manufacturers to alter the iPhone production process to include an internal component that will insulate the defective antenna connection that has disrupted the phone’s signal reception, said Kumar. This internal bumper will give Apple a non-cosmetic solution and will presumably avoid the need to change the appearance of the phone, said Kumar.
Kumar doesn’t have an extensive track record, good or bad, when it comes to Apple, but we all know that The Street is often more unreliable than not. Still, interesting food for thought. Apple, of course, has scheduled a press conference tomorrow morning at 10AM PDT to address complaints about iPhone 4 reception issues.
