For those of you who were holding out for a potential fix of the antennagate problem, there might be some light at the end of the tunnel: Someone working for Mexican wireless carrier Telcel was quoted by CanalMX saying that Apple would release an updated iPhone 4 design by the end of next month (we’ll call it iPhone 4b). This is in line with our assumption that Apple might do so as the free bumper program ends in the September timeframe.
At the moment, we would advise caution on the accuracy of this information as this is an unofficial bit of news that was quoted, then translated… However, it is logical enough to attract our attention. As we said in our iPhone 4 Review, if you’re unsure, just hang in there – this problem will be fixed sooner or later. If you can’t wait, get a free case — or an Android phone. So far, the Droid Incredible has been the most popular iPhone replacement from what we can tell. (photo courtesy of AllthingsD)
