OMG, Here We Go Again!

Leaders are targets for criticism.

Apple’s iPhone 4 hit the stores this week and already controversy permeates the blogesphere surrounding it’s antenna problem. Why is it that people love to write about and read about Apple’s flaws?

Critiques require context and comparison

I have seen many reports about how if you hold the phone in a particular way the signal strength is reduced and how calls get dropped. What I don’t see is a balanced comparison of iPhone 4’s signal strength and calls dropped compared with that of the  HTC Evo 4G and Droid Incredible, the Nexus One ,or a Blackberry Bold. Here’s what a real comparison looks like.

I don’t know if it will turn out that the complaints are isolated or whether Apple will have to fix the antenna by  recall or by software upgrade. What I do know is that once again Apple has a marketing success on its hands (reportedly 1,500,000 sold already) and respected bloggers such as Walt Mossberg say that iPhone 4 is “Top of Class” with the only reason he can’t recommend it is because of the AT&T network.
