It doesn't seem to matter how many industry heavyweights line up against them, Apple is steadfast in its determination to keep up its drive by smear job on competitive smartphone antennas. The latest victim of Apples ire is the Motorola Droid X which they demonstrate falls victim to the same “death grip” reception problem as the iPhone 4.
Apple might think they are “educating” consumers with these clips, but a closer inspection of the Droid X shown in the video demonstrates a phone being held in a rather unnatural fashion, with the hand in question trying intentionally trying to cup the bottom. Everyone holds a phone differently, we get that, but the hand in this clip is practically covering up the microphone.
We have no idea where Motorola located the antenna on the Droid X, but can we all just agree that putting an antenna on the side of a phone with no protection, regardless of the manufacturer is a bone headed idea and just move on?
