Okay, I've got my tin foil hat on this morning. It's all about product planning. The crush of people buying iPhone 4's this year was due to more 3G people being eligible to upgrade this year (compared to last year). They knew the iP4 would be huge. So we all get the iP4 and are a bit disappointed that this antenna design is actually a flaw. So, what will we do next year when the iPhone 5 comes out (with a redesigned antenna system)? We'll all upgrade to iPhone 5. It's kind of like when companies have 5 years worth of features built up but only release a couple each year. Put out a flawed device this year that you know will be huge and guarantee that they all upgraded to the "fixed" device next year.
