Attenuating the antennae with your hand is NOT the same as the iphone 4 issue. The signal on the 4 is not attenuated cause your hand is blocking it. It attenuates because the two antennas are shorted. This can be done with a penny, and no hands. There is not another phone in existence that can lose signal by placing a penny, paperclip, staple, or housekey anywhere on it. Thats why this press conference is so troubling. They say they have been working non stop on this, but a simple 25c coat with a clear polymer on the antennae would solve the problem. Unbelievable. And before anyone says "just return it", take that passive aggressive BS elsewhere. If you don't want to stand up for yourself and demand your product be fixed, don't get mad at those who have the balls to.
