Mexican Carrier Executive Claims iPhone 4 Revision Coming By The End Of September
This week, CanalMX is reporting on the comments made by an executive at Telcel, a Mexican wireless carrier, indicating that Apple is to release revised hardware of the iPhone 4 by the end of September 2010.
The reason for the hardware revision is to address the widely publicized iPhone 4 antenna issue.
According to Marco Quatorze, Telcel’s Director of Value Added Services, the iPhone 4 currently being sold in Mexico will continue to be the same hardware that is sold in the U.S., Canada, and other countries. This device will still qualify for the free case.
However, Quatorze notes that as of September 30, 2010, which is when the iPhone 4 free case program ends, Apple will release revised hardware without the antenna trouble.
At this time it is unknown how accurate these claims are since this executive is barely connected to Apple in any way aside from the device being sold by the wireless company. It is however very likely that the executive is misinterpreting Apple’s free iPhone 4 case program end date to be something that it is not.
Personally, I’ve yet to experience the antenna problems on my iPhone 4, no matter how I hold the device. What do you think? Is there a hardware revision coming?
