Unless you have been living under a rock or something, you already know what Antennagate is all about. The problem came into light when iPhone 4 was launched in June of this year. It occurs when you hold your phone in a way which covers the antenna, resulting in signal loss, poor reception and dropped calls. And now the latest Android sensation of Verizon, the newly released Motorola Droid 2 falls victim to it.
Motorola has joined Samsung to pour more salt on Apple’s iPhone 4 wounds. In a new Droid X ad which appeared today in the New York Times, Motorola laid the smack-down on both Apple and iPhone 4 by taking on the whole antennagate with its new slogan “No Jacket Required”.
The folks over at BGR have found out references to iPhone 3.1.3, and the iPhone 4.0 firmware version in their server logs and they seems to be legitimate. While iPhone 3.1.3 will only be a minor release, the 4.0 version certainly denotes a major release version and we can expect it to ship with the next-generation iPhone model sometime in summer 2010. Nothing much is known about about the features that the new firmware is going to offer, but we can expect it to add alot of new features, similar to what was experienced when firmware 3.0 was released.
A Chinese site by the name of Mobile Android seems to have found first pictures and specs sheet of the upcoming sequel to the popular Droid phone, dubbed as Motorola Sholes Tablet. The leaked specs sheet looks impressive with 3.7’’ 840x485 WVGA capacitive multi-touch screen, 8 megapixel camera and HDMI output like the one in Zune HD. This combination of HDMI port + 8 megapixel camera will enable Sholes (Droid 2.0) to record high definition video, and then output it in HD 720p resolution.
