Steve Jobs: BlackBerry, Android, Windows Mobile have antenna problem too

As part of Apple's iPhone 4 press conference today, CEO Steve Jobs took the opportunity to bring out a BlackBerry Bold 9700, HTC Droid Eric, and Samsung Omnia 2 and highlight each of those devices dropping from 4 to 1 or 0 bars as well.

Jobs also pointed out that the formulae used to calculate and display bars isn't standardized and everyone works out for themselves how they're going to do it. (As of iOS 4.0.1 Apple is now using AT&T's recommended formulae).

Lastly, he pointed out that Apple's highly visible black bar at the bottom left of the antenna array made the problem spot easier to find on iPhone 4.

Speaking of which, while using comedy and humility to fess up to those same antenna issues, they also took the opportunity to show off the high ratings iPhone 4 has received -- including from Consumer Reports.

iOS 4.1 features: Game Center take 2

iOS 4.1 beta comes with a newly re-designed Game Center preview. Game Center in its original form was present in all the iOS 4 betas but was removed from the general, public release. Previously all dark and blue and ovaly, that remains in the sign-up sections but the new Game Center has a background of billiard-table green and fonts -- well, that make Notes' Marker Felt seem restrained.

WSJ: Apple knew of antenna risk Apple: No we didn't, [and no recall?]

The Wall Street Journal, and specifically reporter Yukari Iwatani Kane, which have both provided information in the past suspected to have come from Apple, have an article up in which they site sources saying Apple new of the risks with their new antenna design -- something Apple denies -- and that there won't be a recall.

Apple Inc. released its newest iPhone despite internal concerns about its antenna reception, and gave wireless carriers far less time to test the phone than is typical, according to people familiar with the matter.
