Massive iPhone flaw revealed - with video

Just seen this hit the front page on Digg. I've been reading this same thing at several other sites as well. What do you folks think? Is it a real issue:

Cut and paste from the article:

Quote:
The newly released Apple iPhone 4 appears to have a significant design flaw that means the device loses network signal when you hold it in your hand.
Reports are flying across the internet that highlight the problem, and TechRadar has discovered that its own handset is badly affected by the same problem.
We found that holding the handset quickly brought the handset down from five bars of 3G coverage within our offices to limited edge or even no data network coverage at all.
But you don't have to take our word for it here's our video footage of the incident.

And here is the link to the full article for your viewing pleasure:

Yeah, think I'll go to one of the many in 4G coverage and use my Evo then ask someone how that i&*$#@ is working for them.

A phone that you can't hold to use it, now that's just priceless.

LOL!! Was that an "official" statement from Jobs? I'd like to see what Apples official recognition of this problem is.

WTF? I love how the mods freaking scavenge any news articles and fail to give credit to the one who first posted it:

GEEZ!

Re: Massive iPhone flaw revealed - with video

How could Jobs & Co. release any new model with such a flaw? Seems they try too hard to keep everything secret. Maybe by having their own wireless server, their signal was so strong that the flaw was never noticed?
