Apple beats a dead horse by showing Droid X antenna problems

It's the start of a new week and we woke up ready to leave this antenna issue behind us. Let the customers handle it how they like, you know? Apple isn't ready for us to let it go. In attacking the Droid X, all they've really done is put the iPhone 4's antenna back in our minds.

Apple already has several video demonstrations on its website showing how the signal fades on RIM's Blackberry Bold 9700, the HTC Droid Eris and the Samsung Omnia II. The Motorola Droid X, which sold out shortly after its release, is shown to experience the same loss in quality when you hold it in a "death grip" (which is different for every phone).

The difference? For the iPhone 4 to lose signal quality, you only need your palm touching the lower corner of the phone. For the Droid X, you need to cover the entire length of the bottom. It's almost as if, you know, it was engineered for it to be difficult to cut the signal.

Check out the Apple demonstration in the video below.
