    iPhone buzz is pretty high as of late. Multiple Phone manufactures have taken shots at Apple with marketing aimed at Apples antenna fiasco.

    But the Antenna news is over now, right?
    As it turns out, no it isn't.

    The tech world has been heating up recently with news of a CDMA iPhone that will, of-course mean iPhone is coming to Verizon. But something else has been brimming up. According to an article on Digitimes, Apple is planning on replacing the glass back n the iPhone 4 with metal that features an integrated antenna.


    The report clearly mentions the Verizon version of the iPhone, but it would be unusual if Apple kept all the other iPhone 4's with Glass backs and the 'death grip' feature. I guess Apple is wanting to replace the iPhone back because of the fact its fragile and prone to shattering, and a metallic back panel with an integrated antenna will help aid the problems that have received negative press.

    Yh lol it sure does. I'm guessing this phone will be coming out January or something tho, same kinda time frame as the iPad.

    Guess we have to wait till the iPod event, Steve Did say something about sorting the iPhone antenna out at that time?
