A case giveaway? A recall? Duct tape? Analysts say any of those options, and nothing, is possible
By now, the entire civilized world knows that Apple Inc. has called a press conference for tomorrow, presumably to address the antenna and reception problems experienced by some iPhone 4 users.



There is speculation that Apple could announce a program to give away a $29 Apple-branded iPhone 4 Bumper case that would fix the wireless signal reduction problem. The disruption occurs when a user holds the lower left side of the phone and covers the gap in the antenna that encircles the exterior edge of the phone.

Consumer Reports recommended that Apple give a plastic-and-rubber bumper or some other type of case to iPhone 4 owners, since its testing showed that a bumper would help prevent the reduction in the wireless signal.

Consumer Reports had issued an earlier finding that it could not recommend the iPhone 4 because of the reception problem. Even putting duct tape over the gap on the lower left side can help, as can holding the phone differently, the magazine said, but it noted that those solutions put the burden for a fix on the user.
