Apple plans press conference Friday for iPhone 4

New York Times
Following a monthlong public relations disaster stemming from an apparent design flaw in the iPhone 4 antenna, Apple has called a press conference on Friday to discuss the phone.

The New York Times and others speculate that Apple may announce a fix for the “death grip” signal-loss problem, a software update or even a plan to provide free phone cases that could mitigate the issue:

“Analysts have said in recent days that a recall of the iPhone 4 is highly unlikely. But some have speculated that the company might decide to offer free bumpers, which appear to resolve most signal problems by insulating the phone’s antenna from human contact.”
