It is hard to ignore this report from CanalMX which seems to indicate that a new revision of Apple’s iPhone 4 will be released on September 30th. Below is the Google Translation from Spanish:
He [Marco Quatorze, Telcel’s Director of Value Added Services] also said that as of September 30 Telcel will be available in new devices that do not have the malfunction of the reception and explained that the company will have several options to make changes from one phone to another flawed not to take: “If the previous plan is over, you will need to hire a new change for iPhone 4. If, for example, already has one and take three months for payment, change the cell with a re-employment and takes into account the previous time, so instead of paying 24 months, only done in 21. “
The question of the case beyond the phone company that we hire, it is worth evaluating whether to purchase the first version of iPhone4 with all its flaws, or wait a month to be available the new version promises to vindicate the reputation of this controversial but attractive device, though no doubt there will be many users who are not willing to lose this dream so long Smartphone.
This is clearly something that needs to be clarified by Apple and we’ve reached out to their PR department for clarification.
We noted at the Antenna-gate non-issue press conference that Steve Jobs’ response to the free bumper program, which ends September 30th seemed a little ambiguous:
Connie at Bloomberg (The very same with the “Bullshit story about the antenna”): “Why Sept. 30 for case limit?” Answer from Jobs: “We just are going to wait and see, maybe we’ll have a better idea. It’s just a chance to say we’ll reevaluate it in September.”
The free bumpers w/ iPhone deal lasts until September 30th.
That sounds like they are going to make an effort to change the design by October to us. It might be subtle – something as small as a non-conductive acrylic laminate over the ‘spot’ but it seems Apple is working on something and for whatever reason, they’ve given themselves a September 30th deadline.
