And there is more:
That HTC Eris that Steve Jobs tried to use as a prop to deflect attention from his crappy iPhone 4?
Well it turns out the Eris had a much lower complaint rate (HTC say that their complaints are only 0.016) than the iPhone 4 did.

“HTC must have been ticked over the fact they were used as a prop to minimize Apple’s antenna issues yesterday. They haven’t come out with a statement about this (yet), but they did have something to say to Pocket Lint. If you watch the news conference video, Apple claimed to have a really low complaints rate about the whole antenna issue. Here’s what HTC had to say about that:

Approximately .016% of customers,” Eric Lin, global head of PR at HTC exclusively revealed to us before adding that “we have had very few complaints about signal or antenna problems on the Eris.”

I have the iPhone 3G, but my daughter and son in law both have the 4.

I asked them yesterday if they have had any problems, and they said “no”!

They love theirs, and I am looking forward to getting one soon. I think the whole thing is a teapot tempest.

We are in a relatively rural area, by the way, and they travel a lot, using their phones all over the place.

IMHO, while I am an Apple Mac fan, I just wish Apple would not thread itself so thin. But that is just me.

Also I wish that there is no big deal made on the iPhone 4.

[Apple] apparently didn’t give operators enough time to test the phone.

Yeah, they were too busy "losing" the phone in Palo Alto bars...

The foxconn produced iPhone4 is the only phone with an uninsulated antenna.

My Motorola from WalMart performed everywhere I went ... never had a problem with receiving or calling.
