Wozniak on iPhone 4: “It’s like the AT&T dead zone has been extended”

In the run up to Apple's iPhone 4 press conference tomorrow the last thing they needed was more bad publicity about the fourth-gen smartphone's poor antenna performance.  Unfortunately, hot on the heels of Bloomberg's report that a senior engineer warned Apple management back in 2009 that the iPhone 4's design would cause signal problems, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has waded in with a little criticism of his own.  Asked about his own iPhone 4's performance, Wozniak said his own casual testing suggested that the smartphone's problem "only occurs in some places" and that it was "like the AT&T dead zone has been extended with this new phone."
