New iPad owners complain WiFi too slow and LTE too fast

Apple can't seem to catch a break among new iPad owners, with heat complaints being joined by feedback that the WiFi is too slow (or indeed non-existent) while the 4G is too fast. Several early-adopters have taken to Apple's support communities to voice concerns about the range of the tablet's WiFi, suggesting that it is underwhelming in comparison to where the first- and second-gen iPads could receive a signal. Meanwhile, others are discovering that an HD-capable display and fast throughput of LTE means a couple of gigabytes of 4G data allowance is easily consumed.

In the news this morning: soon you will be able to get a white iPhone 4 that also "will not track you", and Google's mind control claims an unfortunate victim.

HTC HD7 death grip response blames “inevitable” antenna shortcomings

The so-called death grip issue some HTC HD7 owners have complained about has prompted an official comment from the company, who basically reckon that any device can suffer from the way it's being held. "It is inevitable that a phone's signal strength will weaken a little when covered in its entirety by a user's palm or fingers," an HTC spokesperson told Computer Weekly.

Apple yanks “antennagate” testing reports

Has Apple decided the iPhone 4 antenna issue is all cleared up?  The company's antenna information page, which previously showed various test videos of rival smartphones - like the HTC Droid Eris, Motorola DROID X, Nokia N97 mini and BlackBerry Bold 9700 - displaying attenuation issues when held in certain ways, has been pared down to just a brief blurb on the Apple antenna design and test labs.

SlashGear Week in Review- Week 26 2010

Happy Fourth of July to readers in the US and welcome to another Week in Review! Apple announced on Monday that it had sold a whopping 1.7 million iPhone 4 smartphones in three days. I knew they would sell a lot of the things, but didn’t think it would be that many. Monday we posted up our review of the Samsung Galaxy S smartphone. We liked the device, but it had some occasional issues with CPU lag to sour the overall enjoyment somewhat.
