Tech Trader Daily: Analyst Says Design Fix in the works

http://blogs.barrons.com/techtraderd...in-the-works/?

Quote:
Apple (AAPL) has “instituted a design fix” for the iPhone 4 that better insulates the phone’s transceiver module, according to Rodman & Renshaw analyst Ashok Kumar. He also contends the company is likely to offer free bumpers “as an intermediary solution.” Kumar said it is unclear if Apple will announce a recall.
While I wouldn't be surprised if they were working on a hardware fix/modification, it should be noted that Ashok Kumar hasn't been the most accurate of analysts in the past

and another analyst with a rather spotty record weighs in:

Quote:
50% chance: Physically modify existing iPhones (and all future models). In the best-case scenario, this could be done as a free in-store fix, probably by covering the antenna with a non-conductive coating.
40% chance: Give customers free cases, either Apple's Bumper, which retails for $29, or something cheaper
10% chance: Simply explain the issue and do nothing, a scenario Munster also sees as "unlikely."
Colorware is offering painted iPhone 4s, including the band-I wonder what they found by coating it?
