According to a Mexican telco exec, Apple will release an iPhone 4 with an upgrade to its problematic antenna after its "free case" giveaway ends on September 30. "A partir del 30 de septiembre estarán disponibles ... los nuevos dispositivos que no tienen el desperfecto de la recepción," Marco Quatorze of Mexican wireless carrier …

New ipod touch announced. looks EXACTLY like an iphone 4 with a zapped phone chip!
Most likely so Jobs could prevent porn
I guess Jobs wanted to confuse iPhans about the Lemon 4 by claiming all was well, whilst giving away FREE plastic covers to keep hands away from the goods AS WELL as providing a ready identifier for Lemon 4 models.
So what, following Job's bent logic, is there to fix? Did he lie/mislead his legions of iPhans?
Now the antenna 'problem' has been fixed, what about the other numerous defects including the Bluetooth?
Did you hear about the heart-beat App that enables Jobs to determine which rates higher for an iPhan based, on heart rate: holding a Lemon or sex?
(Don't forget, iPhans, another Jobs pronouncement today)
On 30th September, Jobs will reveal Apple's new product: 31st September, iDay, the first e-day, a day only available to Apple users. This will be the annual launch day for the Pro versions of Apple kit, or as non-believers call them, the fixed ones.
If you don't have piles of spare cash to flush down the lavvy on overpriced fripperies, don't worry. In a few years time, Microsoft will roll out version 3 of December 32nd. Version 1 will have crashed beyond all recovery at about 11am and version 2 will only be available in brown and puce. But, with version 3, the rest of us will be able to join in.*
*Service patches will be released every 2 hours. For reasons of national security and to protect children, nuns and small furry animals, everything you do on an e-day will be monitored by the government. You may enjoy your e-day to an 'unlimited' extent, which is to say that the limits placed on your enjoyment are available from your e-day vendor, if you can get through to customer service (calls cost £2 per min, average wait, 3hrs, but then it is 4am in Delhi). Enjoyment beyond the limits of fair use will result in castration. You do not own your e-day, despite paying for it, and may not have a birthday upon it. 32nd December will be available for only 4 years, after which time it will be replaced by another day of Microsoft's choosing, with a ridiculous toolbar that ruins breakfast. Continued use of an obsolete e-day will lead to prosecution on copyright grounds. E-days will not be available in some rural areas, although you might get an e-hour if you are lucky. They will however, be available in Birmingham, as the government will abolish whatever scant public services still remain to fund a direct, super-fast, hard-wired e-day provision link for that city. No we don't know why either. Maybe they have a granny who lives there.

You, Sir, owe me a new keyboard. Just what I needed to get me through Wednesday.
Best strapline I can remember for a really, really long time :)
Or in English, a mere "Rumour"
>"Or in English, a mere "Rumour""
No, it's totally true, I saw it confirmed on The Register.
It does say on the Case Program that "Any iPhone 4 that has been returned is not eligible." I would bet that means they are fixing the returned ones.
