In spite of all the problems and the controversy associated with it, the Unlocked iPhone 4 has managed to sell as much as 3 million units already just about under a month from its release. Selling at around one million units per week, this handset is sold out in almost all places. However the problems have been plaguing the company pretty badly. CEO Steve Jobs decided to directly address this issue in a press event where he acknowledged the issue but at the same time doled out certain figures which were aimed at proving that the iPhone 4 was selling marvelously irrespective of the problems that they were facing.
Apple has said that the iPhone has hit the level of three million customers and they have also gone to the extent of saying that this is the foremost gadget they have ever made. If that was not enough, they have also said that this is the top ranked smartphone in the market. Well, from the reports that we have got, this is pretty different as consumer reports have slowly been pulling their recommendations off and the reports are not very encouraging. Apple had come up with a slew of software upgrades for the iPhone 4 unlocked handset which they said would help the phones which would lose its reception when one would hold the phone in a certain way. There has also been some research done on the part of some private agencies and what they found was pretty bad for the iPhone. It has been found that one would need to either place tape on their palms or at least get bumper cases for their phones to be able to operate it.
Judging by the amount of money that one pays for this phone, it is expected that they will get the best performance. For its defense, the phone is pretty well loaded with features and we hope they can turn it around.
