My sense is that the main idea behind this event is to get a bunch
of big publications and other key Apple influencers into a room to
go over the iPhone 4 antenna issue once and for all. I have little
doubt that Apple CEO Steve Jobs himself will be leading this
discussion, with other Apple executives talking as well. I also
suspect we may see some antenna and wireless industry experts to
offer their insights as well.
I was thinking the same thing yesterday, but I now have a hunch it’s going to be more — maybe a lot more — than just a defense of the iPhone 4 antenna. Sounds crazy, I know, but I think something big, or at least biggish, is going down tomorrow. This is not one of those “hunches” I get where I actually know something and play coy; I could be wrong and the thing could wind up just being 20 minutes of Steve Jobs telling us “not to hold it that way, or buy a case”. I’m betting on my hunch, though, and flying out late tonight.
