Moto Droid X not immune from antenna issues
Apple escalated its war on its competitors' antenna claims with a new comparison against the Droid X. Despite Motorola claiming in a full page ad that the Droid X's dual antennas made it immune to reception problems, Apple shows a tight bottom grip killing the phone's signal entirely. The phone's signal was one of the weakest of the group if measured solely by its bars, as it was already down to three bars before the grip.
The feat may be more difficult to replicate in casual use both due to the internal antenna and the phone's much larger dimensions than its Apple counterpart. Apple's demo nonetheless may serve as a source of minor embarrassment for Motorola, which was largely exempt from earlier comparisons. The iPhone producer has been determined to prove that its phone's problems aren't exceptional, and even after its short-notice keynote has been adding more phones in an attempt to persuade the public.
