The nickname given to the scandal surrounding the release of Apple's iPhone 4 in June 2010, and the alleged reception issues that arose from holding the phone the 'wrong way'.
Shortly after thousands of iSheep
s complained about the problem, Steve Jobs
responded by offering all iPhone 4 users a free carry case, and also accusing virtually every major mobile phone manufacturer of making phones with poor signal as well, and that 'Antennagate' was not unique to Apple.
These manufacturers, including Nokia
, RIM (Blackberry
) and Samsung
refuted these claims, and told Apple to go fuck themselves.
Meanwhile iPhone 4 owners still believe they own the coolest gadget on earth, despite the fact that once they pick the phone up they lose the ability to call/text anybody, and are already eagerly waiting the release of iPhone 5.
First there was Sachsgate, then Bloodgate, and now Antennagate.
