Apple's iPhone 4 press conference has just ended. Here are some closing comments from Steve Jobs:

"...the data supports the fact that the iPhone 4 is the best smartphone in the world, and there is no Antennagate... there is a challenge for the entire smartphone industry to improve its antenna technology so there are no weak spots. So today we're going to try and take care of our customers." [Source:]

This is how Apple will take care of their customers:

-Provide free bumper cases to iPhone 4 owners from now until Sept. 30. Those who have purchased cases will receive a refund. You can apply for the cases on Apple's website starting next week.

-Provide a full refund for customers not happy with the iPhone 4

Today we will find out what Apple finally has to say during their much anticipated iPhone 4 press conference. The conference begins at 12 p.m., Central Standard Time.

Many expect for the company to finally address the antenna issues many customers are having with latest version of the iPhone.

Rumors have been floating around that Apple may recall the iPhone 4, offer gift cards or bumpers, or allow customers to trade them in for a new version. We'll have to wait and see what is actually said.
