re: iPhone 5 May Get New Display, 'Liquidmetal'
With the signal reception issues of the latest and greatest iPhones, is Apple trying to make sure that their phones don't get reception by adding even more metal to the design? Or are they planning on using the metal case as an additional antenna surface in an attempt to gather more signal into the handset?

Andrew: with all due respect what 'signal reception' issues you are pointing out other known problem of iPhone4, which was rectified with Verizon version?
