HTC Sensation 4G also suffers from Antennagate

Sensation-4g Remember when everyone freaked out about the iPhone's touchy antennae? And then remember when Steve and company held an event to show that other devices could potentially suffer from the same thing, too? 

Well, turns out they were right. Apparently, HTC's soon-to-be-released Sensation 4G does the same darn thing. A company by the name of Nordic Hardware ran some tests on a pre-release device and it found that it, indeed, suffers from the "death grip."

It's unfortunate for HTC to have to deal with this before the device is even released, but in a way, it's also a good thing: the company still has time to squash some bugs before the device hits consumers on the 15th of this month.

Apple surely lost a bit of sales from the whole Antennagate issue, but hopefully now because of this type of story, the people who really blew it out of proportion will lighten up a bit and just realize that maybe the iPhone 4 was a little more touchy than the last iteration. It happens to the best of companies, HTC included.
