As the debate over iPhone antenna problems rumbles on, Apple appears to have removed the comparison videos of other smartphones from its website, in an apparent about turn on its finger-pointing stance.
Until today visitors to a page on the firm's US site would have found a number of comparison videos in which Cupertino sought to prove how the 'death grip' that was affecting its iPhone 4 was a common problem.
The inclusion of smartphones from firms including RIM and Nokia annoyed the competition, who were quick to take offence, and poke fun, at the claims. None of this bothered Apple though, who until last week was happy to add more phones to the "industry wide problem" list.
However, a report from influential IT consultants PA Consulting released last week confirmed that the death grip was unique to the iPhone 4. This revelation, like Apple's, was confirmed in videos, and may have been the straw that sent Apple's PR fighting camel to the osteopath.
Perhaps sensing that by now people have realised that this is just an iPhone 4 problem Apple has decided to take a different approach by showing people what its labs look like.
On the site, users can now see what sort of environment iPhones get tested in with a brief run through of its $100m antenna design and test labs.
