MobileCrunch is reporting that several users who have got hold of the just-released Motorola Droid 2 are experiencing rapid fluctuations in their antenna signal with some units dropping from full signal strength to zero all while staying at the same place. The issue is going to be keenly taken note of coming soon after Apple’s much publicized Antennagate issue. Now, it is not clear whether the problem with Motorola Droid 2 is as widespread as the iPhone 4 issue was. So one thing, we need to take this news with a bit of skeptcism (Apple fanboys would love to get this news as much publicity as possible, wouldn’t they?!). Also, it is not clear if this is just a software problem – signal bar display does not always portray the actual signal strength – or a hardware problem since the report notes that the testers “did not hold the handset the wrong way“.
Nevertheless, we will have to keep a tab on this news and see how many users actually start experiencing this issue. Are you one of the early Droid-2ers? How is the signal strength on your new machine? Write to us in the comments.
