Steve Jobs has magically asserted that just 0.55% of iPhone 4 users have issues with their new Apple device. And Whoopi Goldberg could be one of those “minuscule” population of iPhone users who got a bad iPhone.
Speaking at the ABC’s ‘The View’ show, Goldberg complained that her new iPhone had problems that went far beyond just issues with the antenna. Claiming that the iPhone would not receive emails or calls and would die frequently, a frustrated Goldberg said she smashed the iPhone on the sidewalk.
Goldberg has been an Apple fan who has seen no problems with her older iPhone or iPad. While it is possible that hers was a rare event, the timing of her revelations are interesting considering that the Apple PR machinery is already hard at work in trying to redeem the brand value that the company has apparently lost with the recently noted iPhone 4 problems.
