Why?
Because if you look at it, now there's 4 antennas as opposed to 3, as there were in the iPhone 4. So basically, you have the same antennas for the iPhone 4 (Bluetooth/WiFi/GPS, and GSM. But now its bluetooth/WiFi/GPS, and CDMA) plus a fourth antenna that could be used for LTE.

1) Antenna design doesn’t work like that. You can’t just make more separations and claim it’s a better design.

2) There are only TWO antennas in the iPhone 4 GSM. One strip is a cosmetic element, so until we see a teardown there is no reason to suspect there are anymore than 2 antennas.

Trolls, there are no purely cosmetic elements in iPhone antenna design. Period. It's just antenna leg that is beyond AppleOutsider.
