    First of all, it isn't 'alleged', it is proven and even Apple admits to a problem, though has shown the general attenuation is not limited to their models.

    Secondly, what exactly did they provide as a solution that the other companies did not? The attenuation caused by squeezing the phones will happen regardless of there being a bumper or case. All of the models they are showcasing have a built in case, that being their shell. The bumpers and cases Apple is providing provide no more protection from a tight grasp at the bottom of the phone than the shells built into the other phones. What the bumper does protect from is the detuning caused by touching the antenna and bridging the gap between the two antennas. The other companies do not have this problem, as their shells prevent direct contact with the antennas. So why would they be expected to provide a solution?

    Agreed. Or something not completely clear but just slightly opaque.
