ABSTRACT
The article reports on the possible cause of the technical problems affecting third-generation (3G) iPhones. According to Richard Windsor, an analyst of Nomura, the technical problems may be the result of an immature radio protocol stack. He explained that chances are good that the problem is in the device's chipset. He added that fixing a problem that is embedded in a cell phone's chipset will be difficult without a hardware upgrade.
