I can't see how this antenna design is really much different than the iPhone antenna blunders.

I worked with RF for a really long time... and still do here and there in my hobby projects... seen a lot of attempts at this and none work well.
If you come into close proximity of the antenna you will detune it and cause attenuation - but I think we all get that.

Call me a party pooper but I think this has fail written all over it.
This is the issue with phones now.. they typically put the antennas for the cell radio(s) on the bottom and gps/wifi and friends at the top.

I like the phone a lot.. but I can't help but think this is iPhone all over again where it's about the form not the function.
