This week Apple grappled with the iPhone antenna, as NTP took legal aim at mobile heavyweights.

The iPhone 4 continued to fly out of Apple stores, even though Consumer Reports said it could not recommend the devices because of its antenna software problem. One report said Apple engineers had concerns about the issue before the phone’s release.

NTP, a US firm which won a patent case against RIM four years ago, filed suit against Apple, Google, Microsoft and other mobile majors.

Intel announced a record quarter by sales, citing strong corporate demand for PCs and servers, and forecast a bumper Q3. Rival AMD posted a much-improved result, also as a result of higher sales.

Google’s stock fell 4% after it announced a 24% rise in profit, behind analyst expectations.

Nokia Siemens Networks is reportedly the frontrunner to buy Motorola’s network business.

Nokia sold off a chunk of its recent acquisition, geotech firm MetaCarta.

China now has 420 million internet users, up from 384 million last December, but the registration of .cn domains declined from 80% of all websites to 65%.
