It seems the rumors surrounding Apple products just won’t stop. Most of the rumors surround Apple’s upcoming tablet or iPhone 4G, and this time, it’s the iPhone 4G. The latest rumor hints that Apple might be working some of its magic on the iPhone’s casing, possibly giving it a touch-sensitive case, similar to the case that the Apple Magic Mouse has. It will certainly be an interesting innovation by Apple if this is true, though it does make you wonder what will happen to the sales of those third-party iPhone protector casings, wouldn’t they end up preventing the touch-sensitive casing from being used?Read more »
The new design and concept of iMac has been a real big hit. Apple introduced its first iMac more than a decade ago. And till date, it’s design philosophy remains the same: an all-in-one computer that is powerful and beautiful as well. The new 27 inch iMac, which was released in October 2009 has a LED-backlit display, with edge-to-edge glass that surrounds it around the edge of the aluminum enclosure. As a result, all one sees is nothing but a full display from one corner to the other which looks stunningly beautiful.
Now what if Apple decides to design the next-gen iPhone 4G to look like an iMac? Sounds cool? Here is how it will look like.Read more »
As you probably already know the iPhone 4G is one of the most highly anticipated devices which seems set for a launch in 2010, however many people are overlooking the fact that some carriers are struggling to offer 3G connectivity in areas, let alone 4G.
Currently if you are in a good area for 3G connectivity you can receive up to 14.0 Mbit/s on the downlink and 5.8 Mbit/s on the uplink, whereas when 4G is rolled out it has a theoretical speed of 100 Mbit/s in the downlink and 50 Mbit/s in the uplink .
Personally if carriers offered a solid 3G connection even half of their maximum speeds this would be more than sufficient to many, therefore what is the point of offering 4G connectivity if decent coverage is unlikely.
Therefore I thought I would ask customers what they would prefer, would your prefer patchy 4G connectivity or consistent stable 3G connectivity?Read more »
ts more rumours galore at the moment with the iPhone 4G. Previously speculations have included the proposed release date of iPhone 4G being May, however now more rumours are coming into existence about the actual product.
Robert Chen, an analyst at Goldman Sachs, told Bloomberg that the next iPhone will be ‘touch sensitive’, which is very similar to the Apple’s Magic Mouse. He also hinted about a 5 megapixel camera, which doesn’t sound surprising, especially as they want it to be comparable to the Nexus One’s camera. However, the part which we were more interested about was this touch sensitive concept which iPhone are rumoured to be integrating into their next generation mobile phone.Read more »
When it comes to rumours, Boy Genius Report always seem to have some great, reliable sources. I'm not sure where they've picked these sneaky contacts up, but I sure wouldn't mind flicking through their phone book! The latest leak they've picked up on comes from an Apple connect that they say has never "steered us wrong".
Here's the low-down on the fresh details they've acquired.
It's powered by an incredibly fast ARM CPU
The tablet's multi-touch gestures are "out of control."
It runs on the iPhone kernel.
The internal model number is K48AP.
There hasn't been an updated iPhone OS build because there's too much tablet-related code/references in the OS and Apple obviously didn't want that to leak. Oh dear.
The tablet is basically an "iPhone on steroids."
So there you have it. Or at least the rumour concerning whatever "it" turns out to be. An iPhone on steroids? Not sure that's enough for me to be honest. I was expecting the next iPhone to be an iPhone on steroids, I wanted this one to be a tablet on steroids!
Still, rumour and speculation only at this point. Until the end of the month at least, anyway.Read more »
Remember the first ever Apple iPhone 2G that had many features that excited us at first, but then all of a sudden Apple came out with the 3G that was very good, then there is the present 3GS with many more features that really did get us on the edge of our seat, well there is a new accessory for the first-gen iPhone 2G.
This new product is called the “G-Fi”, a simple chunky box that adds Wireless GPS to the iPhone, it is pretty similar to that of Mi-Fi that will create a Wi-Fi hotspot, and the only difference is that the G-Fi does not actually pipe in the internet.
This new product is $100 and will support up-to 200 devices that have Wi-Fi, you do need an app that is specific to this device and the iPhone 2G, this app is called Navmii and will set you back $33.
So if you prefer the iPhone 2G because it is simple and do not wish to spend loads on the iPhone 3GS version would you consider buying the G-Fi?Read more »
