First look: Apple's iOS 4.2 for iPad and iPhone

http://www.appleinsider.com

Apple on Wednesday dished out the first external betas of iOS 4.2, which will debut AirPlay and AirPrint for iOS devices while also delivering a slew of long-awaited features for the iPad, including multi-tasking, folders and threaded mail. However, AppleInsider has also discovered a handful of more subtle refinements, all of which are detailed in this illustrated first look. The biggest new feature for iPhone and iPod touch users is AirPrint, which allows wireless printing via a shared printer, or directly through some HP branded printers.

BlackBerry users think Torch will fail to rival iPhone

http://www.telegraph.co.uk

A significant majority of BlackBerry owners don’t think the company’s new Torch handset will be successful, and cite the number of apps available on other platforms, such as iPhone and Google Android, as a weakness. More than a third, 37 per cent, of BlackBerry users also don’t recognize ‘Research In Motion’, the name of the company that manufactures the devices. The study of BlackBerry owners spoke to 1,024 users: when they were shown details of the new BlackBerry Torch, 54 per cent felt it was “too similar” to previous handsets. Two thirds agreed it would fail to be as popular as the iPhone 4. Of those, 83 per cent claimed that “better apps” were needed to bring Research in Motion handsets up to the standards of the iPhone. However, nearly three quarters, 74 per cent, added that they dislike touch screen handsets. Two thirds of these said the QWERTY keyboard was one of the things that had originally attracted them to their BlackBerry. The second most popular feature attracting mobile users to BlackBerry handsets was email ability. More than four in five respondents also said they thought BlackBerry’s rumoured iPad rival

Fring-Skype iPhone slanging match: Telcos v freetards

http://www.theregister.co.uk

Analysis P2P VoIP network Skype and client developer Fring have engaged in an epic slanging match after Fring's implementation of mobile-data video calling on the iPhone appeared to result in its ousting from Skype. At present Apple's own software only allows video calling on the iPhone 4 - the first iPhone to feature a user-facing cam - via the phone's Wi-Fi connection to another iPhone 4. This generally ensures decent call quality; it also placates the mobile networks, who are already struggling to deal with the surge in mobe-data demand precipitated by Apple phones (and to a lesser extent, other smartphones). Fring's app allows video calling between most smartphones over 3G mobile links as well. However, Fring makes use of other VoIP and IM networks - in particular, of Skype - to actually let its users get in touch with each other, rather as some apps will integrate different IM networks.

Skype on iPhone: Does it Save Money?

http://www.pcworld.com

Sticking it to The Man just got a little easier with Skype for iPhone's addition of multitasking support and elimination of plans to charge for calls over 3G. But can the ability to receive Skype calls any time really save you money? Let's look at the numbers and find out. For People Who Don't Talk Much: AT&T won't let you get an iPhone data plan without voice minutes, so at the very least, you've got to pay $40 per month for 450 minutes. If you're not routinely talking for longer than that, Skype probably won't help you. Still, consider having long phone conversations over Skype just to reduce the chances of going over 450 minutes. This will help you collect rollover minutes as well. For People Who Talk a Lot Things get interesting when you regularly exceed 450 minutes per month. To truly replace your expensive voice plan, you'll need both a Skype subscription and an online number (formerly SkypeIn), which any phone can call. A subscription for unlimited U.S. and Canada Skype calls costs $3 per month, and the number costs $12 for three months after a 33 percent discount for having a subscription.
