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. The functionality is accomplished through a new Print Center application that is only available on iOS devices that can multitask, which means the iPhone 3G will not be able to print. For more on the printing abilities of iOS 4.2, see the in-depth AppleInsider feature Inside AirPrint wireless printing with Apple's iOS 4.2. iOS 4.2 for the iPhone, In addition, iOS 4.2 for the iPhone will debut a new icon for Apple's Voice Memos application, a new version of modem firmware, and some new font additions for the Notes application, detailed later in this article in relation to the iPad.

No iPhone? Have an iPod touch and MiFi

http://www.mirror.co.uk

3 is to sell its MiFi Wi-Fi mobile hotspot gizmo bundled with an iPod touch, to let you Skype your mates wherever you are. Is this the cheapest “iPhone” ever?

A bunch of new iPhone vendors have popped out into the open recently, including Orange, Vodafone, and even Tesco, so Three’s obviously keen to get in on the action. It’s not selling the iPhone, but the next best thing: an iPod touch bundled with MiFi mobile Wi-Fi so you can get online with it wherever there’s 3G and dial your friends over Skype.

Naturally there are some downsides to this mashup: the MiFi needs to be charged, you get no GPS, and it’s only the 8GB iPod touch, not the 64GB. But hey, if you’re planning on getting MiFi anyway (and you should be), think of it as a free iPod touch instead.

Broadband and iPhone boost Carphone performance

http://business.timesonline.co.uk

Carphone Warehouse raised its full-year earnings forecast yesterday after an unexpectedly strong 88 per cent rise in half-year profits to £75 million.

Britain’s second-biggest broadband provider attributed the strong performance to a rising number of broadband customers and strong demand for the Apple iPhone and other smart phones.

Excluding its July acquisition of Tiscali, which takes the company’s total of broadband customers to 4.1 million, it added 124,000 new customers in the six months to September 30.

Carphone plans to demerge TalkTalk, the broadband provider, and Best Buy, its retail division, which is 50 per cent owned by Best Buy Electricals, of the US, by March. The company hopes that they will create better value as separate companies.

The company has already signed up a new chief executive for the demerged TalkTalk, according to Charles Dunstone, Carphone chief executive. The new chief executive, who is currently an executive at another company, will be named next year.

Tesco to sell Apple iPhone: Price war on way

http://www.onlykent.com

Tesco have been confirmed as the next company in Apple’s move to open up its UK distribution channel by giving them the right to sell the Apple iPhone, and have it ready in the Tesco Mobile shops, which are in association with O2, before the Christmas rush in December.

This will shock Vodafone and Orange, who have also secured a deal with Apple at prices similar to O2’s, and possibly start a ‘price war’ between the two companies with the Christmas retail race already under way.

With Tesco now worming its way into the UK mobile phone market, we could potentially see a number of different tariffs available for the iPhone, having to choose from none other than 4 different deals from 4 different companies. That is all depending on if they all choose 1 tariff per phone, which is doubtful.

Tesco is also hoping to double the number of Tesco Mobile outlets by the end of 2010 to 200 stores, which is another indiction of the share of the market that Tesco want to dominate.
