Posted in Apple,iPhone,News by Chris Weber on June 18th, 2007

Apple iPhone gets longer battery life than expected and glass face instead of plasticApple today announced that the iPhone, still slated for its debut on the 29th of this month, will have a longer battery life than originally communicated. Instead of the original promise of up to 5 hours of talk time back in January, of talk time, Apple is now upping that talk time to 8 hours. This also increases the time on other features including 6 hours of Internet use, 7 hours of video playback, 24 hours of audio playback and introduces 250 hours of standby time.

“With 8 hours of talk time, and 24 hours of audio playback, iPhone’s battery life is longer than any other ‘Smartphone’ and even longer than most MP3 players,” said Steve Jobs, in a press release. “We’ve also upgraded iPhone’s entire top surface from plastic to optical-quality glass …

Safari For iPhone Developers and Windows

Posted in Apple,Browsers,iPhone,News,Safari by Chris Weber on June 11th, 2007

Apple opens up the iPhone to developers through the Safari web browserShortly after the iPhone was announced questions rose by many about the ability to write 3rd party applications on the OS X platform similar to what is done for the Mac. In a couple of interviews Jobs let us know that OS for the iPhone would not be open to developers to the dismay of many.

Today at the WWDC 2007 Jobs released some information and demonstrations of Apple’s new Leopard OS along with news to developers about the iPhone. Opening up the platform while still maintaining a secure environment has been a challenge for Apple, but they made what Jobs described as a “sweet” compromise. They didn’t open up the OS, but will let developers build applications that run on the Safari web browser engine on the iPhone.

This will allow developers to build web …

iPhone Details Found in Sales Training Manual

Posted in iPhone,News by Darrin Olson on June 9th, 2007

iPhone Training ManualMacRumors has gotten their hands on some scans of an iPhone Sales Training Workbook with some interesting details about the upcoming iPhone release from Apple at the end of this month.

The looks like it could be legitimate and shows 13 scanned pages of functional information about the iPhone as well as some canned responses for reps to use when encountered with questions that are anticipated to be common. One of these canned comments (titled “Overcoming Objections”) has a standard response to the lack of GPS capabilities in the iPhone, to which the representative is to reply with “GPS is not part of the iPhone feature list…”. Too bad with this one, but maybe it will be there in the next generation. Some other notable “objections” were the concern people might have with the lack of a keyboard with “real” …

Apple adds 4th iPhone commercial, forgets contract

Posted in Apple,iPhone,News by Darrin Olson on June 7th, 2007

Apple added 4th iPhone commercial with no 2 year contract infoApple has added a 4th commercial to the list of advertisements for the June 29th release of the iPhone, this one titled “Watered Down” where it shows off the Safari web browser. The Safari browser will deliver a “true” web browsing experience through the iPhone which is a hard thing to come by in smart devices.

This commercial however, unlike the previous three, does not show that the iPhone requires a 2 year contract with the carrier. This led to some internet buzz speculating that Apple and AT&T may have dropped the 2 year contract requirement allowing the purchase of the iPhone outright with no agreement.

The missing text was apparently missed due to some confusion between AT&T and the ad agency making the commercials, and as you would expect the 2-year contract requirement still stands.

Who will want an iPhone?

Posted in iPhone,News by Chris Weber on June 7th, 2007

Study shows the types of people that will by buying an iPhone from AppleAn online survey recently published by Solutions Research Group shows what type of Americans will actually be interested in the iPhone when it’s released on the 29th. Once we were able to wrap our heads around the idea that not absolutely everyone will be standing in line at the end of the month to get one we were to look at the numbers.

It basically broke down to 31 year old males with an higher than average income who maybe own an iPod already and it’s certainly not limited by those already with Cingular. 38% of the people polled that were with carriers other than Cingular said they were “definitely interested” in buying an iPhone, and would have to switch in order to get the new gadget from Apple. 31 was the average …

iPhone Confirmed for June 29

Posted in Apple,iPhone,News by Chetz on June 5th, 2007

iPhone release date of June 29 confirmed by AppleJust in case you missed it earlier, three new commercials are now airing for Apple’s iPhone showing off what will likely be this year’s killer app for the masses. Unlike Apple’s “I’m a Mac and I’m a PC” ad campaign, the three iPhone clips show off the device in full and in operation answering calls, flicking between watching movies, thumbing through song files and even showing off how easy it is to find a good seafood place to eat at. The bon mot comes at the end of the commercial when the date of release, June 29, is given.

Apple will be pricing the phones at $500 for the 4GB version, and $600 for the 8GB, available exclusively through online and physical stores of Apple and AT&T.

Apple is also planning an iPhone launch for Europe and Japan in the …

iPhone rumored to release on June 29th

Posted in iPhone,News by Darrin Olson on June 3rd, 2007

iPhone release date rumored to be June 29thEngadget, being cautious with their Apple rumors, has reported from a source that three new iPhone commercials have been sent for airtime with at least one of the commercials showing a release date for the iPhone of June 29th.

The iPhone has got to be the most hyped gadget of the year and perhaps of all time, and the anticipation of its release has gadget lovers everywhere on the edge of their seats. The last reported release date we wrote about was from CNET with a June 11th date, and there’s been a couple other dates floating around since then. Hopefully this is the final as it still fits into the late June definition.

Engadget also points out that the 29th is decidedly not a Tuesday, and Apple historically has favored a Tuesday release date, but waiting for the following Tuesday …

Apple iPhone Gets FCC Approval Stamp

Posted in Apple,iPhone,News by Chris Weber on May 18th, 2007

The Apple iPhone has gotten the FCC approval to go ahead with launch Apple has announced that its iPhone has gotten the green light from the FCC to go ahead with a planned June launch according to Apple spokesperson Natalie Kerris, despite false rumors that the product will be delayed.

The iPhone was announced by Apple back in January by CEO Steve Jobs at the annual MacWorld conference. Very shortly after the announcement Apple was met with some resistance to the new mobile product due to legal issues with Cisco which after a little more than a month was resolved.

The recently FCC approved mobile phone from Apple features a full-size intuitive touchscreen interface and will download and play iTunes music as a nicely features multimedia phone. Rumors have already started about a new smaller iPhone nano type version due to …

Apple iPhone nano Patent ?

Posted in Apple,iPhone,iPod by Darrin Olson on May 10th, 2007

possibly iPhone nano type patent from AppleGadgets that need a somewhat-significantly sized interface for texting messages or dialing phone numbers can only get so small before they will just be too tiny for the average person to use, so what would a designer do when they’ve simply run out of space on the device? By looking at this patent found by Unwired it appears that Apple has an interesting solution.

Instead of trying to cram more buttons into a small area or re-purposing the same area, it appears that they are playing with idea of using both sides of a smaller gadget to make more room. By doing this Apple could potentially make an iPhone closer to the size of an iPod nano, by which they could have something like an iPhone nano.

On the USPTO web site, the proposed iPhone nano would have a full screen …

Apple iPhone to Lauch June 11

Posted in Apple,iPhone by Darrin Olson on April 1st, 2007

Apple iPhone to be released June 11The folks over at CNET seem to have gotten an exact iPhone release date of June 11th just by simply calling and asking. Apparently through calling Cingular’s customer service last Thursday they were transferred to sales and given the date. Who knew that all we had to do was ask?

We’ve known a more approximate date since the iPhone was announced at Macworld, but nothing quite this specific. This date also just happens to coincide with the Apple World Wide Developers Conference going on in San Francisco that week which adds a little more validity to the June 11th release date, which incidentally is not far off of the hoaxed June 15th launch rumored last month.

Upon release Apple will be offering two versions of the iPhone, a 4GB model for $499 and an 8GB for $599, exclusively offered …

Apple and Cisco settle on lawsuit – Apple iPhone, Cisco iPhone

Posted in Apple,Cisco,iPhone,News by Darrin Olson on February 21st, 2007

Apple and Cisco settle with iPhone lawsuit for trademark infringementApple and Cisco have reportedly come to an agreement out of court regarding the pesky lawsuit Cisco filed against Apple for trademark infringement on the iPhone name, according to the WSJ. This agreement comes after weeks of negotiations with multiple extensions granted by Cisco before Apple had to reply to federal court.

In the long awaited agreement, both companies agreed to dismiss any legal actions regarding the iPhone trademark and Apple will be allowed to use the ‘iPhone’ name for its new multimedia device along with Cisco. Both companies will be able to use the name in their products worldwide. In exchange, the companies will continue to explore some “wide-ranging interoperability between the companies’ products in the areas of security, consumer and business communications.” No more details of the agreement have been given aside from this …

Cisco Gives Apple MORE Time on iPhone Dispute

Posted in Apple,Cisco,iPhone,News by Darrin Olson on February 16th, 2007

Cisco extends more time to Apple in iPhone trademark infringementLate Thursday Cisco gave Apple one more week to respond with a formal reply in federal court to the trademark infringement lawsuit Cisco filed for the iPhone name.

Cisco had already granted Apple an extension earlier this month, but this additional extension may be further indicators that the two companies are coming to a resolution outside of the courtroom.

“Cisco is fully committed to using the extra time to reach a mutually beneficial resolution,” the company said in a statement.

This trademark dispute between Apple and Cisco comes as a result of both companies branding products with the iPhone name. Cisco had acquired the iPhone trademark through a company it had purchased in 2000. Only a month before Apple rumored to announce a much anticipated mobile phone inspired from its popular iPod players, Cisco launched iPhone branded …

Apple, Cisco Agree to Disagree on iPhone a Little Longer

Posted in Apple,Cisco,iPhone by Darrin Olson on February 1st, 2007

Apple and Cisco extend time to agree on iPhone trademarkThe saga between Cisco and Apple officially continues a little longer before going to court for the trademark rights of the iPhone. The two companies issued a joint statement late yesterday citing that they have agreed to delay law suit procedures in order to try to come to some consensus outside of the courtroom.

“Apple and Cisco have agreed to extend the time for Apple to respond to the lawsuit to allow for discussions between the companies with the aim of reaching agreement on trademark rights and interoperability.”

Apple and Cisco had been in negotiations for the iPhone trademark up until the day before Apple launched their version of the iPhone. Within a day after Apple’s announcement at the annual MacWorld conference, Cicso sued Apple for trademark infringement on the iPhone name, making it clear that the negotiations …

Verizon passed up deal for iPhone

Posted in Apple,iPhone,News,Verizon by Darrin Olson on January 29th, 2007

Verizon passed up deal with apple for iPhone two years agoVerizon recently released information that it was approached by Apple two years ago for a deal to provide service and sales for the iPhone, but declined stating that the terms requested by Apple were not mutually beneficial.

According to reports, Apple wanted to earn a percentage of the subscription fees from Verizon customers who used the iPhone as well as complete control over the development and launching of the product. Not surprisingly, Verizon had to decline the offer. “We said no. We have nothing bad to say about the Apple iPhone. We just couldn’t reach a deal that was mutually beneficial,” said Gerace, vice president of Verizon Wireless.

Maybe it was a mistake for Verizon not to make a deal with Apple since the iPhone is more than likely going to bring in a few new customers for Cingular, …
