$99 8GB iPhone 3GS for Christmas?

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on November 8th, 2009

$99 8GB iPhone 3GS for Christmas?All you want for Christmas is an iPhone for yourself right? But it’s too expensive, what with all of the other gifts you need to buy. How does an 8GB iPhone 3GS for $99 sound?

This one resides in rumor territory for now, but word is that Apple is toying with the idea of releasing the device for $99 in an effort to combat Motorola’s DROID. A cheaper iPhone 3GS is always welcomed, even if it is just an 8GB version, at least it gives users another option.

Microsoft’s Secret Courier Tablet Info Leaked

Posted in News,Rumors by Darrin Olson on September 23rd, 2009

Microsoft Courier BookletAccording to a recent report from Gizmodo on Tuesday, Microsoft is confirming rumors that it actually does have a new dual-screen tablet in the works, codenamed Courier. According to the article and a short demo video, the Courier is a real thing and is more like a “booklet” than a tablet as it folds together and has two interactive touch screens side-by-side with loads of fast functionality.

The project has apparently been kept under pretty tight wraps with very few, both inside and outside of Microsoft, with knowledge about it. In fact, rumors are that the team working on the project, led by J. Allard (a designer involved in the Zune and the Xbox) has been kept away from the main Redmond campus to help keep it secret.

Apple iPod Touch has hidden faster N Wi-Fi and space for possible cameraThe same folks at ifixit.com who tore down the newly released iPod nano from last week also got their hands on Apple’s newest version of the iPod touch and carefully broke it down as well. In doing this they found some interesting surprises.

In dismantling the iPod touch, they found a faster 802.11n Broadcom wireless chip, still inactive but bringing wireless-N in addition to the a,b and G in the touch. Chances are that some OS update, hopefully in the not too distant future, will enable this faster wireless connection.

iPod Nano with camera, FM tuner, mic, fitnessIt looks like Jobs and Apple have saved the best for last today as usual with the announcement of the new, updated 5th generation iPod nano. The new and improved nano has a host of new features including a not just a camera but a video camera, Genius mixes, FM radio with Live Pause, Voice Over and a Fitness pedometer that works with Nike.

Even with the tight-lipped Apple team we had heard the rumors that a camera was coming to the iPod and today it is finally here. Apple has implanted a video camera into the iPod nano that can record in either landscape or potrait and can record audio along with it so we’re not making silent movies here. You can then play back the video instantly and hear the audio through a built in speaker! It even comes with 15 cool-looking special effects that can be applied to the video such as Thermal, Mirror, X Ray and more.

Some of those cases sport “hand straps” however, suggesting that it will have a camera.

Following up on rumors that the new model might be delayed, Pocket-lint managed to get a Riverdale New Jersey Walmart to comment that they were expecting the “newer” iPod touch models at the “end of the month.”

Cameras ordered for iPod Touch?TechCrunch claims that they have heard evidence that the next generation iPod Touch will have a built in video camera. One of their sources in Asia says that Apple has placed an order for a massive number of camera modules of the type that they include in the iPhone.

The source says that due to the size of the order, they can only be used for one thing – the iPods. Since May it has been rumored that the iPod Touch would get a camera. When Apple does update the new iPod Touch, it seems likely that they will also upgrade the device to the more powerful processor and graphics chips that were introduced in the iPhone 3GS.

HiPhone Nano flip phoneWe’re still waiting on confirmation of an iPhone nano, so HiPhone of China decided to get the job done in true knockoff fashion. They came out with their own version known as the HiPhone Nano. It’s a flip. Take that Apple.

cect m188 puts an iphone nano in your hands

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on April 7th, 2009

cect m188 puts an iphone nano in your handsThe rumors of Apple releasing an iPhone Nano are still going strong, but they remain just rumors. You can own a miniature iPhone right now if you don’t mind that it’s a cheap Chinese knock-off. The CECT m188 clones the look and menus of the original iPhone in a package that’s just 86mm x 48mm x 11mm. Or about the size of a credit card.

The screen measures 2.6″ diagonal, and it’s touch-sensitive, so it sucks to have large fingers with this one. Using a stylus is probably best. The phone is completely unlocked and works on 900/1800/1900Mhz GSM networks around the world.

Image of 2 TB Time Capsule box?

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on April 6th, 2009

Image of 2 TB Time Capsule box?Looky here. Apple retailer ClubMac’s 500 GB Time Capsule page is currently NOT showing an image (shown here) of a 2 TB Time Capsule retail box in its “Product Detail” section. At one point, it apparently was showing such a box. Apple’s Time Capsule combination wireless router and network-attached storage drive is currently available only in 500 GB for $299 and 1 TB for $499.

It may turn out to be real. 2TB 3.5″ hard drives have recently become available, so why not? The original source of the image used on ClubMac’s site is unknown.

Next iPhone to get Internet speed boost

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on March 22nd, 2009

Apple teams up with Adobe for iPhone FlashThere have been some rumors about the upcoming third generation of the iPhone, but now those rumors are shifting toward a serious Internet boost in the next model. Apparently someone in the know has stated that the new iPhone’s connection will be “significantly faster” but does that refer to the WiFi or the cellular connection? Maybe both.

Some experts suspect that the tip refers to a boost in Internet speed, with the addition of speed-doubled 7.2Mbps 3G. Which make sense, since Infineon will be releasing a new 3G chip this year. Also, AT&T has been testing their 7.2Mbps 3G service for awhile and that should roll out this year as well.
