Apple online store stops offering 8GB iPhone 3G

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on May 25th, 2010

Looks like it’s the end of the line for the iPhone 3G. If you’ve been perusing the Apple online store today, you might have noticed that the button to select the 8GB iPhone 3G is gone. It simply disappeared from the Apple store as if abducted by a gadget loving alien.

Normally if an item is out of stock at the Apple store, it’s listed as out of stock, but this time there isn’t any mention of what’s happening to the iPhone 3G. So our guess is that it is history. Kaput. Done.

Some apps blocked, throttled on 3G iPad

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on May 2nd, 2010

Looks like certain iPad apps are dramatically scaling back or even blocking the video altogether when on the 3G-ready iPad, according to some new owners. The YouTube app significantly degrades the quality of video, while ABC’s TV viewer doesn’t allow video at all unless via Wi-Fi. Only a few apps, such as Netflix, appear to work normally.

It was suspected that AT&T had demanded the limits, but an AT&T representative has denied the carrier’s involvement. Apparently the policies are so far self-imposed. ABC is allegedly prevented from streaming over 3G due to rights issues, while YouTube is most likely emulating the same bitrate scaling seen on the iPhone, with the larger screen size magnifying the drops in quality.

Posted in T-Mobile by Conner Flynn on March 23rd, 2010

People love their Fender guitars, but who would have guessed that the T-Mobile myTouch 3G Fender edition would be so popular that it would sell out so quickly after its release? Well, it did and now it is back.

T-Mobile will be relaunching the handset sometime next month, though there’s no word on pricing. We’re guessing the price will stay the same. If you missed out the first time, now is your chance to get one. Don’t miss out.

Netgear’s MBRN3300 comes from a collaboration with Ericsson. The unusual device can use an internal 3G modem which includes HSPA+ at about 20Mbps, while sharing that link via 802.11n Wi-Fi or through one of the four 100Mbps Ethernet ports.

Owners can also switch off the 3G, Wi-Fi or both when not in use.

HCL of India has introduced yet another netbook onto the already bloated market, with their new model, the ME 06. This one is pretty much a typical netbook with an Atom N270 1.6GHz processor, 10.1″ display at 1,024 x 600 resolution, 1GB RAM, a 160GB hard drive and Windows XP Home Edition.

Interead announces COOL-ER 3G e-readerThe COOL-ER e-reader has good looks and a decent price point, so you gotta love it. On the other hand, it lacks WiFi, which we don’t love. No one wants to use a USB cable or an SD card with this device. Luckily for all of us Interead has some changes in store for next year.

Like WiFi and deals with AT&T as well as NewspaperDirect which will grant access to over 1,300 newspapers and magazines. Now that sounds more like it.

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on October 29th, 2009

ASUS WiFi, 3G and WiMAX ebook readers confirmed for March 2010We had heard that Asus was planning some ebook readers and now some new details have emerged. Executives from the company apparently confirmed that WiFi, 3G and WiMAX versions will be announced before the year is out. The ebook readers will apparently hit carrier partners in the US and Europe in March 2010, with prices that will be “competitive” with what’s offered from Amazon and Sony.

Previous rumors have ASUS readying two different sized readers, one with a 6-inch e-ink display while a second model will have a larger 9-inch panel. WiMax seems like overkill, but Asus apparently thinks it will sell well.
