Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on September 13th, 2009

AT&T halts sales of Nokia MuralLooks like those of you who picked up the entry-level Nokia Mural from AT&T got the short end of the stick. Turns out, the device only runs on AT&T’s 2G network, instead of the 3G network as promised. It was revealed by an AT&T memo screen capture, and is being blamed on a mistake at Nokia’s factories.

The devices in question will have to be sent back to Nokia for a software re-flash. AT&T will have to send the devices back to Nokia by Sept 25th. According to a spokesperson for AT&T, those who don’t want a replacement can get an alternative.

iPod Nano TV/VHS comboWayyyy back in November of 2008, we told you about the iPod Nano TV/VHS combo, which allows you to turn your old ipod nano 3g into a tiny portable television. To refresh your memory, this mini TV-set magnifies your iPod’s screen up to 2.8 inches diagonally. Your iPod connects in the back as shown.

Well, apparently this one is finally available. You can get the NanoTV 3G for about $29.50. We still think it would have been cool to slip your iPod into the VHS slot, but that’s just us.

Apple prepping less costly MacBook Air with 3G?

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on May 27th, 2009

Apple prepping less costly MacBook Air with 3G?This rumor, if true, may be a sign that Apple wants to compete with netbooks or that in this economy, they don’t think that consumers will continue to pay a premium for the Apple name in the longterm. Either way, Apple may push the cost of the MacBook Air down while extending its feature set. Unnamed sources for SiliconRumors claim that an entry-level model will push the price down to between $1,300 and $1,500, or at least $300 less than the current model. Whether this would be a smaller model or just a price cut isn’t clear.

The same tips say that Apple will add at least an option for built-in 3G for wide-area wireless and may make solid-state drives standard on all models instead of a high-end option. GPS to locate the Mac is an option but “less likely.”

iPod Shuffle 3G clone from Digitalrise has FM, looks huge

iPod Shuffle 3G clone from Digitalrise has FM, looks hugeSomebody is always cloning an Apple product. I guess Apple should take that as a compliment. Here’s a fake iPod Shuffle 3G that appears to be large enough to be an iPod nano. We aren’t sure what’s actually inside as it weighs just 14 grams.

Well, we do know that it has an integrated FM tuner with audio recording, a phone book, and an e-book reader. Which is quite a feat as it has no screen. If you want to know more, I suggest you drop the necessary $23 and try to use it with ebooks.

Colorful next-gen iPhone concept

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on May 14th, 2009

Colorful next-gen iPhone conceptPart of the iPods success is due to the number of color choices the consumer has. If only the iPhone had the same colorful options. Currently it’s only available in black or white and is in desperate need of a color refresh.

Sadly, unlike Gaming handhelds, a color change won’t result in multiple purchases by the same owner. And so it isn’t worth it for Apple to produce them. There’s also the monthly subscription fee. Still, it’s nice to see what they might look like.
