White iPhone 4s spotted shipping to Belgium

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on April 26th, 2011

Looks like some White iPhone 4s are already hitting retailers around the world. And it is about time. That’s what the photo suggests. Belgian retailer, Van Roey, says that it has also received its first shipment, as shown above. The company says it is starting to sell them, although shipments are limited to addresses in the Benelux area for now. Lucky buggers.

So it would seem that white iPhone 4s are pretty much guaranteed for an official launch on April 27th, just like we had heard. The hardware is already in Best Buy retail systems, and it was even put on sale in the UK last week, prematurely. The white phone should be available through most carriers, AT&T and Verizon included. Are you getting a white iPhone?

To refresh your memory, for $169.99 you get a pocket-sized camcorder that will deliver two hours of HD video, 5 megapixel stills, a 2.7-inch LCD and an HDMI output. It comes in violet, pink and green colors. Decisions decisions. I guess I would go with the violet.

iPads finally shipping within 24 hours

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on August 29th, 2010

On Saturday Apple quietly shortened the shipping times for new iPads on the Apple Store to 24 hours. Every model now ships within a day after it was ordered. It’s not clear if Apple retail stock has caught up, but other international stores also show the reduced lead time.

This is the first time in the five months of iPad availability that Apple can expect to keep up with demand and supports the idea that Apple has had to step up production to guarantee a healthy supply. Apple reportedly sub-contracted Samsung to help make the 9.7-inch multi-touch displays after LG Display’s factories weren’t enough.

Amazon is keeping it’s word about the graphite Kindle DX shipping today. The first shipping notices are now going out. You should have it very soon.

New iPad pre-orders will not ship until April 12

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on March 28th, 2010

The date for iPad pre-orders has been shifted back to April 12th, according to Apple’s website. People who have pre-ordered before today can still expect to get their iPads on April 3rd, so no worries there.

But those pre-ordering today & after should not expect the pre-orders to arrive before April 12th. The change suggests that Apple has completely sold out of the original online amount of WiFi iPads. 3G iPad models still have a shipping date of “late April.”

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on November 11th, 2009

Project Natal shipping in November 2010: 14 Games, under $80?Looks like someone from a respected UK gaming publisher may have outed some Project Natal launch plans early, which come from closed-door Microsoft meetings in the UK . The information says that Microsoft will be manufacturing 5 million Natals for a worldwide launch in November 2010. Some are standalone, some in 360 bundles.

Natal will apparently cost anywhere from $50-$80 with 14 games included. The price is certainly in the ballpark and doesn’t surprise us. But it’s all just rumor and speculation until Microsoft says it officially.

According to Nokia’s official blog the device will hit “Europe, the Middle-East, Russia and North America” shortly. It won’t be compatible with the new 3G SIM cards from 3 in the UK, Ireland, Sweden, Denmark and Austria until a software update later this year.
