We know it exists. Now, the question is when can we get one and for how much? We are, of course, talking about the RIM BlackBerry Bold, which has drawn many an admirer before and after its official debut earlier this week. RIM and AT&T have already confirmed that the Bold will be released later this summer, but InfoSync reportedly has information with more specifics about date and price as well as details about availability for other carriers. According to the Web site, the BlackBerry Bold will show up in AT&T stores about July, while Sprint, … Read more
Just one day after instituting a policy of one iPhone sale per customer, AT&T said Thursday that it has ended the policy both on its Web site and in its retail stores. Customers will now be able to buy three iPhones per person, a limit that the carrier enacted when the device first went on sale almost a year ago.
The nation's largest carrier and exclusive provider of the iPhone imposed the new policy only Wednesday, limiting iPhones to not only one per customer, but also one per household. At the time, AT&T gave no … Read more
Orange, France Telecom's mobile provider, will whisk the iPhone into at least 10 more European, Middle Eastern, and African countries.
The deal with Apple, announced Friday, will bring the popular device later this year into Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Portugal, Egypt, and Jordan, as well as into unspecified countries in Africa and--back on the home side of the Atlantic--the Dominican Republic.
Until recently the iPhone has been available in just a handful of countries outside the U.S., including the U.K., France, Germany, and Ireland.
If there's one accessory that seems to have reached near-ubiquity in record time, it would be the iPod speaker dock. But most of them have been made for earlier generations of the media player, not the Touch or the iPhone. And even when they are, manufacturers for some reason seem compelled to design them in some odd fashion, whether they resemble Dumbo ears, truncated phone receivers, or a dressing room mirrors.
Every day it seems we get little closer to being fully wired--or unwired, as the case may be--in midair. And we think it's about time.
A day after iPass said it would provide in-flight Wi-Fi roaming, Singapore Airlines announced that it is now offering connectivity for iPods and iPhones on its "KrisWorld" in-flight entertainment system on its Airbus A340-500 planes, according to iLounge. That means you can plug the devices into the system with a standard 30-pin connector and then watch your own video on a personal 15.4-inch widescreen LCD (there's one at each seat … Read more
Research in Motion has a touch-screen BlackBerry in the works that should be out in the third quarter, according to a report Thursday.
The Wall Street Journal has echoed a previous report from The Boy Genius Report that RIM's BlackBerry Thunder will arrive later this year exclusively on Vodafone and Verizon's networks. The device is seen as an answer to Apple's iPhone, which will likely be running on AT&T's 3G network by the time the Thunder arrives.
Intel has emphatically denied a report that Apple is planning to use its Atom processor in a future version of the iPhone.
On Wednesday, our sister site ZDNet.de reported that the head of Intel's German operations told reporters that Apple was planning to use the Atom chip in a larger version of the iPhone, due out at some future date. ZDNet.de has since amended its article to say that Hannes Schwaderer was only referring to the possibility that Apple might use Atom in a future Mobile Internet Device, not the iPhone.
An Intel representative in the U.… Read more
Kwiry, the memory-saving tool I wrote about back in December, has just put out a useful update for people who don't like to type. Users can now send photos to their Kwiry stream in hopes of digging up a search for it later. The company is hoping people will use this to catalog things they come across in everyday life, and bookmark them for later like people do with links on services like Delicious and Magnolia.
Kwiry's creators insist this isn't a photo-hosting service--just a tool to help people dig up more information about something they've … Read more
In the interest of brevity, here's today's roundup of iPhone news and rumors.
Telefonica CEO Matthew Kay told reporters in the U.K. that Apple and the telecom company would be making a joint announcement in "the coming weeks," reviving the never-quite-dead speculation that Apple is about to release a new version of the iPhone.
Along those same lines, AT&T associates have supposedly been told to impose purchase limits on regular iPhones as supply dwindles. AT&T customers are now being limited to just one iPhone purchase per person, and must pay with … Read more
In what might be a high-profile case of career suicide, an Intel Germany executive has reportedly confirmed that Apple plans to use Intel's Atom processor in a future iPhone.
The report, from our sister site ZDNet.de, is in German. I don't speak German. Google's translation service says "As part of an Intel-Events for the 40th Birthday semiconductor company BMW in Munich, Germany-World's managing director Hannes Schwaderer today confirms what has long been a rumor on the Internet kursierte: namely, that there is an iPhone with Intel's new nuclear-chip type." Atom, in the … Read more
