And we’re off: the first photos of a “cheap” iPhone – not specifically of the iPhone 5 but of a light version of the iPhone 4 – are beginning to appear, the latest leak coming from a Vietnamese forum, Tinhte.
Earlier today, TUAW noted that according to Flickr’s stats, the iPhone 4 is now the most popular camera across the site. Yes, it has overtaken all those professional cameras, all the point-and-shoots, etc. That’s huge.
But the news came with a caveat. And it’s actually a big one.
As TUAW notes at the bottom of their post, the caveat is Flickr admitting that they’re only able to detect the camera… → Read More
Let’s play a game! Look at the image above and pick the real iPhone 4 from the clone. Right or left? Need more help? Click through for a couple more images. → Read More
There it was. Like the White Tower of Ecthelion, glimmering like a spike of pearl and silver. It was 15 feet away from me. The white iPhone.
Tonight I was at dinner with a couple of friends when something caught my eye. I cut into our conversation. “Look at the table next to ours. Is that the white iPhone?” Both of my friends, geeks like me, got excited. Yep. → Read More
When it comes to iPhone cases with special tricks up their sleeves (that is, the ones that do more than just protect your handset from the wilds), you usually get one or the other: an external battery, or some sort of clever kickstand system built to prop the iPhone up for movie watchin’.
With the just announced switchBACK Surge G4 case, Scosche is lookin’ to cover both bases at once. → Read More
What’s the most popular camera used in terms of pictures taken that are uploaded to Flickr? Right now, it’s the Nikon D90. But in about a month or so, it will be Apple’s iPhone 4. What’s amazing is that D90 is nearly three years old. The iPhone 4 is not even a year old. Just look at a the chart above. The rise has been spectacular.
But it’s hardly the first time an iPhone has risen this quickly. → Read More
There are quite a few panoramic apps for the iPhone but they all require a steady hand, lots of patience and, most important, you can only take still photos. The GoPano aims to solve that by adding a panoramic mirror to the iPhone’s video camera, thereby allowing you to take panoramic video in real time.
The GoPano simply snaps onto your iPhone and the included app does the rest. As you record… → Read More
We have to level with you. The iPad 2 has some flaws. One would only expect that the iPad 2, a device many many months ahead of the iPhone 4, would have an equal or better quality camera. Sadly, it doesn’t. So to see just where the iPad 2 camera ranks with the rest of the meaningful tablets, Macworld thoroughly tests them. → Read More
The backstory isn’t exactly detailed, but somehow M.I.C. Gadget got their hands on what seems to be an unreleased 64GB iPhone. All they’re stating is that the phone is not for sale and it was “definitely leaked from Foxconn’s factory in Shenzhen.” True? We don’t know, but it at least seems like the real deal. The backside shows a model number of XXXXX and an FCC ID of BCG-AXXXXX — just like… → Read More
We’ve been seeing clones of the iPhone 4 for a while now. But this one, this one looks legit. The software is surely garbage, but, you have to admit they’re getting pretty good at copying. The GT5, not named after Grand Turismo 5, is one of many Chinese copycats that no one in the US would ever buy. But hey, it looks good. → Read More
Happy Thursday! CafePress, makers of customized T-shirts and books and mugs and stuff, wants to give you, the fine people of CG, 100 CrunchGear iPhone 4 cases. Why? Because you guys are b to the a to the d to the a to the double snakes, that’s why.
This is a random for one of 100 CrunchGear iPhone cases and entering is pretty darn simple. → Read More
Remember “Antennagate“? Oh wait, you don’t? Well let me remind you: it was pretty much the biggest deal ever… for a whole two weeks. Actually, let me rephrase that: it was pretty much the biggest deal ever for some of us in the tech media who were able to write dozens upon dozens of stories about an issue that absolutely no regular person was likely to care about.
Don’t believe me? Maybe you’ll… → Read More
