  • Unlocked iPhones popular on the other side of the pond

    Euro Telecom Orange is saying that 6,000 of the 30,000 iPhones they sold during the opening five days were bought unlocked. Apparently, people are more than willing to spend the extra 250 euros to skip the hassle of a locked carrier (phones with contracts went for 499 euros, unlocked 750 euros). Hopefully a two-tiered launch will become the standard over here in the states, where we had little… Read More

  • Download files in Mobile Safari

    A new “plug-in” from hachu lets you download files straight to your unlocked iPhone. This lets you download zip and tar files as well as save MP3 files to the internal memory. So what does that get you? Not much, but thanks to Erica Sadun, you can now use the SendFile application to send files from the Downloads folder in your iPhone, creating a fairly cool little way to download… Read More

  • Google for the iFones now available

    Surf on over to Google, iFones fans, and feast your eyes on the new mobile version of Google. You’ve got Google Reader, Gmail, your Calendar, and even Docs all nicely arrayed in Joe Hewitt’s (TC thinks) iPhone sexiness. It’s good to own the best phone on the market today, isn’t it? via TC Read More

  • Google Pre-Launches New iPhone Interface

    We heard a rumor that Google was going to launch a new interface for users accessing the site via an iPhone in the next few days. But an anonymous tip let us know it actually launched without any warning or announcement this evening. If you visit Google.com from an iPhone, you now get a menu of services to choose from – home (search box), Gmail, Calendar, Reader and More (docs, sms… Read More

  • iPhone browser count rockets past WinMo

    I guess people can’t be having that hard of a time inputting web addresses on that fiddly keyboard, because the total people browsing with an iPhone has passed up the years-old WinMo for an impressive 0.09 percent of the browser market. Just below the iPhone, Windows CE accounts for 0.06 percent, and just above it is Windows ME, amazingly enough, with 0.43 percent. This could change… Read More

  • iPhone Delivers: Bigger Browsing Share Than Windows Mobile

    When Steve Jobs first announced the iPhone, he promised that it would revolutionize the mobile browsing experience. Roughly 1.4 million sales later it barely registers than more than a blip on global mobile phone sales charts, but its users a making their mark. According to figures from Net Applications, the iPhone now holds a 0.09% browser market share; a small figure perhaps but remarkable… Read More

  • AdMob + iPhone + LandRover = Good Results

    A iPhone focused LandRover campaign powered by San Mateo based mobile advertising startup AdMob has seen some interesting results (video demo above). AdAge has some details on the campaign here, but I obtained some raw figures from AdMob. Of those users who clicked on the Land Rover advertisement, 23% responded to at least one call-to-action on the landing page. 88% of those users watched… Read More

  • CG Holiday 2007 Recommendation: V-MODA VIBE DUO iPhone Headset

    If you gots the iFone and you don’t likes the white earbudses, get you some V-MODA DUO’s. These in-ear earbuds are amazing: they fit the iPhone perfectly, they have a usable click button for pausing music and picking-up calls, and they look much cooler than the standard Apple buds. $89.99 online.

  • Mophie juice pack extends the life of your iFones, yay


    A case actually worth buying. Too bad it’s for the iPhone. I like what Mophie has done with the juice pack iPhone battery extender. It’s very similar to the BlackBerry holsters, but do the RIM holsters bolster the ability to add eight hours of talk time, six hours of Internet use, 24 hours of audio and seven hours of video? Nope. The juice pack does all that and you can check on… Read More

  • IPSF unlocked iFones now works with 1.1.2, here's how

    Let’s say you have an iFones that was unlocked with iPhoneSimFree. And let’s say you tried jailbreaking when 1.1.2 came out, but you failed miserably. Well, now you can get that sucka working. Courtesy of Jesus over at the Giz. Read More

  • Stylus for iPhone/iPod touch costs $25, defeats purpose

    When Steve Jobs first introduced the iPhone, he made his feelings about stylus use pretty clear by saying something to the effect of "Who wants a stylus? Yuck. We’ll use the best pointing device in the world, our fingers." I share an equal disdain for the stylus and I find that even my fat fingers work well enough on my iPod touch. Some people don’t, though. If… Read More

  • Some guy says Apple will launch ultra-portable then makes stuff up about about Android


    Artist’s rendering I love financial analysts. They get “super-secret” news from “super-secret” sources — mostly the same sources we all have — and tell people to buy or sell stocks based on the same hunches we all have. The hunch du jour on Wall Street is that Apple’s stock will go up after the launch of an ultra-portable laptop at MacWorld… Read More

  • AT&T yanks $28 iPhone data-only plan for the deaf

    AT&T has reportedly pulled a $27.99-per-month data-only iPhone plan that had previously been offered to the hard of hearing and deaf. I remember seeing a lady with a Sidekick WAY back when they first came out and when I excitedly stopped her to high-five about being Sidekick owners, she replied that she used one because she works with the deaf. The iPhone would tend to be a similarly… Read More

  • Carphone Warehouse not practicing truthiness?

    The BBC visited five UK-based Carphone Warehouse stores to see if rumors were true concerning customers being told that if they didn’t buy insurance on their iPhone and they happened to lose it somewhere, it would cost them at least £630 and a whole new contract to replace it. While it’s true that they’d have to buy a new phone, the 18-month contract would not start over. Read More

  • AT&T's CEO confirms 3G iFones


    Randall Stephenson, AT&T’s CEO, confirmed yesterday that the 3G iFones will be coming next year, but a specific time line was not revealed. The battery life of 3G handsets today sucks, to say the least, and Apple is aware of this and it’s in their best interest to work those kinds of kinks out before putting a 3G version on the market. I wouldn’t expect this till late… Read More

  • Orange announces iFones pricing

    The day of reckoning is upon us. Well, not us, but for the Frenchies it is. Orange has loosed pricing for the iFones that launches tomorrow or is it today? Thursday. With one of four plans offered ranging from 49 euros to 119 euros, Orange customers can purchase the iFones for 399 euros. If you snub any of the offered plans then you’ll have to pay 549 euros and without any… Read More

  • Unlocked iFones from Orange cheaper than T-mo

    I’m sorry but an unlocked iPhone is not worth $1,500, which is what T-mo in Germany is selling the precious for. It’d be a lot cheaper to have someone visiting the US pick one up or just find someone on Craigslist to do it for you. But that’s not always the case and luckily for you, Europeans, Orange will be doling out unlocked iFones for less than 999 euros, but more than… Read More

  • Breaking: Some third party vendors already have iPhone, iPod Touch SDKs!?

    Hot on the proverbial heels of the news that Apple will use digital signatures to ensure quality and security in the forthcoming iPhone and iPod Touch SDKs, we get word that Apple is leaking pre-release versions of the SDK to certain third party vendors far in advance of the official launch. Electronista gets credit for the scoop, though there’s no word on which companies this might be. Read More

  • iPhone and iPod Touch's developers to verify identities with digital signatures

    We know that in the near future, we’ll have real, authentic, genuine third-party app support for iPhone and the iPod Touch. There’s no secret that I’m a fan of the hardware that Apple has developed, and I’m looking forward to the opening of the systems. And it’s looking like Apple will use an ID scheme to keep track of who’s writing what, to ensure quality… Read More
