What will ye have? An iPhone 4, HTC EVO, or the next Google Phone?

iPhone 4, Google's next-phone, HTC EVO

With all the iPhone 4 glitz and glamour out there, some other options may get left behind. The HTC Droid Incredible which we looked at just a few weeks back is quite the challenger, but the EVO seems to be a more advanced offering from HTC. There’s also the possibility of a new Google phone, perhaps a Nexus 2, coming to combat the iPhone 4. So what gives you that charged and static feeling?

iPhone 4 display smashed, but was it the real deal?

bumper-hero-20100607

When Apple announced the iPhone 4 and all the miraculous new technology it had to offer, our jaws dropped to the floor thinking this would indeed be another revolution. However blinded by marketing fluff, fancy names like high-tech aluminosilicate glass, and unthinkable correlations between “windshields of military helicopters and high speed trains” we figured this thing was a tank and a real game changer.

AT&T to lose iPhone 4 exclusivity in 6 months?

att-iphone4-chart

I’m just as tired as you are about hearing that Verizon or Sprint is going to get the iPhone 4. The rumor has been going on for quite some time. Even with the Wall Street Journal reporting on it, there hasn’t been a whole lot to back that up, until now. What AT&T is calling “another very exciting day for customers,” could be a ploy to lock you in to another contract. With the iPhone 4 release, new plans from the exclusive carrier were announced offering current iPhone owners the option to upgrade early; the clincher, you are with them for another 2 years.

Apple iPhone 4 official, has HD but no 4G

iphone-4

With leaks coming from California bars to Taiwanese manufacturing plants, the newest iPhone 4 release by Apple will definitely go down in history as one of the worst kept secrets the company has ever had. Was it all marketing, or just carelessness? No one will ever know, but legal actions against Gizmodo for revealing the device ahead of schedule can only lead us to believe it wasn’t intended. At the WWDC today Steve Jobs unveiled the iPhone 4 and it appears to be just as we thought it would. A front facing camera allows you two-way video communication over VoIP with other iPhone 4 users, this is done through a new app called FaceTime (see video below). HD video (720p / 30fps) can be recorded on the back side camera with the new iMovie app that will cost an extra $5. Still shots have been upgraded with a 5 megapixel sensor and 5x digital zoom from the rear which is accompanied by an LED flash.

Micro SIM card adapter lets you share iPhone data plan to iPads

micro-sim-adapter-200

You know how the Apple iPad 3G doesn’t make use of a regular SIM card for its cellular identification? You know how it uses a micro SIM card instead? What if you wanted to use a micro SIM in a place that normally takes a regular SIM?

Many enthusiasts out there have already taken their scissors to regular-sized SIM cards, trimming them down to micro SIM proportions for use with the iPad. The question is, how do you add that material back?

Electronics manufacturing’s encroaching dark side casts shadow on iPhone splendor

Shenzen plant workers manufacturing electronics devices

Another Foxconn employee at the Shenzhen plant is dead after falling off a building this Tuesday morning.

With a total workforce in China numbering 800,000, Foxconn is the world’s largest contract electronics manufacturer; making devices for leading global electronics brands like Apple and the iPhone. Shenzhen police confirmed the death, and it’s still under investigation as a possible suicide. Nine people have died this year in a series of “incidents” among workers, with two failed suicide attempts.

Sprint rumored to get iPhone HD in a matter of weeks

Sprint rumored to get next-generation iPhone

Over the last year or so rumors have been running rampant over the release of a Verizon iPhone. AT&T’s exclusivity contract with Apple is ending, several carriers are looking to get the world’s most popular smartphone in their stores and on their network. While Verizon is still most likely to get the iPhone 4G (4th generation), another popular carrier also looks promising; Sprint. This comes from a series of emails between a Best Buy Employee and The Tech Update. The email states that Best Buy will be carrying a Sprint iPhone beginning in June. The source or store that the employee works at will obviously not reveal themselves, as they probably don’t want to end up losing their job and getting their house raided by big bro..er Apple.

New photos of White iPhone 4G surface

White-4G-iPhone

In a follow up to the previous leak of the white iPhone 4G, new photos have surfaced showing more detail and features of the white model.

The new photo, compliments of Apple.pro (site currently down), has both the white and black iPhone 4G prototypes side by side. The LCD and interface are similar to the infamous Gizmodo leak iPhone. Seeing this version makes me think it will be released simultaneously with the black one. Apple could open the color palate similar to iPods, but that’s highly unlikely. Expect the Apple iPhone 4th generation/HD to be released in June of 2011.

Visa iPhone case to change how we pay

Visa Pay Photo: Tech Crunch http://www.mobilecrunch.com/2010/05/17/visa-officially-announces-their-case-that-turns-your-iphone-into-a-credit-card-and-weve-got-pics/

The history of our monetary system is a long and exciting tale; barter turning to the use of gold in some places, wampum (shell beads) in others. Sixty years ago the first credit card, Diners Club, came into existence. Today almost all North Americans are packing plastic, if not credit then certainly debit. Within the past fifteen years we’ve seen the rise of e-commerce with companies like PayPal, creating economies within economies. So what’s next on our path of monetary madness? Well if you’ve recently been to Japan, or are dating a Japanese lady (recommended) you probably already know the answer: wireless payment via your cell phones.
