iPhone 4 price is roughly $180 out of Apple’s pocket

iphone-4-dissected-200

The Apple iPhone 4 price remains quite competitive when considering that it shares several of the same components that its oversized brother, the iPad does. The same A4 processor, possibly clocked down to conserve battery life, a wireless 802.11N antenna, Bluetooth 2.1 module and 16GB/32GB of memory are some of the common similarities the two devices share. Screen size is obviously reduced on the iPhone, Retina Display technology does give it that extra sharpness, but the iPad’s display added roughly $95 to it’s manufacturing component cost; more than double that of the iPhone 4.

Apple sells 600,000 iPhone 4 units on launch day

Apple sold 600,000 iPhone 4 units during a pre-order blitz yesterday

AT&T put the breaks on pre-orders for the Apple iPhone 4 yesterday. Apple managed to sell 600,000 units on launch day demolishing iPhone 3GS pre-orders ten fold. Due to the large number of people rushing the websites, a few things got bogged down and many users couldn’t get their pre-order in. So it’s possible Apple could have broken the 1 million mark if they were able to handle the traffic.

AT&T slams hacker group responsible for “malicious” attack

att-cracked

The group replied last week saying it exposed the security flaw to inform and protect consumers, and refused to make public their discoveries until AT&T repaired the issue. In response to the FBI’s claim that they’ve begun investigating the incident, the hacker organization said simply, “We did not try to hack your iPads, your iPads are safer now because of us”. They also noted that all findings have been destroyed by both the hackers and Gawker Media’s Valleywag website who received the data from them.

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.

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.

When Apple first launched the iPad in the United States, it was relatively unknown how it would perform in the open market. Being the first device of its kind, Apple took a gamble by yet again giving us technology that we didn’t know we needed, until of course we shelled out some coin to get it. The iPad is a rock star, it sold 1 million units in the first month, beating the companies very own iPhone smartphone.

Apple the new alpha dog in tech

In only one month Microsoft lost a $25 billion lead over Apple in market capitalization, dropped behind by $3 billion, gave Apple the alpha dog status of tech, and all the leverage and power that comes with the sought after top spot.

This is not news to consumers who continue to eagerly mob Apple’s hot new iPhone and iPad models; Microsoft’s consumer products business continues to struggle for every breath. Their decline was underlined by the past weeks of market instability, bringing down the former heavyweight champ’s shares 15%, while Apple’s stock is down just over 6%.

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.

Apple back-to-school promo starts early, free iPod touch with Mac

Apple Back to School promo starts early

It may be hard to believe, but Apple has already started its back-to-school marketing campaign; one of the biggest promotions for this campaign is the free iPod touch with the purchase of just about any Mac computer. This is far from a unique promotion, since the Cupertino-based company has been offering the free iPod around the back-to-school time for several years, but this is kind of early, don’t you think? High school students might still be in school and the college kids only got off about a month ago.

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.
