iPod nano 6 [gallery]

He may be little, but the 2010 iPod nano 6 still looks like iOS and still acts like iOS so I'm going to show him off like he's iOS -- up against the iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4.

I'll be working on the review this weekend, so if you have any questions, leave them in the comments.

Follow along after the break for the gallery!

AWS 3G iPhone 4 coming to Videotron... and T-Mobile USA?

Videotron launched their mobile unit today and along with Nexus One and BlackBerry Bold 9700 they said Apple would announce an AWS 3G (the higher spectrum 3G used by upstarts Wind, Moblicity, and Videotron in Canada, and T-Mobile in the US) "in the coming months".

My usual thinking is that carriers have little if any forward knowledge of Apple's plans, so take this with a Quebec-sized grain of salt.

If Apple wants to have a truly universal GSM/HSPA 3G phone, however, they'll need to enable or add those AWS frequencies at some point.

Jailbreaker @pod2g as well as other sources are indicating that this "particular" exploit would require Apple to flash to a whole new bootrom in order to fix it.

Google likes Apple's clarified iOS advertising policy

Google Vice President of Product Management, Omar Hamoui, has just posted about the changes made this morning to Apple's iOS developer licensing agreement, specifically the section referring to in-app advertising:

Today, Apple updated their iPhone Developer Program License Agreement. Unlike the previous version, these new terms ensure that Apple’s developers have the choice of a variety of advertising solutions (including Google’s and AdMob’s) to earn money and fund their apps. Apple’s new terms will keep in-app advertising on the iPhone open to many different mobile ad competitors and enable advertising solutions that operate across a wide range of platforms.

Read the whole things for why this is great news for everyone, from consumers to developers to puppy dogs (that's not me being facetious -- it really is).

Apple relaxes cross-compiler restrictions, publishes app review guidelines

Apple announced today that they're revising controversial sections of their developer program license and for the first time publishing their review guidelines:

We are continually trying to make the App Store even better. We have listened to our developers and taken much of their feedback to heart. Based on their input, today we are making some important changes to our iOS Developer Program license in sections 3.3.1, 3.3.2 and 3.3.9 to relax some restrictions we put in place earlier this year.

In particular, we are relaxing all restrictions on the development tools used to create iOS apps, as long as the resulting apps do not download any code. This should give developers the flexibility they want, while preserving the security we need.

iOS 4.1 features: Field test mode

Field test mode, missing from iOS 4.0, makes its triumphant return in iOS 4.1. If you're not familiar with it, field test mode is a diagnostic mode that shows cell reception as actual, meaningful numbers as opposed to nebulous Apple and carrier rendered bars.

To enter field test mode, dial 3001#12345#

To exit field test mode, click the home button

Apple's latest iPad add is... magically musical

Apple's latest iPad ad keeps going with the apps and the verbiage, this time rounding off medical, live, musical, work, play, memories, social, magazines, and historic.

Not magical though, at least not like last time.

Numbers is just one of the apps highlighted. Can you name them all?

Video after the break!

App Store adds Game Center games section

If you're trying to keep track of all the newly updated, Game Center enabled games for iOS 4.1, look no further than the App Store where Apple has gone and created a special page just to list them for your viewing -- and buying -- pleasure.

There's about a dozen and half games now but we're guessing it will fill out quickly now that iOS 4.1 is live.

If you've tried some out, let us know your favorites.
