More MobileMe going free rumors

With the WWDC 2010 keynote mere days away, more rumors continue that Apple's push and sync solution, MobileMe, might just be going free. They're thin, admittedly, but BGR points us to a change in how account type is shown -- now "full member" is highlighted.

As opposed to free member?

We might just find out Monday, including what the differences are between "free" and "full" (or no change at all). We know you want it -- because we want it too - so go head, conjecture in the comments!

TiPb at WWDC 2010

I'm going to be at WWDC 2010 from Monday to Wednesday, checking out what I hope will be all shades of 4th gen iPhone and iPhone OS 4 awesome, and meeting with developers to see what fiendishly clever plans they have for using that new tech to make even more wondrous apps.

Keep your browsers locked here for all our coverage, and feel free to follow us on twitter @TiPb for just the highlight (or @reneritchie for the not-fit-for-print backstage hijinks).

Email Apple CEO, get response from Jobs. Email AT&T CEO, get legal threat

From the surprisingly poplar PR manual in how not to win customers and engender goodwill, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson's email address doesn't seem anywhere near as likely to receive a Steve Jobs-style terse if direct response. Indeed:

Giorgio Galante found out today, sending AT&T's CEO two emails in two weeks results in a phone call from AT&T's Executive Response Team and a warning that further emails will result in a cease and desist letter.

Sprint HTC Evo 4G -- here comes the iPhone HD/iPhone 4G competition

Phil Nickinson over at Android Central has just posted a full review of the Sprint HTC Evo 4G, which he's billing as the baddest Android on the planet. Big screen, front facing video call camera, brand new OS in the pipeline, it's not hard to see that this will be Sprint's answer to the iPhone HD/iPhone 4G (unless and until they're able to offer the iPhone HD/iPhone 4G on Sprint -- just sayin').

More white iPhone HD/iPhone 4G casing images leak out

Yes we have more white next-generation iPhone casing images that have leaked out and this time they come to us from Powerbook Medic. The site claims they received the casing from one of their parts suppliers.

We first saw evidence of a all white iPhone when images of the faceplate surfaced and then shortly there after the those were followed up by images of what appeared to be a fully assembled all-white iPhone. While a video of a all white iPhone in action would be nice, we suppose we can exercise some patience and wait until June 7th when Steve shows us both - black and white devices...

The source link below seems to be down as of this writing but we have one more image after the break!

Verizon rumored to be testing CDMA iPad

According to one of BRG's "highly placed" sources, Verizon Wireless is currently testing CDMA-compatible iPads. Their source even went one step further and mentioned LTE with another possible iPad model though that could not be confirmed.

So with all of the Verizon rumors flying around as of late it looks as if we will see both the iPad and iPhone in the hands of Big Red faithful sooner or later.

Is anyone out there regretting picking up a AT&T compatible iPad right about now?

AT&T users can keep unlimited data plans even when upgrading to iPhone HD/iPhone 4G... unless they want tethering. (And how to check your data usage)

The good news is, existing iPhone users with the $30 unlimited data plan can keep that plan even if upgrading to the next generation iPhone HD/iPhone 4G this summer -- unless you want to tether, at which point you'll need to switch to one of the new AT&T tiered pricing data plans for smartphones.

If you're trying to decide whether or not you should make the switch, the first question that comes to mind is "how much data am I using now?" You can find out very easily from AT&T's website and TiPb is here to show you how.

iPhone keeps new users happy, a continued threat to rest of smartphone industry - ChangeWave

iPhone continues to have huge customer satisfaction and low return numbers, poses threat to competitors if it moves beyond AT&T's network to Verizon and others

ChangeWave has released their latest survey results, this time asking 1,009 new smartphone buyers (including iPhone buyers) why they chose the phone they did, how satisfied they were with their new phone, and some general opinions positive and negative about their new phone.

The results in a sentence:

The results show the continuing threat the iPhone poses to the rest of the industry.

The results in a lot of stats:

iPhone had the highest satisfaction of any smartphone at 77%, with Motorola second at 64% and HTC 3rd at 51%. Samsung was last at 35%.

iPhone also had the lowest likelihood of return, with only 7%. Motorola was next with 12%, then HTC with 15%, and Palm was last with 36%.

When asked if non-AT&T users would still have bought their current (Verizon/Sprint/T-Mobile) smartphone if the iPhone were on their carrier, 39% said they would, 32% said they would have gone with an iPhone instead, and 29% weren't sure.

More graphs after the break!
