iPhone 3.0 User Interface Details

Sebastiaan de With -- aside from gritting his teeth and almost blinding himself in one eye while reproducing the incomprehensibly pin-striped logo above -- has bent his design-focus and Cocoia blog towards an analysis of Apple's new iPhone 3.0 user interface:

Sometimes, I’m considering if other companies in the cellphone / personal media player market have caught up to Apple’s care to details and design sensibilities, but then things like these make the reality very obvious to me:

Apple’s still the leader of the pack by several tail lengths.

iPhone 3GS Suffering Heat Discoloration?

We haven't seen or heard about this at TiPb, though it did happen once upon a time with Apple's white MacBooks -- heat related discoloration. We hope and imagine Apple learned from this, but have any of you experienced your white iPhone 3GS suddenly getting a tan? If so, let us know in the comments and more importantly, make an appointment at the Apple Store to get it swapped out ASAP!

1 Million Reasons why Palm Pre Shot at iPhone Misses

Sprint and the Palm Pre just decided to bring it to Apple's iPhone via a perfectly nifty, if factually inaccurate(1), little ad-esque banner posted on Facebook. PreCentral.net already pipped us to the relevant quote post, citing McNamee's infamous CEOh-snap moment from the past:

Dev-Team - iPhone 3GS Jailbreak Possible via 24Kpwn, Unlock via ultrasn0w?

The illustrious iPhone Dev-Team says that the 24Kpwn techniques, originally developers as part of the iPod touch 2G jailbreak efforts, look like they just might work on the iPhone 3GS as well!

This is great news, but how did it happen? Why didn’t Apple fix this in their normal cat&mouse fashion? Well it seems this bootrom was cut in about the August 2008 timeframe, so the unintended early reveal of 24Kpwn earlier this year didn’t affect the iPhone 3GS

They're also confident that the recently released ultrasn0w unlock will work on the iPhone 3GS once they get the jailbreak up and running.

Still Have AT&T Reception Problems at Home? Femtocell Still Coming Eventually...

We mentioned AT&T's femtocell way back in February, but we don't blame you if it doesn't ring a bell. In a nutshell, femtocell is a box you add to your internet setup at home that lets your route the AT&T service you're paying for through the broadband connection you're paying for -- and you'll get to pay for the privilege as well.

How Fast is Your iPhone 3GS Data Connection?

Part of the "S stands for Speed" boost in the iPhone 3GS' bullet points is support for faster HSPA 7.2Mbps data transfer. The giant honking asterisk at the end of that sentence, however, is usually "where supported by carriers, real-world speed will be epically slower".

So, real world TiPb community, just how fast is your new iPhone 3GS? I posted a few results above for what I'm getting on Rogers in and outside Montreal. Let us know what carrier you're on, and what speeds you're averaging?

Telus and Bell Going HSPA, Hungry for iPhone 3GS in Canada?

BGR served up a rumor that Telus in Canada was getting the iPhone 3GS in October. How will a CDMA carrier get the GSM iPhone? Simple, as mentioned last year, Telus has partnered with Bell to expand their CDMA network by adding in HSPA. That means Bell Mobility could support the iPhone 3GS as well, and the rumor's TiPb's hearing is they just might (though exact timing will of course depend on how fast they get HSPA up and running).
