Are these iPhone HD/iPhone 4G video call settings?

Could these be shots of iPhone HD/iPhone 4G iChat video call settings screens taken off field test units? Who knows, they don't look 960x640 to our pixel peepers but with WWDC 2010 and the supposed unveiling only a few weeks away, anything is possible.

So let us know, real, fake, or really fake?

Just like the on-iPad App Store, Apple has begun turning on the on-iPad iBookstore for international iTunes accounts just ahead of the May 28 international iPad launch. Unlike the App Store, however, which includes almost all major titles paid and free, the international iBookstore only seems to include free public domain titles.

iTunes Store Integrates Rotten Tomatoes Ratings

If you're a frequent browser of the iTunes movie section, you may have noticed the addition of a Rotten Tomatoes rating section.  If you're not familiar with Rotten Tomatoes, it's basically a site where users and critics can rate movies as fresh or rotten.  To the left you'll see the classic TomatoMeter rating system while to the right you'll see a few of the most recent ratings for that specific movie.

And if you still want to know more about a movie, clicking the find more option will take you to the Rotten Tomatoes site page for that film.  Fancy! What do you think? Let us know in the comments.

On-device iPad App Store goes international

Overnight Apple began enabling the on-device iPad App Store for international users. That is to say, it no longer spits up the dreaded "the App Store is not supported in your country" error and actually renders the WebKit storefront now. It's still a bit of a work in progress with iPhone apps hard to distinguish from iPad specific ones off the main featured page, but it's a huge step forward.

BeejiveIM now available for iPad

The popular IM client BeejiveIM is now available on iPad. It offers much of the same functionality of it's iPhone cousin, but really takes advantage of the iPad screen real estate. Here are the key features that BeejiveIM boasts to bring:

  • Reliable and efficient networking: be connected 24/7, and it's gentle on your battery
  • Be connected even after you close the application. Get notified instantly when you get a new message with push notifications
  • Works with multiple IM networks, multiple accounts per network: AIM/iChat, MSN, Yahoo, GoogleTalk, Facebook IM, ICQ, Jabber, and MySpace IM
  • Send and receive files, including pictures and voice notes. View and forward received documents.
  • Desktop-like instant messaging with all of your IM buddies from a single intuitive user interface.

I have spent a little time with BeejiveIM for iPad and I find the experience to be wonderful. The UI is strait forward and the app is very stable. Notifications come in quickly as well. I dare say that BeejiveIM offers the best IM experience currently available on the iPad.

If you pick this one up, let us know what you think!

[$5.99 - iTunes link]

iPhone OS 4 beta 4 reveals future iPod and iPad camera flash

It was only a matter of time that developers searched through the latest iPhone OS 4 beta to find secret goodies and this time we see that the next generations of the iPod and iPad both may receive a LED camera flash (which we guess also presupposes they're receive cameras, right?). The code is as follows:

FLASH_DISABLED_iPad = "The iPad needs to cool down before you can use the flash.";

FLASH_DISABLED_iPod = "The iPod needs to cool down before you can use the flash.";
