iPhone 3G in the UK: Vodafone Getting in on the Action?

A couple days ago we mentioned that Orange UK might be in the running to become the second (after O2) carrier to get the iPhone in the United Kingdom. Today comes word that Vodafone (think of it as Verizon with a fancy accent and GSM goodness) may also be splitting the Isles wide open. According to Mobile Tech Addicts:

Now we have discovered a Vodafone portal designed for the iPhone. It is basically a portal that gives you access to news but the question is why would Vodafone go to these lengths if they weren’t about to get the iPhone.

Reminder: How To Create a US iTunes App Store Account Without a Credit Card (but with Promo Codes!)

For NO PARTICULAR REASON, we just wanted to remind everyone that even if you don't have a US credit card, Apple has helpfully provided a knowledge base article on how to create and use US App Store accounts. With these accounts, you can still download and use apps (and redeem promo codes).

The process involves making sure you're not already logged in with another account, then choosing App Store from the menu, downloading a free app, choosing "none" for the payment type, and responding to the confirmation menu.

TiPb Birthday Bash: G-Map East & West Great American Give Away!

Entering this contest counts as an entry in TiPb's Birthday Bash grand-prize draw for an Unlocked ColorWare iPhone 3G!

G-Map for iPhone, in both US East and West flavors ($24.99 each - iTunes link), is the current king of the iPhone roads. Chad's already gone on record with his love for this app:

I have been using G-Map US East for the iPhone now for a couple of months. Why wait for FULL GPS Navigation with Turn-by-Turn with Software 3.0 when you can have it now. All that is lacking is the audible cue to turn, but it has excellent visual cues. Easy to use and fast calculations make this one a winner! The developer says they will add Audible Turn-by-Turn with Software 3.0. Did I mention that Internet access is not required? That’s right, all of the maps are on your hard drive with no subscription!

With slick features like real 3D junction view, there's nothing else like it for short hauls or cross-country road trips alike. Which brings us neatly to our first, and maybe one of our most challenging TiPb Birthday Bash contests!

Inspired by babydol's idea, head on over to the TiPb Birthday Bash: G-Map East & West Great American Give Away! thread in the forums and post a photo of your iPhone that best shows where it's been, where you want it go, or just how you feel about traveling the United States. Be majestic, be funny, be creative. (And yes, Photoshop is fine too.)

Give us that EPIC moment of iPhone Americana, and we'll pick five (5) of you to give promo codes for BOTH G-Map East & West (that's $50 worth of apps!), courtesy of XROAD.

Contest details after the break!

iPhone 3.0 Beta 5 Now Available to Develpers

Apple has just released iPhone 3.0 Beta 5 to developers, a scant week-and-a-day after Beta 4. Previously Beta 2 and Beta 3 had been arriving every second Tuesday like clockwork, so was is this a sign of acceleration pre-WWDC, important fixes that needed pushing out faster, or just an early surprise for developers anxious to keep up to date?
