iPhone 3G 3 Chipset 720p Recording, Real-time Video Conferencing Capable?

iPhone 3G 3 Chipset 720p Recording, Real-time Video Conferencing Capable?

Engadget reports -- based on the tear-downs we've seen -- that the iPhone 3G S' ARM Cortex A8 processor is capable of a wee bit more than Apple has thus far enabled.

Currently running at 600MHz, it actually supports a top clock speed of 833MHz and here are the kickers: 720p video recording and real-time video conferencing.

We'll likely not see the clock speed ramped up for power-saving reasons, nor the video conferencing due to the lack of front-facing camera. But the 720p video recording?

Apple, flip the switch!

TiPb Video: iPhone 3G S vs. iPhone 3G App Launch Battle Royal!

TiPb Video: iPhone 3G S vs. iPhone 3G App Launch Battle Royal!

http://www.th Two iPhones, 6 apps. We know the iPhone 3G S is supposed to be "on average" 2x faster than the iPhone 3G, but stats are stats and what we're interested in is real-world usage. A few seconds here, a dozen or more there, and all of a sudden they add up to minutes.

In this video we launch apps on each iPhone 3.0 device at the same time, but imagine if every time the iPhone 3G S finished first, we immediately launched the next app. We wouldn't make you sit through that much iPhone 3G lag, but that makes the point.

AT&T Still Not Activating All iPhone 3G S -- Apple Giving $30 Apologies?

AT&T Still Not Activating All iPhone 3G S -- Apple Giving $30 Apologies?

A couple of our readers have written in over the weekend concerned that they still can't activate their iPhone 3G S on AT&T's network. Greg let us know that he was originally assured his Apple Store-purchased iPhone 3G S would be activated within 48 hrs (?!) but now it looks like that's been pushed back another 48 hrs -- or 4 days total.

He forwarded us an email he claims to have received from Apple offering a $30 iTunes credit by way of apology.

Isolated incident or is anyone else experiencing the same problem?

Full text after the break!

Dev-Team - redsn0w Forecast for iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G Jailbreak in June

NOTE: iPhone 3G S need not apply!

While I don't have anywhere near the midichlorians Jeremy has for all things Jailbreak, I can tell when the infamous iPhone Dev-Team has their game on:

redsn0w is an easy to use, multi-platform, multi-device jailbreaking and unlocking (iPhone 2G only) tool for the iPhone 2G (original iPhone), the iPhone 3G (but not the 3GS) and also the iPod touch (first and second generation). Currently it is available for Windows and Mac OS X (there are some issues using redsn0w with OS X PPC, please use an Intel Mac until we have this problem resolved).

TiPb Video: iPhone 3G S Multilingual Voice Control Challenge

TiPb Video: iPhone 3G S Multilingual Voice Control Challenge

Throwing any last remnants of fragile self-consciousness to the four winds, I break out my subpar French and very rusty Italian and Mandarin Chinese (Aiya!) and see if, even under the onslaught of terrible accents, Apple's new iPhone 3G S Voice Control can still do as it's told.

iPhone 3G S (Finally!) Supports Full Apple Headset Remote Features

iPhone 3G S (Finally!) Supports Full Apple Headset Remote Features

iPhone 3G S comes with typical shiny white Apple headset buds, but for the first time these earbuds sport the new "remote", which includes volume controls and more.

Apple previously introduced iin-ear headsets with remote and mic for the second generation iPod touch (and aluminum MacBooks) in September 2008, but clearly labeled them as not-compatible with the iPhone 2G or iPhone 3G because the "remote" part was useless.

What a different a generation makes.

UPDATED: Wall Street Journal - Steve Jobs had Liver Transplant, Returning to Apple Soon

UPDATED: Wall Street Journal - Steve Jobs had Liver Transplant, Returning to Apple Soon

UPDATE: Daring Fireball takes apart the Wall Street Journal story about Steve Jobs recovering from a liver transplant, his time table on returning to Apple, and what -- if any -- changes we may see in his role there. Gruber sifts the sources and rank the theories. If this interests you, check it out.

ORIGINAL: We're really not sure how, or even if and when, to cover Steve Jobs anymore. We'd just rather report he's back at work, personally carving the 4th gen iPhone out of adamantium, and not telling Kevin Rose anything about Video iChat.

Pinger fulfills the longstanding demand for SMS-style alerts with iPhone 3.0-style support for Push Notifications in the aptly named Textfree 3.0 ($5.99 - iTunes link).

What does that buy you? One year of free text messages for the iPhone (and iPod touch!). With support for every U.S. mobile carrier, including AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, T-Mobile, Alltel, and others, if the idea of paying Big Telco big money for incredibly small amounts of text doesn't appeal to you, check out Textfree 3.0 and let us know what you think!
