Interview with iPhone Designer Jonathan Ive

Apple's reclusive Vice President of Design recently spoke with the Independant's Claire Beale on the nature of design, winning an unprecedented six (6!) Black Pencil awards, and what drives Apple's success:

This Week in Smartphone Schadenfreude, May 24th Edition

iControlpad for iPhone Gives You Real Buttons

Trying to break records on your iPhone? Can't manage to do it with the touchscreen? Well jailbreak nation, it looks like there is a solution---iControlpad!

Though the image above is just a prototype, it takes obvious visual cues from the PSP, just take a look at the button layout and form factor.  Supposedly, it works via serial port and is currently supported by GBA, PSX (ZodTTD developed) emulators. They are planning on releasing the source code and SDK soon so hopefully more developers can jump on board.

AT&T CFO Speaks! 2.5M Subscribers - No 3G Pricing (Yet!)

AT&T CFO Speaks! 2.5M Subscribers - No 3G Pricing (Yet!)

Rick Lindner, CFO of a little telco called AT&T, recently dropped some knowledge about all things iPhone, past and future, including word that AT&T now boasts upwards of 2.5 million iPhone subscribers.

At an average of $100 per subscriber per month x 24 months per contract x 2.5 million that's a lot of green for old blue. $6 billion, to be dashboard calc precise about it.

(With Apple rumored to get $15 per subscriber per month x 24 months per contract x 2.5 million = 900 million reasons for them to favor those revenue sharing models as well...)

When it comes to iPhone 3G, however, Lindner was more reticent:

3G iPhones are Here! Well, Somewhere...

3G iPhones are Here! Well, Somewhere...

Looks like we’ll have to add analyzing shipping manifests and tracking import/export data to help wanted ads and patent watching. It’s tough being an Apple enthusiast, no?

The folks over at Import Genius have reason to believe that the 3G iPhone is already stateside. After analyzing data from thousands of U.S. customs declarations for Apple, Inc. they have found 188 unidentified containers of a product never before imported by the company. Hint, hint: 3G iPhone.

10 Reasons to Ditch Your Blackberry for the iPhone (Wait-a-Thon!)

Going along with our own Blackberry vs iPhone comparison and Crackberry's 10 Reasons Why the iPhone is NO Blackberry , we realized we should cover some basic reasons why people should ‘switch’ over to TiPb’s favorite toy. With Palm fading into obscurity and Windows Mobile feature strapped and overextended, RIM and Apple have become perhaps the two most relevant phone makers today. Which begs the question, which one should you pick?

I’ll offer you ten reasons why you should leave your Blackberry behind and choose to phone different*

*In this article, I am using the Curve as the measuring stick for all things ‘Blackberry’

3G Rumors: iPhone 3G to Support 42Mbps HSDPA+ Evolution?!

3G Rumors: iPhone 3G to Support 42Mbps HSDPA+ Evolution?!

Crikey! Add 3G speed to the list of beer-brewing, croc-hunting, and bum-booting that Australians claim to do better, stronger, and faster than just about everyone else in the world. Or so an anonymous Telstra exec would have us believe:

Jobs' Jobs Postings: RF Engineer Wanted!

Let's face it, Apple could teach the NSA a thing or two about security. Nothing like putting the fear of Steve into someone to get them to bear down and clam up. So, along with patent-watching and the occasional partner leak, about the only way to get any real information about what's new at Apple is via the good old help wanted adds.

Yesterday we mentioned in passing they were interested in a:

iPhone 2.0: Geo-Tagging!

iPhone 2.0: Geo-Tagging!

One of the hottest and most persistent rumors for the next generation iPhone is GPS, either built in or via BlueTooth hardware module (the former favored by techies, the latter by battery-lifers). One of the most constant and most rewarding (at least sometimes...) factors of the 2.0 firmware beta is developers raking through the code to find every new string and buried screen setting.

First Look: iSlsk, p2p client for iPhone

The great thing about jailbreaking (and no, it's not this) is that a lot of smart people take a look at the capabilities of the iPhone and wonder how come nobody made a (insert program here) yet? And then go and develop said program.

Case in point: A p2p client for the iPhone

Scobleize Your iPhone in 18 Easy Apps!

Robert Scoble is an internet force of nature. Depending on your point of view, even odds that force is either life-giving rain, or death-bearing inferno. A former Microsoft evangelist who acquired a huge social network following that he's dragged with him through Facebook and Twitter to his current endeavor, Fast Company, he'll tell 5,000 friends he's crying over World Wide Telescope, 20,000 people he's QIKing it live (right now!), and an entire readership just what exactly his top 18 "Star-Spangled" iPhone apps. Let's see how they stack up (provided we can hurdle the prerequisite name-dropping in the intro, 'natch!):

iHulk Smash Puny 3G Settings Rumor!

iHulk Smash Puny 3G Settings Rumor!

Kinda.

Seems the strings to set 3G preferences exist in the code of iPhone 2.0 Beta 5, but the GUI screen that was rumored to surface it was a mock-up, a photoshop, a con-job, a bamboozle.

The process used to determine that the screen was less "shot" and more "not" is rather involved and -- quite frankly -- convoluted but the bottom line remains:

We're getting a 3G iPhone. That 3G iPhone will have settings. We, as yet, have no idea what form those settings will take.

Now bring on the next rumor!

3G Rumor: iPhone 3G to Hit AT&T June 19th?

3G Rumor: iPhone 3G to Hit AT&T June 19th?

Adding further fuel to the fire that Apple Inc. will drop the 3G bomb on June 9th, during CEO Steve Jobs' Keynote address, InfoSyncWorld is claiming that, once announced, the 2nd generation iPhone will be made available via AT&T roughly 10 days later, on approximately the 18th or 19th.

InfoSyncWorld further speculates on HSDPA, GPS, Mobile TV, and other oft-cited iPhone 3G rumors.

And with the time left before WWDC growing shorter and shorter, when it comes to speculation and rumors, no doubt we ain't seen nothing yet!
