AT&T temporarily suspends iPhone 4 pre-orders

After what can only be called a complete clusterfrak of an iPhone 4 pre-order day, where systems went up and down and eager customers spent hours, if not dozens of hours, just trying to get a confirmed order, AT&T has shut down the system -- hopefully to reboot into a kinder, better Matrix.

Apple still seems to be taking pre-orders, though the initial batch has sold out and the next one is only guaranteed for delivery on July 2.

Apple now sold out of iPhone 4 as well? New orders (sometimes) pushed back to July 2

Apple now sold out of iPhone 4 as well? New orders (sometimes) pushed back to July 2

We tried to end the day, we really did, but the July 2 shipping date now being presented by Apple Online Store for iPhone 4 yanked us back up off the floor. We heard before AT&T was out of launch-day stock, could Apple be as well?

Looks that way, but sometimes when we refresh the site it's going back to June 24. Right now it's at July 2 again. Maybe they're having trouble coming to terms with it?

Either way, we're already trying to imagine the massive sales number Apple's post pre-order iPhone press release will read. (Can we call it an even applezillion sold?)

XGear Shield Case for iPad – accessory review

XGear Shield Case for iPad – accessory review

If you’re looking for a sturdy and transparent skin, the XGear Shield case for iPad for $29.95 may be the case for you.

The XGear Shield is made from dual-compound materials that creates a shock absorbing bumper on the edges. Translation: it has thick edges that fit securely to the iPad that can reduce damage to the corners if bumped. Though not completely transparent, XGear Shield has more of a frosted backing that and not only looks good but totally protects the back and sides of iPad and gives you complete piece of mind from scratches.

There are two things that I really like about this case. The first is how secure it is. There are some cases that fit, but the edges and corners are loose. While this may make for easy removal, I fear it can get caught on something and slip off of the iPad. This is not the case with the XGear Shield. The edges are actually a challenge to put on and remove so you know the case isn't going anywhere. On the downside, it doesn't allow for docking with the iPad dock. All of the openings are there, but the power button has given me some challenges. Turning on is easy though by tapping the home button instead.

Video and photos after the break!

CNBC talks to AT&T CEO regarding iPad adoption and network quality improvements

CNBC talks to AT&T CEO regarding iPad adoption and network quality improvements

Today AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson spoke with CNBC in a lengthy interview. Discussed first was the relationship AT&T has with Apple and how the iPad is doing in the business sector.

"I think this is going to be really a significant product for enterprise. You think about, you know, our objective is just to mobilize everything. Whether it's in the home or the workplace, this is a device that really lets you think differently about mobilizing all of the applications that you see in business. And we're getting a strong interest from our large business customers on bringing this device into their environments, and whether it's working with the salesforce, whether it's order takers, any number of areas, are really excited about bringing this device in."

Skipping near the end of the interview Stephenson touches on AT&T's network improvements - mainly in New York.

"The uptake and the demand was dramatic, and there are particular markets like New York. The demand was really impressive, and it had an effect on voice quality. We have been going hard at the voice quality issue in New York, and made tremendous progress. And so, we're getting to a point where voice quality is getting to where it should be, and mobile broadband is the fastest in the nation. as measured by any number of independent people."

So how about it New Yorkers, has the quality of your service increased or are you still stuck with dropped call after dropped call? Sound off in the comments below!

It's too bad nobody brought up the question about the iPhone 4 launch issues that are still continuing as of right now. To be fair to AT&T though, Sprints whole system was shut down from the EVO launch for a few hours. How many EVO's were sold on launch? Now compare that to the amount of iPhone 4 pre-orders were happening today (presumably a much higher number).

Apple needs to get on more than one network in the US.
