Apple says Droid X does attenuate too

Apple says Droid X does attenuate too

Apple has posted yet another competing smartphone attenuation video, this time rounding out their infamous collection with Motorola's just-launched Verizon Droid X. The video shows the aforementioned monster of a phone dropping from 3 out of 4 bars to none when death-gripped.

Once again, however, no demonstration is made of any iPhone 4-style death-touch de-tuning.

So yeah, you can imagine how our friends over at Android Central are reacting...

Who does that leave for next, Palm, LG? Does Apple need to finish what they've started or just let it go already?

Let us know what your current bumper case status is in the poll above, and give us the details in the comments. Overall, how's it going for you? Is Apple handling this right?

Potential Hiccup in iPhone 4 Free Case Program?

Potential Hiccup in iPhone 4 Free Case Program?

It's cool that Apple is willing to give us  free bumpers and cases, but their system may be a little "flawed" to say the least.  After the announcement went up, I immediately downloaded the bumper app and typed in my iTunes password, it brought me to the selection screen. (By the way, is anyone else only seeing black bumpers? Where's all the colors?!?)  Seeing only black was available, I went ahead and got a black.  My order processed no problem. Unless you count the ridiculous 3-5 week shipping window.

Otterbox Defender Case for iPhone 4 - first look

Otterbox Defender Case for iPhone 4 - first look

We're planning something really fun for later in the summer and Otterbox was kind enough to send us out some Otterbox Defender Cases for iPhone 4 so we could start the prep work. If you've used an Otterbox Defender on previous iPhones, you know what you need to know. Same great protection, all new form factor. If you haven't used one before, this is basically the full plate armor of iPhone protection in AD&D parlance. You have the hard plastic inner shell for structural support, the soft silicone outer skin for grip and scuff proofing, and a holster to keep it loaded and ready to go on your hip.

They're just starting to come out, so if you absolutely have to have it as soon as possible, head on over to the TiPb iPhone 4 accessory store and place your <a href="http://store.imore.com/otterbox-defender-series-case/4A104A7227.htm?utm_term=iphone-4-cases&utm_content=post&utm_campaign=community&utm_source=d_im&utm_medium=content"">pre-order.

Pictures after the break and much more to come!

White iPhone 4 delayed until "later this year"

White iPhone 4 delayed until "later this year"

Apple has just issued a statement on the white iPhone and it's not good news for those still holding out for the now almost mythical device:

White models of Apple’s new iPhone 4 have continued to be more challenging to manufacture than we originally expected, and as a result they will not be available until later this year. The availability of the more popular iPhone 4 black models is not affected.

Anyone still going to wait? Sound off in comments...

[Apple PR, thanks Jake for the tip!]

AT&T Activates 400-500K iPads 3G in Q3, using more data than iPhone

AT&T Activates 400-500K iPads 3G in Q3, using more data than iPhone

In addition to the 3.2 million iPhones AT&T activated on their network last quarter they also switched on 400-500K iPad 3G. What's more:

It's "surprising" how many business customers are approaching AT&T about the iPad.

Business Insider quips that Microsoft should look out, but given the profit share Apple has taken on iPhone and the low margins of typical PC hardware, what damage they may not do to unit sales they may well do to revenue.

What's also interesting is that iPad users are consuming more data than iPhone users though less than 3G laptop users and 75-80% are on the unlimited 2GB plan.

NOVA gets Retina Display and Gyroscope support

NOVA gets Retina Display and Gyroscope support

Gameloft's NOVA has just received one awesome update; high-res retina display support and the ability to use the gyroscope (looks like Gun Range proved useful after all) for iPhone 4. First let's talk graphics...

This game looks absolutely amazing. Color. Crispness. It's all there. No aliasing problems, things just look great. Now for the not so great news, the Gyroscope.

I have been playing with the NOVA update for the last couple of days and for the life of me, I can't seem to feel comfortable using the gyroscope in conjunction with the traditional controls. Sure, the gyroscope is precise. Sure you can pivot in a circle and the game will rotate with you. But when it comes to playing in a firefight with aliens, it is hard to be using the traditional controls to pan while using the gyroscope to aim. Perhaps I just don't have the reflexes of my youth, but I found the experience frustrating. Thankfully you can turn the gyroscope controls off.

This was just my experience, how are you liking the update? Let us know in the comments!

Video after the break.
