iPhone 3G S -- Apple Delivers Mobile Video to the Masses

iPhone 3G S -- Apple Delivers Mobile Video to the Masses

Lots of smartphones have lots of features, and as Steve Jobs has said in the past -- many people don't even know about them, much less use them.

With the original iPhone, Apple popularized mobile web browsing, and the iPhone 3G too that to previously unseen levels (and AT&T has the data network woes to prove it). The App Store made getting and using mobile applications so ridiculously easy that 50,000 now fill the store and over 1 billion have been downloaded.

So now Apple is set to take on mobile video.

Apple Demonstrates Voice Control for iPhone 3G S

Apple Demonstrates Voice Control for iPhone 3G S

In one of the more impressive demonstrations during the iPhone 3G S introduction, Apple showed off a new feature -- Voice Control.

To activate it, you hold down the "home" button (previously reserved for "force quit"). When you hear the sound, you're good to speak!

It can be used to make a call by saying either the name or number. Voice Control will repeat what you say for confirmation.

It can also be used to tell the iPod app to play a song, play a playlist, shuffle, activate Genius, or even tell you what song is currently playing.

Most impressive? It will be available in a ton of languages! (See full list after the break!)

AT&T -- MMS Later. Tethering... Um... Er... Bai!

AT&T -- MMS Later. Tethering... Um... Er... Bai!

Although humorous for the crowd attending the WWDC Keynote today, when Apple VP of iPhone Software, Scott Forestall, announced MMS and Tethering, AT&T being deferred until later this summer on the first count, and totally glossed over on the second count, likely won't be as amusing for US iPhone 3G and iPhone 3G S owners who will miss out on fairly standard functionality other carriers and regions may get on 3.0 launch come June 17.

2008 iPhone 3G Now Priced to Move! $99 Starting Today!

2008 iPhone 3G Now Priced to Move! $99 Starting Today!

When Tim Cook said Apple wasn't going to leave a price umbrella for the competition, did anyone really think he meant the (as of this writing still) current 2008 iPhone 3G would sell for $99 on contract?

Of course, exact pricing will vary by region/carrier and eligibility, contract-wise. Still, if a new customer can walk in AT&T, drop $99, and walk out with a still highly functional iPhone 3G with free upgrade to 3.0...

Hot.

Who knows how long it will last, so if that's your magic number, go get it!

iPhone 3G S - 2x Faster, but Still no 802.11n

29

iPhone 3G S - 2x Faster, but Still no 802.11n

Looks like DaringFireball.net nailed it: the S in iPhone 3G S stands for speed. Faster processors (we're guessing both CPU and GPU in line with new ARM and PowerVR chips), new OpenGL ES 2.0 implementation (no word on OpenCL yet, which leverages GPUs and CPUs).

HSPA cell downloads are also boosted up to 7.2 Mbps, where available.

Missing in the speed-boost department, however, was any word on support for 802.11n Wi-Fi according to the Tech Specs.

Guess we're waiting on fourth gen for that?

Apple Store Down!

Apple Store Down!

And Lo, Apple opened the sixth seal and there was silence online. The Apple Store was down. (Seventh sign is Schiller hitting the stage, 'natch).

Will we see an actual new iPhone up for order, or just pre-sales info like last year? Or is this for something else, non-iPhone related entirely.

We'll know in less than 1 hour!

Pre-Review: Motorola HT820 Stereo Bluetooth Headset for iPhone 3.0

Pre-Review: Motorola HT820 Stereo Bluetooth Headset for iPhone 3.0

Come this “summer”, iPhone 3.0 — see our walkthrough — will allow iPhone 3G (and perhaps next-generation iPhone users) to enjoy new Bluetooth functionality including stereo headsets, both the A2DP audio and ARCP control protocols. For consumers, the Motorola HT820 Stereo Bluetooth headset (available from our sibling store, WMExperts) may be an option you want to consider come release day. For developers testing using the A2DP/ARCP profiles on the iPhone 3.0 Beta, they might even be something you want to consider now.

The Curious Case of iVidCam - Should Two Wrongs Make an Acceptance?

6

The Curious Case of iVidCam - Should Two Wrongs Make an Acceptance?

Short story: GP Apps made iVidCam, a video recording app. Apple rejected it for using undocumented APIs. The developers appealed on the grounds that other camera-related apps also use undocumented APIs and demanded Apple allow it in, and let them sell it for 2 months before Apple released their own video recording functionality, as anticipated for WWDC 2009. Apple thanked them for pointing out other API violators, said they would investigate, and let the rejection stand.

Long story, including personal response from Apple VP of marketing, Phil Schiller: See GPApps.com.
