Analysts Disappointed with Early iPhone Activation Numbers from AT&T, Blame Global Warming

AT&T doused analyst's wild expectations yesterday by announcing that on the weekend of launch, AT&T saw just 146,000 iPhone activations, well short of expectations. That's activation, not actual sales. Analysts had projected that during the same period more than 500,000 iPhones had sold through. Needless to say these two numbers don't jive, leading many firms like Piper Jafrey to question how successful iPhone sales really are.

I had the same reaction when taking my dog to go potty this morning. After feeding him an entire bag of Puppy Chow, I expected far more substantial return. Instead the results were weak and disappointing. As a result, I am placing both my dog and iPhone on eBay.

First 3rd Party App: Hello, World

The iPhone Dev wiki team ran the first 3rd party application on the iPhone. The program is a simple one, it spits out "Hello, World" when run; 'Hello, World' is typically one of the simpler things to program on most platforms and that it was chosen as the 1st app is unsurprising. Here's the notice they posted on their site:

Apple To Add New iPhone Models and Grow Product Line This Holiday?

Apple To Add New iPhone Models and Grow Product Line This Holiday?

Santa is watching you. Well Steve Jobs is anyway. AppleInsider says that Apple will introduce new iPhone models in Q4, hoping to expand its Smartphone line.

Extremely reputable sources have told AppleInsider in recent weeks that the company's iPhone roadmap for the 2007 calendar year includes not one but two distinct models, the second of which is set to turn up just months after the first. According to one source, development of the second model has followed so closely on the heels of the inaugural iPhone that it was making its final pass through engineering around the same time that today's model hit the manufacturing lines back in May or early June.

Apple Developing Lyrics Display for iPhone

AppleInsider reports that Apple has filed a patent on technology used to dynamically display text, such as song lyrics, in a motion perspective. The text would scroll or otherwise move across the display, adapting to user interaction. Hmm...sounds a bit like CoverFlow, doesn't it?

Apple Could Beat Windows Mobile, And So Could Your Mother

Apple Could Beat Windows Mobile, And So Could Your Mother

InfoWorld's Oliver Rist (no relation to Charles Dicken's character) thinks that Microsoft needs to scramble its developers to fix and improve Windows Mobile before Apple eats their lunch.

Windows Mobile may have all the paper advantages — openness, Microsoft app compatibility, a great price, and loads of third-party support — but if users can't rely on it out there in the wild, woolly, and unsupported field, none of that means very much.

The article has more of a pro-Microsoft slant, designed to illustrate what Micorosft needs to fix with its mobile platform in order to slam the door in Apple's face. Still worth a morning read.

From the Department of Obvious Trends Comes This Newsflash: iPhone to Spur Mobile Video

Ring *ring

Hello? Barnes? Ah, good, I reached you. Listen old chap, I've just been glancing over the newswire coming across my teletype and apparently this so called iPhone thing seems to be causing quite a stir. Yes, quite.

This website claims that some commoners may even watch video on the bloody thing. Yes, rubbish...that's what I thought as well, but apparently it's quite true. What? No, no I don't want one. I still don't believe there is anything to this whole notion of mobile communications. It's a mere fad, nothing too it really. Give me a good landline connection and a Padilla cigar any day. Must run along now. Ta!

Scoble Tracks the Ever Growing iCult, Wears Tinfoil Hat

Robert Scoble grabs his camera and heads to the Web 2.0 Summit Party to interview high profile attendees. He says that everyone there seemed to have an iPhone, except for himself. Come on, Robert - you know you want to join the cult. Drink from the fountain of Kool-Aid, it will make you sleepy.

My favorite quote comes from his interrogation of Robert Sears, Chief Architect of Multimedia Experiences at Nokia, about the Finnish company's answer to the iPhone...

Saying Goodbye to Palm

20

Saying Goodbye to Palm

As a mobile enthusiast, I own (or have owned) a cross sample of every major platform on the market today, ranging from Windows Mobile, Symbian, embedded Linux (well, one flavor anyway), and BlackBerry OS. I first cut my teeth on mobile technology with PalmOS way back in 1997 when a small startup named Palm Computing introduced a product called the Palm Pilot, launching an industry of software and hardware development. The Pilot 1000 was my very first PDA, and I immediately fell in love with the software and its hallmark simplicity. That device kindled a love affair with mobile technology that has lasted to this day.

Here, Have Some Wallpaper, The First One is Free

Here, Have Some Wallpaper, The First One is Free

The iPhone has turned me into a wallpaper junkie. Apple shipped a decent set of default backgrounds, but most of them are not up to my tastes. So I culled various desktop wallpapers and imagery from my personal collection and downsized them to iPhone's HVGA display resolution.

These are my favorites. Enjoy.
