iPhone in HK: 3G, WiFi, and... Unlocked? Ho-a!

iPhone in HK: 3G, WiFi, and... Unlocked? Ho-a!

Who said iPhone's "don't hit back"?

The Boy Geniuses Report that while China may be eunuch-izing their iPhone, the special administrative zone which is Hong Kong will be getting the full on 3G, and unlocked to boot. So any Mainlanders dreading the "just no internet" model are only a hop, skip, and ferry away from "freedom" (and the US$692/$794 price tags that goes along with it).

Do-Tse, Apple!

Anyone planning on picking up one of these little dragons?

iPhone 2.2: Safari Tweaked, Cut and Paste Freaked?

iPhone 2.2: Safari Tweaked, Cut and Paste Freaked?

Wired's blog picked up a story from iPhone Atlas today about a minor MobileSafari browser UI change that sees the (defaults to Google) search box surfaced right on top beside the URL address box (currently it only pops up when the top box is activated to save on vertical real estate). To compensate, the Refresh button gets demoted and tucked inside the refresh box. Not sure about the usability on this change yet...?

iPhone Gaming: Block Breaker Deluxe Developers Speak!

With all the hubbub surrounding the App Store these days, the blogophiles among us may forget that, for casual users, everything is pretty sweet. Browse. Tap. Download. Launch. For mobile gaming fans this is especially true. Check out the Top Apps list, and you'll routinely see games hogging most of the spots. Don't think this has escaped attention either. Says Block Breaker Deluxe (available via the iTunes App Store) developer Gameloft:

Why No iPhone 3G Unlock / New iPod Touch Jailbreak? And 2.2 Already Pwnd?

Why No iPhone 3G Unlock / New iPod Touch Jailbreak? And 2.2 Already Pwnd?

Did Apple finally bring the hounds to the old iPhone jailbreak/unlock cat and mouse game?

Maybe. It's been over 2 months and while the miraculous iPhone DevTeam has jailbroken the iPhone 3G, unlocking the device to work on any carrier has thus far eluded them. Likewise, the brand new iPod Touch -- which might be a sign of things to come with the next iPhone as well -- has proven more resistant to Jailbreaking. Says the DevTeam:

iPhone 3G vs T-Mobile G1: Hardware Shootout!

iPhone 3G vs T-Mobile G1: Hardware Shootout!

If you didn’t know, Google and T-Mobile held a small event that introduced the world to Android and the first Android device, the T-Mobile G1. And though Android impressed many (TiPb included), a lot of people scratched their heads when it came to the T-Mobile G1. Sure it packed a lot of features, controls, layouts, etc in one device but looks-wise it just didn’t blow anybody away. Is this really the device that Google is going to use to introduce the world to Android?

So we decided to take a closer look at the hardware and see how it compares to the iPhone 3G!

Read on to see how the iPhone 3G compares to the T-Mobile G1

iPhone 3G in China: Minus the 3G and WiFi... Aiya!?

iPhone 3G in China: Minus the 3G and WiFi... Aiya!?

If this is not bizarre, I don't know what is. Customers looking to purchase a iPhone 3G in China will soon be able to do so. Just a little catch though, minus the 3G and toss in the omission of WiFi.

China Mobile does not have a 3G network so I understand them asking Apple to disable 3G but going a step further asking to disabling WiFi as well?! That leaves all of the owners of the iPhone 3G (don't forget to take away that 3G) with a slow 2G data connection. China Mobile might as well sell the iPhone 3G as a very nice paperweight to all of their customers. Exactly why China Mobile would disable WiFi is way beyond me.

What Features Do You Want in iPhone 2.2?

86

What Features Do You Want in iPhone 2.2?

Roughly half a second after Apple began seeding Beta 1 of Firmware 2.2 to select developers, we began wondering: what we gonna get?! Firmware 2.1 handled the stability. Now we want some new features!

The usual suspects sound like a (still) broken record: cut/copy/paste, turn-by-turn GPS, video recording, Flash support, and MMS.

The recently "pushed" back include: Notification Server support to simulate multitasking for App Store apps (like instant messenger).

For us: unified inbox, email aliases, some Squirelfish-boosted Safari browsing, App Store refunds for duds, and pervasive landscape mode would be nice.

College Humor: Android vs. the iPhone

Okay, phew, it's not just us. Seems everyone is being swept up in the iPhone vs. Android hype, including the fun(nerer)-loving folks over at College Humor, who wrote in to tell us:

Yesterday, Google introduced their new Android cell phone platform, which is expected to bring big competition to the iPhone, but people are already starting to notice a few glitches with the new phone's features. Specifically the Did-You-Mean feature.

Visual hilarity ensues, so be sure to go check it out!

iPhone 2.2 Firmware Beta 1 Seeded to Select Developers

iPhone 2.2 Firmware Beta 1 Seeded to Select Developers

'Tis soon the season. No, not fall, but new firmware season as Apple has released the first beta for firmware 2.2. Following on the 8 betas for 2.0 (released July 11, which turned out a little on the undercooked side...), and 4 for 2.1 (released September 12, which changed from feature bump to stability patch), 2.2 will hopefully bring us a little Notification Server love, and who knows what else? (Not going to say cut and paste -- a blogger can only get their heart broken so often!). Says Macrumors:

How Does Android Compare to the iPhone? Top 5 Wins and Losses

How Does Android Compare to the iPhone? Top 5 Wins and Losses

Sure, on the surface Google's Android seems more like a shot through the heart of Windows Mobile -- or the head of Palm's Linux-based OS 2.0 aspirations -- but while those platforms enjoy their own historical and market share, it's Apple's iPhone that has all the mind share of late. That means, despite Google's CEO being on the Apple Board of Directors, Google's Maps, Search, and other services having a prominent place on both devices, and -- let's face it -- Google's full on tech-crush for the iPhone -- no one is going to hesitate to pit the two systems head-to-head. Including us!

So, what advantages does each one have? What drawbacks? Here they are, in our opinion: the top five iPhone vs. Android Wins and Losses... after the break!
