iPhone 4 and the App Store set Guinness World Records

Apple’s iPhone 4 and App Store have both received entries into the Guinness World Records. The iPhone takes the record for the fastest selling portable gaming system and the App Store for the most popular application market.

The iPhone 4 award has been based on analyst estimates of first day sales of 1.5 million units which easily topped the Playstation Portable which managed a meagre 200,000 units. The App Store has achieved three records, grabbing the “most popular application marketplace”, “largest downloadable video game store” and the “largest launch line-up of any gaming system.”

Fake iPhone stash thrown out of 18th floor window after police raid

What do you do if you’re a maker of fake iPhones in China and the police are battering your door in? Throw them out of your window that’s what! Not really the best idea if you happen to be on the eighteenth floor though...

This is what happened recently at a Shenzhen shop, when four fake iPhone dealers took the decision to dump their inventory to avoid prosecution. They tried to throw nearly one thousand cloned smartphones out of the eighteenth story window. Some of the phones were even said to be labelled as the yet to be announced iPhone 5! The police finally caught them burning transaction records but managed to recover a customer database.

iPhone 5 release pool: 'iPhone 4S' won't support LTE, arriving in September with Sprint & T-Mobile support?

Forbes is reporting on a research note from analyst Peter Misek, who claims Apple will be releasing the iPhone 5 in September. Misek states Apple will be going with 'iPhone 4S' as the name, following in the footsteps of the 3G to 3GS upgrade, and will not support LTE because the Qualcomm chipset isn't ready just yet. He also believes Sprint and T-Mobile will be onboard at launch.

Cydia Search now available from your browser

Planet-iPhones has released a browser-based Cydia Search.

You can browse cydia's default repositories, or add your own, which the website will refresh every hour. You can also search through categories or look for a specific app directly.

The app view on the site is very clean and and clearly lists: the description, the price, the developer and the repository including whether its from a trusted or untrusted source. It also shows, the iPhone's cydia UI, for screenshots and any other notes.

Its pretty clean, simple to use and a great alternative way to searching cydia apps when you may not have your iPhone or iPad handy, or if you're not jailbroken.

Tell us, will you use this as an alternative cydia search?

Jabra STONE2 BT headset give-away - Become TiPb's Facebook friend!

TiPb nation, as you may or may not be aware, a couple of weeks ago the TiPb Facebook page (along with a few other prominent tech sites) was torn down and it took Facebook the better part of a day to figure out how they were gamed and get it back online. And frankly, we're not sure all our TiPb Facebook friends made it through the ordeal with us.

So, we're calling all iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Apple TV lovers, we're asking all gadget enthusiasts and techies -- we're counting on each and every one of you to head on over to TiPb's newly restored Facebook page and become our friend. (i.e. go to the page and hit the "Like" button!)

In return we'll give you the very best in iOS coverage on Facebook... and we'll give one of you (old friend or new!) one of these gorgeous Jabra STONE2 Bluetooth headsets courtesy of the TiPb Accessory Store! (W00t!)

Details after the break, but really... you've friended us already, right?!

Samsung announce 10.1-inch 2560 x 1600 resolution display, paving the way for a Retina Display iPad 3?

Samsung announce 10.1-inch 2560 x 1600 resolution display, paving the way for a Retina Display iPad 3?

Samsung has just announced that it will be demonstrating a new display panel for touch screen devices at the SID Display Week 2011 next week in Los Angeles. The display will have a huge resolution of 2560 x 1600 @ 300dpi and will be a 10.1-inch panel.

What is interesting to us is that the display may pave the way for the highly demanded Retina Display in the next version of the iPad. One of the reasons it failed to materialize in the iPad 2 was put down to power consumption. The new Samsung display uses a technology known as PenTile which is said to draw 40% less power consumption. PenTile has been developed by Samsung's partner Nouvoyance.
