iPhone 3GS Doesn't Support HSUPA for High Speed 3G Upload

Macworld is reporting that while the iPhone 3GS chipset does indeed support the new (for North America!) HSPDA download speed of 7.2 Mbps, Apple didn't see fit to equip it with the matching HSUPA upload speed of 1.4/1.9 Mbps. Indeed, they claim the iPhone 3GS will top out its uploads (sending videos to YouTube, emailing photos, etc.) at a comparatively anemic 384 Kbps.

Will Apple's iPhone Surpass Nokia by 2012?

Will Apple's iPhone Surpass Nokia by 2012?

Matt Miller over at our sibling site, NokiaExperts, takes issue with a prediction that Nokia will drop to 20% while Apple and the iPhone soar to 35% worldwide market share by 2012:

The iPhone has a singular form factor and has been doing incredible the first couple of years in existence. However, as more Android devices roll out, Windows Mobile 7 shows up in force, RIM keeps chipping away with the BlackBerry OS, and Palm struggles to find itself with WebOS I doubt Apple will pass up Nokia.

Matt also points out that Symbian Foundation could replace the ailing S60 by then as well, making the situation even more of an unknown.

iPhone 3GS -- Twice the RAM... 10x the Impact?

iPhone 3GS -- Twice the RAM... 10x the Impact?

tap tap tap points out something that perhaps should have been obvious from the start regarding the iPhone 3GS' 256MB of RAM -- that doubling the memory, once the OS loads and programs start eating away at it, often leaves more than double the free space.

iPhone 3.0 Still Causing Wi-Fi Problems?

Back when iPhone 3.0 launched, we heard Wi-Fi was giving problems to some -- primarily iPod touch -- users. Various network resets or OS restores seem to have quieted that down, but now TUAW is reporting that the newly launched iPhone 3GS might be suffering Wi-Fi troubles as well:

Wall Street Journal Profiles Hackers Behind the iPhone Jailbreak

The Wall Street Journal, yanking the curtain away from the wizards behind the iPhone jailbreaking scene, reveals a group of highly precocious teens, twenties, and thirty-somethings.

Now, if you're the kind of personal who gets disappointed when they find out Hulk Hogan's real name, prepare yourself for the unmasking of Chronic and Dev Team members -- it's equally less-than-cool.

If you just want a peak behind the scenes, however, check it out:

Third Generation iPod touch Now Being Tested?

Third Generation iPod touch Now Being Tested?

Apple's third generation iPod touch seems to be going out for a little web-based test drive. Designated iPod touch 3,1, we first saw code hints of it in the iPhone 3.0 beta firmware, and then in rumors about the iPod touch getting a camera. Now, according to app analytics provider PinchMedia:

we’ve been noticing an “iPod 3,1″ string appearing in our version reporting, signifying what we believe to be a new yet-to-be-released version of the iPod Touch.

Amazon Spits Delicious Library for iPhone Out of App Store

Amazon Spits Delicious Library for iPhone Out of App Store

Amazon, citing new provisions of their API/data terms of use, informed Delicious Library developer Wil Shipley that if he didn't immediately remove Delicious Library for iPhone from the iTunes App Store, they'd remove his ability to use Amazon APIs and data from all of his products, including the long-standing Delicious Library for Mac.

Just when we thought Apple had a hold on mind-boggling app blocking. Sigh.

TUAW quotes the relevant new passage:

Quick App 3.0: G-Map East and West Now Feature Turn-by-Turn, Voice-Guided Navigation

G-Map from XRoad sent us a postcard from their drive up highway 3.0 and let us know they've come back with great new features like real-time voice guidance and turn-by-turn arrows.

And as always, since G-Map 1.3.1 downloads its maps to your iPhone, you don't need a data or Wi-Fi connection to use them, which comes in handy when in-between cities and off the grid.

Does the iPhone Need a Hardware Keyboard?

Does the iPhone Need a Hardware Keyboard?

When Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone back at Macworld 2007, he prefaced the introduction by saying what was wrong with current not-so-smartphones -- the hardware keyboard. They don't go away when you don't need them. They don't change if you switch from text entry to bitmap editing, for example, And if you come up with a great idea later, you can't go back an add an extra button.

Now it's 2009 and Apple has released the iPhone 3GS, yet many people, including notable technologists, have called the lack of a physical keyboard a deal-breaker.

Is it? Let's take a look after the break.
