Verizon: We're Getting 4G LTE Too! Can Haz ur iPhonez?

Verizon: We're Getting 4G LTE Too! Can Haz ur iPhonez?

You've told us and told us you want the iPhone on Verizon. There's two reasons that hasn't happened already. AT&T has exclusive rights in the US (Verizon, stupidly, turned down the iPhone initially), and the iPhone is a GSM device while Verizon runs a CDMA network (think Mac vs. PC). And, hey, Sprint can't even get simultaneous voice and data going on the Pre with CDMA/EVDO, okay?

Eyes On: Sygic Turn By Turn GPS App for iPhone

Eyes On: Sygic Turn By Turn GPS App for iPhone

There you see it, folks, a real live native iPhone app that provides turn-by-turn GPS directions with voice prompts, points of interest, support for multiple countries, maps stored in-memory instead of streamed from the internet, the whole nine yards.

Working off a tip/reminder from antonioj (thanks!), I scurried off to the TeleAtlas booth at the close day here at MWC to visit Sygic, a company that makes (you guessed it) downloadable GPS apps for smartphones and PDAs. They had promised a demo of their iPhone app at MWC09 and, well, they delivered.

DocsToGo Demo'd on the iPhone!

DocsToGo Demo'd on the iPhone!

What's that? iPhone news at MWC09? It's true. I just got back from a meeting with DocsToGo and they showed off an early version of their app. So far Word document editing is a go, Spreadsheet editing is definitely in the plan but not quite up and running yet. They're tossing in document viewing for both plus PDFs as well -- which means you can have all of your documents in one spot.

Read on to find out how it all works, where the iPhone kinks are (since Apple limits what developers can do easily), and how we're loving their implementation of (in-app) Cut and Paste!

Origins of iPhone Multi-Touch... the Piano?!

Origins of iPhone Multi-Touch... the Piano?!

We know the score. Apple now holds a veritable smorgasbord of multi-touch patents, some dating way back before the iPhone, and some coming from their 2005 acquisition of a company called Fingerworks, and the innovative talents of Wayne Westerman and John Elias. But from whence did they draw their inspiration? MacRumors pulls the relevant quote from a University of Delware article:

Dear Apple: Please Steal Features From Nokia's Ovi Store

Dear Apple: Please Steal Features From Nokia's Ovi Store

If you haven't heard, Apple's a no-show here at Mobile World Congress 2009, this show pretty much belongs to Microsoft, HTC, and Nokia (with a side of Samsung and Sony Ericsson). However, as with other trade shows like CES and CTIA, Apple's presence is felt in its absence. Rather than join their brethren in the mobile community, Apple sits it out and watches while other companies are forced to make their announcements in a context Apple has created. To wit: Both Microsoft and Nokia announced App Stores this week. Microsoft's Market is basically a no-show, though, all we have is promises. Nokia's isn't ready yet either, but it will be in May.

Surprise: Apple Loves Steve Jobs and the iPhone

Surprise: Apple Loves Steve Jobs and the iPhone

Glassdoor collects data on how much employees love their boss and love their products. They also seem to collect data on the wicked obvious, at least where Apple is concerned. Flabbergasting: 91% of employees love Steve Jobs and on a scale of 1 to 5, think Apple's products rate a 3.8 (we're guessing MobileMe cost them a full point there).

Universal Charger Initiative Announced... Absent iPhone

Universal Charger Initiative Announced... Absent iPhone

No sooner did we ask you if Apple should ditch the dock, than Apple Insider reports that the mobile phone and smartphone industries are beginning to come together on a universal charging solution, and that solution is micro-USB.

So far, early signees for the 2012 initiative include AT&T, LG, Motorola, Nokia, Orange, Qualcomm, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, T-Mobile, and Vodafone. Several iPhone carriers there, but not the single iPhone creator, Apple.

Quick App: Midway's Touchmaster Volume 1 for iPhone

When Trillion-dollar stimulus packages are being passed and spent and the dollar seems to buy less and less, it's nice to find some real values in the App Store, like Touchmaster Volume 1 from Midway. At only $3.99, you get 5 games for your entertainment - that's only about $.80 cents per game (before tax, of course).

Vegas' Most Wanted: iPhone Card Counter

Vegas' Most Wanted: iPhone Card Counter

Jail or the wrong end of Tony Soprano's temper? Is there anywhere the iPhone can't get you?

TUAW reports that casinos in Nevada (and we presume elsewhere eventually if not already) have been warned to look out for next generation card counters powered by iPhone apps (the use of which, like any technological assist, is a felony in the gaming state).

Doesn't look like anyone's actually been caught doing this in the wilds of Vegas yet, though who knows what's going on in private, back room games around the country, or the world.

What's next? Someone going to sneak one onto the set of Price is Right?

Multi-Core Mobile Processors iPhone Bound?

Multi-Core Mobile Processors iPhone Bound?

We've heard before that, among other things, iPhone OS 3.0 would support quad-core processors. Of course, we haven't seen these processors yet, but now ST-Ericsson and ARM have announced they'll be giving a private sneak peak at one at Mobile World Congress. (Via MacRumors):

The technological breakthrough is the first of its kind and is based on the ARM(R) Cortex(TM)-A9 multicore processor, which represents a significant leap from previous generations of baseband/application processor architectures by providing unprecedented levels of performance and power efficiency.

Adobe Announces "Full" Flash Player for Mobile: iPhone ETA TBA

Adobe Announces "Full" Flash Player for Mobile: iPhone ETA TBA

At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona today, Adobe took the wrapper off a real for-real version of their desktop Flash player designed (and hopefully optimized) for mobile devices like the iPhone. Well, technically they took the wrappers off the wrappers, since Flash Mobile won't ship until the end of 2009 on its current schedule, and it won't support the iPhone even then, only Windows Phone 6.5 (are we allowed to call it WinPho now?), Google Android, Palm Pre, and Nokia. Even these implementations are likely to only ship in 2010.

Want Your iPhone on T-Mobile USA?

Want Your iPhone on T-Mobile USA?

We've asked if AT&T's service had made you consider dumping your iPhone 3G. But even if the iPhone was available on other US cellphone networks, what choices would you have?

Many people would love to get the iPhone on Verizon, but the current generation Verizon network is CDMA, which is not compatible with the iPhone's GSM radio. This means that, until everyone moves to LTE 4G in a few years, existing iPhones won't run on Verizon (or Sprint for that matter).
