T-Mobile Germany losing iPhone exclusivity?

T-Mobile Germany losing iPhone exclusivity?

T-Mobile has been the exclusive carrier of the iPhone in Germany since the first iPhone in 2007, however there is new evidence to show that T-Mobile may lose its exclusivity to O2 and Vodafone in the coming weeks.

  • The O2 Germany website, has launched a ‘keep me informed’ page, that offers “the latest news and everything to know about the iPhone 4 on O2”

  • The Vodafone website has launched a similar page that allows you to sign up and select which iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS you want to be notified about.

Both carriers are yet to announce any official pricing or release date, however one source at iPhone-Ticker.de has said that Vodafone will have iPhone 4’s starting Wednesday 27th October, with prices starting at €729 and as high as €849, off contract.

Rumoured contract prices start at €169,90 for the handset and €45 a month for the low-tier contract, to as high as €119,95 a month, with the handset at €1 for the higher-tier contract.

This marks the end of T-Mobile’s exclusivity in Germany, and sees them join the likes of the UK and Canada in the list of multiple-carrier countries. Unless and until Verizon iPhone (or Sprint or T-Mobile) rumors prove true, the US remains exclusive to AT&T.

So, any T-Mobile Germany iPhone users tempted to switch?

ntel acknowledges that iPad is eating away at overall computer sales

In their summer earnings call earlier this evening, Intel conceded that Apple's iPad has eaten away at overall computer sales since the revolutionary tablet device was released in April. Electronista reports:

"There was "softness" in sales mainly in the US and Western Europe, both of which have been cornerstones of iPad sales. Executives said Apple's tablet was likely taking away sales "at the margin" as customers without a large income often had to choose between one device or another."

Apple releases iOS 4.2 beta 3 for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch for developers

Featuring interviews with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak; former Apple CEO John Scully; journalist turned venture capitalist Michael Moritz; Dreamworks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg; former Apple “Mac Evangelist” and Silicon Valley entrepreneur Guy Kawasaki and Robert X Cringely, technology journalist and former Apple employee.

Audiopress for iPhone - app review

Audiopress for iPhone - app review

Audiopress for iPhone is an amazing little app that will let you aggregate all of your podcasts, live radio, and pretty much any news audio into one easy to use app.  It also allows for background audio so you can start playing a podcast within the app, close it out, and continue browsing or doing whatever you'd like while it streams in the background.  Podcasts can quickly start taking up a lot of space on your device if you're bad about deleting them (which I am), so streaming them may be a much better option for those of you who'd like to save space on your device.  Hit the jump for more info and a promo video!

Verizon iPhone: What you'll gain and what you'll give up

Verizon rumors have come to a boil over the past few weeks.  Not only are we hearing Verizon rumors from reputable sources like the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times, we've heard from Verizon on the fact that they're trying to find a way to integrate simultaneous voice and data into their network.  Some analysts may say this is to prepare for the launch of an iPhone on Verizon.

Daylight savings brings annoying alarm clock bug. Software fix on the way.

Daylight savings brings annoying alarm clock bug. Software fix on the way.

iPhone users living in southern Australia were supposed to get an extra hour of sleep with the change to daylight savings on October 3, but didn't because the alarms on their iPhones went off an hour early. Apple knows about the bug and it should be fixed in the next update.

This is a very strange glitch because the iPhone's clock correctly updated with daylight savings, but the recurring alarm clock does not recognize the new time. However, a one-time alarm works just fine.

Apple Trademark Request on "There's An App For That" Approved

Apple Trademark Request on "There's An App For That" Approved

Since the birth of the App Store and their ever popular commercials back in 2009, Apple and iOS devices have always been associated with the popular slogan "There's an app for that".  It only makes sense Apple would want to trademark the slogan that made the App Store so popular.  It's not just an advertising tool anymore, it's become so much more than that within our culture.  I frequently joke around when someone asks me how to do something, a frequent response to any iOS device user is "There's an app for that."  And normally, there is.
