iPhone Competition: Nokia N97 First Impressions

Our friend Matt Miller over at sister-site NokiaExperts has just posted up his first impressions of the white Nokia N97. Like most premium handsets over the last few years, the N97 has been played up as another "iPhone killer" so we figured we'd better keep an eye on it at well.

What's Matt's take away? Good but not great if we're reading it right, though Nokia is promising updates that might make it even better.

Head on over to NokiaExperts for the full rundown and video overview, and let us know what you think!

AT&T's iPhone 3G S Pre-Order Supply Depleted

AT&T's iPhone 3G S Pre-Order Supply Depleted

Once again it seems AT&T's lock down of the iPhone will be paying off in droves. It's only been a few days but yet AT&T has managed to sell each and every single iPhone 3G S that it had stored away for pre-orders. Any unlucky customer who places an order with AT&T after today will sadly have to wait an extra one to two weeks to get their hands on their new iPhone 3G S.

How To: Force Quit in iPhone 3.0

With iPhone 1.x and 2.x, you could hold down the Home button to "force quit" an application (kill the process) and return to the Home Screen. With iPhone 3.0, however, holding down the Home button now activates Voice Control on the iPhone 3G S.

So, how do you Force Quit under iPhone 3.0? iPhonejunkie3 provides the answer (via EverythingiCafe):

TiPb iPhone 3G S News Roundup

Last Monday, during the WWDC 2009 Keynote, Apple introduced the iPhone 3G S, the "S" referring to the speed (we're hoping for screaming fast). If the amount of news it's generated is any indication, we're all going to have a hard time keeping up. In an effort to help out, here are some highlight of TiPb's iPhone 3G S coverage:

Twitpocalypse Now'ish -- Is Your iPhone Twitter Client Safe?

Twitpocalypse.com defines the event as:

similar to the Y2K bug. The unique identifier associated to each tweet has now exceeded 2,147,483,6471 [...] For some of your favorite third-party Twitter services not designed to handle such a case, the sequence will suddenly turn into negative numbers. At this point, they are very likely to malfunction or crash.

Here's how it may be affecting some of your favorite iPhone Twitter clients:

Inside the New iPhone 3G S Processors: More than Just Mhz

Anandtech gives their usual in-depth look at the processors inside Apple's new iPhone 3G S. First the CPU, the new ARM Cortex A8 and the short of it is -- if the iPhone 2G and 3G were old 486 PCs, the iPhone 3G S would be a Pentium:

AT&T Offering "Loans" not "Subsidies"?

Interesting take from the Macalope this week with regards to the ongoing confusion and resentment surrounding current iPhone 3G owners and the price they'll likely have to pay when upgrading to the iPhone 3G S on AT&T. See, the Macalope believes both sides of the debate have it wrong:

Apple's Latest App Store Rejection Policy: Because We Said So

Apple's Latest App Store Rejection Policy: Because We Said So

Tim Daley let us know via Twitter that his app, What Would Chuck Do?, was rejected by Apple's iTunes App Store for the most terrifying reason imaginable. Because they said so:

Thank you for submitting WWCD - What Would Chuck Do to the App Store. We've reviewed the Application and, consistent with the criteria considered in our approval process, we have chosen not to publish this application. As you know, Apple reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to reject an application for any reason.

Regards,

iPhone Developer Program

Best Buy to Offer iPhone 3G S Insurance

Best Buy to Offer iPhone 3G S Insurance

So we all know that AT&T, for whatever reason, does not offer insurance for any iPhone. It seems as if Best Buy is now stepping up to the plate to offer it's customers some iPhone 3G S insurance, Geek Squads Black Tie Protection.

This is great news for some of you but keep in mind it comes at a pretty hefty price. Normal cell phone insurance via Best Buy will cost you anywhere from $7 to $10 a month. Not the case with iPhone 3G S, Best Buy has raised this fee to a cool $15 a month. This premium fee is most likely due to the full retail price of the 3G S being so high at $599 and $699.

UPDATE: iPhone 3.0 On-Device App Re-Downloading Redux

UPDATE: AppAdvice spoke to an Apple dev at WWDC and found out:

all of this was just a simple bug in the system. We decided to not just take their word for it, we tested all the possible scenerios we could think of and in all cases we were presented with the pleasant “You have already purchased this item. To download it again for free, select OK” message. We can confirm that repurchase option no longer appears in any instance.

Digital Trends Podcast: iPhone 3G S vs. Palm Pre!

I joined Leif Iverson on yesterday's Digital Trends Podcast, and since Dieter wasn't available, I was put in the untenable position of having to champion both the iPhone 3G S for TiPb and the Palm Pre for our sibling site, PreCentral.net. Somehow, I survived. (And had a lot of fun -- thanks Leif!)

Check it out, and let us know what you think about the upcoming rumble in the smartphone jungle!

Gang Buys own Music on iTunes with Stolen Credit Cards

Gang Buys own Music on iTunes with Stolen Credit Cards

Gizmodo made our Friday just a little more bizarrely amusing with a story about a British gang whose DJ made some music, got it up on iTunes (and Amazon) with a 40% commission, and then used stolen credit cards to buy it -- making them look popular, and $300,000 "richer" at the same time. Strangest part?

the British police won't know why they did it until they ask them?

Us neither then.

How do 40 Million iPhones/iPod touches Look as a Gaming Platform?

During the WWDC 2009 Keynote, Apple announced that over 40,000,000 iPhones and iPods touches had been sold to date. We know what that looks like in the smartphone market space, but now Gizmodo has done some research and shown us what that might just look like in the gaming platform space as well. (See graph above).

Might explain why we see so many games already, and as Gizmodo points out:
