Rumors! Mythical iTablet Event in January, iPhone Devs Asked to make "Full Screen" Apps

From analysts to so-called insiders, the rumors are growing that Apple just might have an event in January to just maybe announce the just possibly new iTablet with just a few select iPhone apps running full screen, resolution independent by showtime.

Meh. Apple has held January events for a long time -- they introduced the iPhone at Macworld 2007 after all, and while Apple has pulled out of that event this year, there's nothing to stop them trying to once-again upstage CES and put on their own invitation-only shindig sometime during the first month of 2010.

Review: Plantronics Discovery 975 Bluetooth Headset for iPhone 3G/3GS

Review: Plantronics Discovery 975 Bluetooth Headset for iPhone 3G/3GS

The past few weeks I've been lucky enough to test out the latest and greatest Plantronics Discovery 975 Bluetooth headset for the iPhone [iMore Store Link - $119.95]. I've tested a lot of Bluetooth headsets since I've been here at TiPb and while some have been all around impressive, others have left me scratching my head. Is the Discovery 975 a definite keeper, or just a dud?

See for yourself after the break!

UPDATED: The Competition: Google Nexus One Phone Gets Hands-on, UI Walkthrough

UPDATED: The Competition: Google Nexus One Phone Gets Hands-on, UI Walkthrough

Gizmodo got somes hands on a Google Phone Nexus One and shared some impressions.

A tad thinner, lighter, and "silky"-er feeling in the hand compared to the iPhone, Nexus One also sports a less cheap, more rubbery back. (The rubber lobby is no doubt thrilled with that bump in cachet). Its screen POPS and blows everything away, and it's (likely 1GHz processor powered) web rendering is a bit faster than the iPhone 3GS, both of which are faster than the Droid. (Though the iPhone 3GS still outscored all comers on JavaScript benchmarks. Nitro FTW!) It's also got a crazy animated background system that can launch bit blocks or ripple when you touch it, but becomes a visualizer when music is playing. Like Sense UI's animated weather, that kind of eye candy is just sweet.

With iPhone 4.0 and a 4th generation iPhone due June/July 2010, how selfish are we to beg all comers to "bring the awesome!" so that Apple is incentivized to bring their own innovation to market faster? Exactly this selfish: well done, Nexus One, you're not failing to impress.

Speaking of which, check out Android Guys video UI walkthrough after the break, and tell us what you think!

UPDATED: Engadget scores an invitation-only pre-sale rumor starting Jan. 5 with a T-Mobile rollout, perhaps, to follow. Also, specs galore, with what looks like 802.11n(!) support, 8??x480 WVGA AMOLED screen, 1 GHz proc, and all the trimmings.

iPhone from a Windows Phone User's Perspective -- Smartphone Round Robin

Rumor: 4th Generation iPhone to Pack 5 Megapixel Camera?

Rumor: 4th Generation iPhone to Pack 5 Megapixel Camera?

Digitimes is reporting that OmniVision has received an order from Apple for 40-45 million CMOS sensors packing 5 megapixels, bound for next year's 4th generation iPhone. That's nearly double the unites -- and a huge increase in pixel count -- from the iPhone 3GS cameras OmniVision currently supplies.

As with all next-gen iPhone rumors, take this one with an iTablet-sized grain of salt, but it does make competitive sense for Apple to bump the camera next year, among other things (cough iPhone HD cough).

iPhone 4.0 Spotted Online Again!

iPhone 4.0 Spotted Online Again!

Last time iPhone 4.0 was spotted in a server log, now it's been seen again in a developer's Pinch Media analytics. Sure, this stuff can and will be faked, but given that Apple typically introduces new OS versions in March, and that iPhone 3.2 is still nowhere to be seen, maybe they are concentrating on 4.0 and early tests are already underway?

'Tis the season to see rumors, if nothing else!

Nielson: iPhone Most Popular Phone in the US

Nielson reports that the iPhone 3G is the most popular phone in the US with 4% "embedded base of all subscribers".

BOGO-buoyed BlackBerrys come in a close second, followed by Motorola's monstrous RAZR. Now that's the sheer-face-of-the-cliff-style functionality drop-off right there, isn't it?

Developers: Is iTunes Connect Down for You?

iTunes Connect, the online portal developers use to upload and manage their App Store apps, appears to be down for the moment.

Apple had previously announced that iTunes Connect would be unavailable over the holidays between Dec. 23 and 28, but did someone jump the gun? Hit the eggnog a wee bit early? Could just be a server down -- it is the age of the cloud, after all.
