iPhone 3G: What We Didn't Get (Wait-a-Thon)

iPhone 3G: What We Didn't Get (Wait-a-Thon)

Here at TiPb we’ve covered 10 things we thought Apple needed to fix in the next iPhone. With the anticipation of the iPhone 3G, the rumor mill went crazy with things like video conferencing, different models, etc. all but confirmed at one point in time. We even ran a bunch of our own predictions.

And well the Jobsnote was yesterday, and though we got the biggies: 3G, GPS, flush headphone jack, and a $199 price point, but we also missed out on a lot of stuff we thought we would be getting already.

Read on to see what we didn't get in the iPhone 3G!

Apple Gives First Hints of OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard

Apple Gives First Hints of OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard

Apple.com has put up a teaser page for their next-generation OS X, 10.6, code-named Snow Leopard. And the features, to put it mildly, are mind blowing:

Exchange support built in, so that iPhone and OS X share common business email, calendar, and contact sync.

64-bit monster, supporting a theoretical 16TB (terabytes!!) of RAM.

Multi-core optimized, using "Grand Central" to chip away at one of the biggest problems in programming: how to really take advantage of multi-core processors.

Win an iPhone 3G, $100 iTunes Card - Wait-a-Thon Continues!

Win an iPhone 3G, $100 iTunes Card - Wait-a-Thon Continues!

If you haven't heard, we're planning on giving away an iPhone 3G as soon as it's available. You can find the full details of the contest here, but the short version is this: if you made more than 20 posts1 in our iPhone Forums before July 22nd, we'll enter you in the random drawing. Of course, Apple decided to throw us a curveball by requiring in-store activation -- so we'll either try to buy it the old fashioned way for ya or if push comes to shove we'll get a way for you to get it on your own on our dime. Shame on your Apple.

Accessory Review: Jawbone Bluetooth Headset

Accessory Review: Jawbone Bluetooth Headset

There are bluetooth headsets a'plenty out there in the world of mobility. Anything is fair game from tiny headsets that fit in your ear to monstrous behemoths that attach to the side of your face like a Borg. I have the had the pleasure of using the Jawbone bluetooth headset for some time now. I also have used other headsets quite regularly such as Apple's bluetooth headset and a Motorola H700C. The iPhone Blog has also reviewed the Sony Ericsson HBH-PV705 and the Plantronics Discovery 665 recently. These headsets come in all shapes and sizes and they all claim to do something "special". There has been a lot of press about this device. Does it live up to the hype? Or is it simply just another over-sized headset that blends in with a crowded marketplace. Let's take a look...

iPhone 2.0 SDK Beta 7 + Quicktime 7.5. iTunes 7.7 to Follow!

iPhone 2.0 SDK Beta 7 + Quicktime 7.5. iTunes 7.7 to Follow!

A New Version of the iPhone SDK is Now Available. Seventh beta version just posted.

So quoth developer.apple.com/iphone, continuing their breakneck, nigh-unprecedented release pace for the iPhone Software Developer Kit (SDK) and iPhone 2.0 beta firmware.

As always, enterprising developers will likely comb through every string and bit in the new release, looking for new features, and hoping strike gold as they have in the past. I'm still holding my breath for video recording and... cut and paste, but admittedly any new discovery will be welcome.

TomTom to make Navigation Software for the iPhone 3G

TomTom to make Navigation Software for the iPhone 3G

Ready for developers to take advantage of the new features in the iPhone 3G, namely GPS? Well don't worry, TomTom, makers of popular GPS units and GPS software, has already developed navigation software for the iPhone 3G. A TomTom spokesperson was quoted as saying,

"Navigation System runs on the iPhone already"

There is no official release date or press release but be prepared for an onslaught of GPS software to take advantage of the GPS in the iPhone 3G and not just from TomTom. Who knows which will be best? Will it be TomTom, Garmin, or a totally unknown company? This should be fun.

Hands on with the iPhone 3G!

Both Engadget and Gizmodo, those lucky [redacteds], got some hands on time with the new iPhone 3G. Ushered into a secret, dimly lit back room and likely surrounded by storm troopers, they came back with the following:

iPhone 3G. Now Selling for Just $199

iPhone 3G. Now Selling for Just $199

Read that title again, and realize that the iPhone 3G will sell for LESS than the infamous price drop given the original iPhone before the holidays. (Recap: it's started at $599 and was dropped to $399 with early adapters getting an equally infamous $100 Apple Store gift certificate Jobs-a-culpa).

And while the price drop was big news then, the retail price of $199 should be HUGE news today.

At $199, that's HALF the price of the original iPhone at its lowest. It's the SAME price as an 8GB iPod Nano. It's LESS than an iPod Classic, and MUCH LESS than an iPod Touch!

iPhone 3G Ad Shown at WWDC 08

iPhone 3G Ad Shown at WWDC 08

Remember the iPhone 3G ad that they were reportedly filming at the Fifth Avenue Apple Store? Well it came to fruition at WWDC and it's pretty slick. Not quite as epic as the 1984 commercial or as flashy as those iPod dancing ones, but the iPhone 3G "hallway" ad has its own appeal.

It starts with two security guards handling a silver lockbox and walking through an uber-modern, top-secret hallway. As the security guards walk, a voiceover says, "It's finally here. The first phone to beat the iPhone." As they set the safe down and it opens, the voiceover goes on to say "...introducing the NEW iPhone...3G"

How do you guys like it? Click the Read Link to watch the new ad.

iPhone Risk Domination: Apple to Launch iPhone 3G in 70+ Countries!

iPhone Risk Domination: Apple to Launch iPhone 3G in 70+ Countries!

What is best in life?

An iPhone 3G in your pocket, the wind in your hair, and 70+ markets to roam in?

WRONG!

To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their handset users.

Thus Apple dropped the Steve Jobs Keynote BOOM! On the first round of iPhone Risk with news of over 70 regions signed on to carry the all new, all spectacular iPhone 3G. North America and much of Europe are currently set to get the next generation universe dent'er on July 11, with the rest "Coming Soon"/

Blanketing almost all the known continents (sorry Antarctica, see you come 4G!) and countries (with the huge gaping exception of China?), iPhone Risk, post WWDC edition, is now soundly under the "Epic Win" column, even as the scorecard strains under the map-bending load, which we include after the break.

WWDC 08: iPhone Games Roundup

You'll probably hear from a lot of people who attended WWDC that the app demo section of the keynote was much too long and even :gasp: boring. But the games showcased at WWDC continue to prove that the iPhone is going to be a force in mobile gaming.

Apple Launches MobileMe: ActiveSync + Web 2.0 Apps For the Rest of Us!

Apple Launches MobileMe: ActiveSync + Web 2.0 Apps For the Rest of Us!

During the 2008 WWDC Keynote today, Apple VP of Marketing, Phil Schiller, confirmed the rumors of a .Mac maga-revamp in the form of MobileMe.

Apple's answer both to previous critiques of the admittedly out-dated .Mac service, and the expected cloud computing boom (see Android, Google), MobileMe features ActiveSync-like "push" email, calendar, and contacts syncing between your iPhone (or iPod Touch) and your Mac or PC, or via any web browser with some pretty spectacular looking Web 2.0/AJAX style online apps. It also adds photo syncing, clearly targeting consumers.
