We'll be beginning TiPb's live coverage just before 2pm PT/5pm ET, but Apple has already released their results, and they include 7.4 million iPhones sold in Q4 2009.
Apple Inc. is set to announce their Q4 2009 financial results today, and host their usual après-PR conference call at 5pm ET/2pm PT. Analysts are anticipating good news overall, though rumor once again has it demand for the iPhone 3GS is still outstripping supply.
So what else is there? Browser link sync? The iPhone will sync Safari links, or Internet explorer on Windows, but syncing links for Firefox users is thus far unsupported, and no doubt many would love to have that functionality:
Just a few days ago Verizon started their iDoesn't campaign specifically targeting Apple's iPhone. Well late last night images started to emerge all over the blogs, including our very own Android Central, giving us a sneak peek to what may be some legitimate iPhone competition. After a hands on, BGR came away mighty impressed. Here are just a few of the highlights spotlighted by BGR:
Early this morning developer of the iPhone Facebook application, Joe Hewitt, posted that Facebook 3.03 is on it's way to squash a few bugs. Even bigger news is that update will then be followed by Facebook 3.1 which will include push notifications.
Rockband [$9.99 - iTunes link] for iPhone and iPod touch is now available in the iTunes App Store. It has guitar, bass, drums, and vocals, and both single-player and multi-player (via Bluetooth) action.
20 songs come with the app, including music by Smashing Pumpkins, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Foo Fighters, Blink-182, The Beastie Boys, and more can be purchased in-app.
If you get your Rockband on, let us know how it works for you!
Wolfram Alpha [$49.00 - iTunes link] for iPhone (and iPod touch) is the "computational knowledge engine" made mobile. While the website is (currently?) free, the iPhone app is decidedly not. But is it worth the premium price? Christian Warren from Mashable says:
Dark Horse Comics, purveyors of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8, Angel, Hellboy, among other licensed and creator-owned fare have teamed up with Gelaskins to produce a series of comic and pop-art inspired protective coatings for your iPhone, iPod touch, and laptop.
They were kind enough to send TiPb a sample of the Buffy and Hellboy iPhone 3GS skins, and the art was bold and beautiful, and the product every bit as good as I've come to expect from Gelaskins (I've been using them for a long time, as some may have noticed, seeing my iPhone 3G with Dragon backing in many of our videos last year).
Every week a few of us from team TiPb, bloggers and forum crew alike, will bring you our current favorite, funnest, most useful App Store apps, WebApps, jailbreak apps, even the occasional accessory, web site, or desktop app if the mood strikes us. As long as they're iPhone (or iPod touch) related, they're fair game.
So who's on deck this week and what are our picks? Find out after the break!
