Orange UK iPhone Pricing Plans Just Say No to Price War

Orange UK is set to break O2's iPhone exclusivity... if not their price points with the announcement of their pay monthly, pay as you go, and for business plans.

What did we notice off the top? Depending on how much you pay on contract or up front, your iPhone hardware cost can go down to as little as free or climb to as much as £539 for an iPhone 3GS on PAYG. (Also, PAYG plans named Monkey, Dolphin, Canary, Racoon, and Camel? Where's John Cleese to expla)

Quick App Updates: BeeJive IM for iPhone Goes 3.1 with Group Chat and Meta Chat

BeeJive IM [$9.99 - iTunes link] for iPhone and iPod touch has just gone 3.1 and now includes group chats (on IM services that support the feature, AIM, Yahoo!, GTalk, MSN), and meta chats (allows you to merge contacts with multiple IM services into a consolidated stream -- So Bob's AIM and Bob's Gtalk just show up under Bob).

We've been testing out the beta for a while but now that 3.1 is live, we'll be able to test it much more extensively and provide updated results as soon as we have them. Meanwhile, if you get a gaggle of chatters all grouped up together, give it a while and let us know how it works for you!

Verizon Droid iDoesn't Beat iPhone on Browser, Apps, Multi-touch or User Interface

Did Verizon and Motorola forget to include a few things in their iDon't attack ads, like iDon't render web pages as slowly or badly, iDon't arbitrarily restrict the amount of apps users can install to 256MB, iDon't fail to implement multi-touch, and iDon't have a worse user experience.

Beyond iPhone: Apple TV 3.0 First Impressions and Screenshot Gallery

Beyond iPhone: Apple TV 3.0 First Impressions and Screenshot Gallery

Apple TV 3.0 (or Apple TV 3, or Apple TV Take 3) is the just-released third version of Apple's and Steve Jobs' "hobby". And, for good or for ill, its latest feature-set seems designed to keep iTunes' living room gateway as niche as ever. That's not to say it isn't good, because it is (though it does have problems we'll get into below), but it's certainly not great. Not yet. And we're beginning to wonder if Apple (now or ever) even wants it to be?

TiPb on CNN -- iPhone in China, Quest Means Business

TiPb on CNN -- iPhone in China, Quest Means Business

Your truly was invited on CNN International's Quest Means Business to talk iPhone in China. No video updates on their page yet, but here's the transcript:

QUEST: So this latest ambitious chapter in the tale of iPhone's global success, what, of course, the Chinese launch could mean for the worldwide phenomenon that is the iPhone. And actually, of course, there's an interesting question to Rene Ritchie, the editor of The iPhone Blog, a news and review site, who joins me from Montreal.

Good evening. The decision to sell without the Wi-Fi capability, which, of course, is what is demanded in China, is that a big problem, do you think, for the iPhone user?

RENE RITCHIE, EDITOR, THEIPHONEBLOG.COM: I think it's a temporary problem at launch, because China did change that rule so the next generation of Chinese iPhones will have Wi-Fi. But to compete against the imports, the ones from Hong Kong that are unlocked, or Taiwan that are unlocked, without Wi-Fi and a higher price, that's a significant challenge.

Eliminate Pro and Touch Pets Dogs for iPhone Now Available in Canada (Other Countries to Follow)

Eliminate Pro and Touch Pets Dogs for iPhone Now Available in Canada (Other Countries to Follow)

Update: per comment below, Eliminate Pro and Touch Pets Pro are only available in Canada for now whole ngmoco tests their

First-person shooter Elminate Pro [Free - iTunes link] and virtual pet sim Touch Pets Dogs [Free - iTunes link] for iPhone and iPod touch, first shown off by ngmoco at WWDC 2009, have begun making their way into iTunes App Stores around the world (we've confirmed them in Canada, other countries should be getting them soon as well).

Both games utilize the plus+ network for community gaming, with Eliminate looking to bring the classic Golden Eye/Halo style gameplay to Apple's platform, and Touch Pets Dogs, the Nintendogs virtual pooch model. (Sadly, no, there's doesn't seem to be a way to cross over within the two games yet, and hunt the mean soldiers with doggy cuteness -- or vice versa).

The price for both being zero, we're guessing Apple's new policy of "free games can charge for in-app purchases" is having an immediate an obvious effect. Demo without risk, and if you love one or both, they'll figure out levels or gear or powerups or accessories you can buy to enjoy to love them even more.

Touch Pets Dogs video after the break, and if you try them out, let us know what you think!

[Thanks Alexander for the tip!]

Review: Apple Brings iPhone-style Multi-Touch to Magic Mouse

Review: Apple Brings iPhone-style Multi-Touch to Magic Mouse

Apple's Magic Mouse, introduced via simple press release on October 20, is the latest point-and-click peripheral for the Mac, and the latest showcase for Apple's multi-touch technology, first introduced in the iPhone and later the iPod touch. While the iPhone is still the premiere multi-touch experience in consumer electronics, however, Apple's modern history of mice has been... poor to mediocre. The hockey puck that shipped with the original iMac was goofy, the one-button Mighty Mouse hard to second-click with and prone to gunked up scroll balls.

Does the Magic Mouse work an iPhone-level spell, or is it just more of the middling? TiPb takes a look after the break!
