According to various sources Apple is sitting on a stockpile of just 3 million units ready for shipment.

What Would It Take To Make You To Switch To The iPhone?

What Would It Take To Make You To Switch To The iPhone?

Robb Dunewood over at RIMarkable poses the question..

Before I became a die-hard BlackBerry user I was a die-hard Windows Mobile (Pocket PC at the time) user. I couldn’t imagine that I would ever be interested in a device like the BlackBerry, yet, RIMarkable is about to enter into its third year of existence. Truth be told, I will more than likely get an iPhone shortly after it comes out but it will be in addition to my BlackBerry. If I remember correctly, however, my first BlackBerry was in addition to my Windows Mobile device.

iPhone's First Pretender Contender Arrives

iPhone's First Pretender Contender Arrives

And so it begins. Apple's first rival rears is ugly head. Well, not ugly. Just not as well designed or well implemented. This is HTC's answer to iPhone and its gesture-based navigation. Dubbed the "Touch" (cute), this device offers an ingenious rotating UI layered on top of Windows Mobile.

What bothers me about this device isn't so much that it's a blatant ripoff of iPhone, and even marketing panache ala Apple. No, I don't like the fact it takes something good; namely HTC's custom UI, and layers it over something that wasn't designed to operate like the iPhone - Windows Mobile. Like lipstick on a pig, this device fails to even remotely mimic the iPhone user experience.

That said, I give HTC a B+ for its effort.

AT&T Bracing for iPhone Shortage, Builds Bomb Shelter

AT&T Bracing for iPhone Shortage, Builds Bomb Shelter

C|Net UK chats up the coming apocalypse sparked by iPhone shortages.

Sales representatives also said they are expecting big crowds for the launch, many of whom are likely to camp out overnight in front of stores to make sure they are one of the first to get the new phone. "If I were you, I'd probably try going to some little store in New Jersey that nobody knows about," the Times Square representative said. Even Steve Jobs, Apple's chief executive, suggested to technology pundit Arianna Huffington that she go to an AT&T store where lines might be shorter than at Apple's stores.

I'm scared. Someone hold my hand.

iPhone Halo Effect Benefits All Carriers? Yeah, Right!

iPhone Halo Effect Benefits All Carriers? Yeah, Right!

Some analysts are speculating that iPhone may have an unexpected benefit to other carrier as well. The logic being that everyone wants one, but not everyone can afford one or switch carriers. Ergo they will seek cheaper or available alternatives like the recently announced HTC Touch.

AT&T Developing iTunes Integration and Widget for OSX Users?

AT&T Developing iTunes Integration and Widget for OSX Users?

Apple and AT&T have worked closely together on iPhone throughout its development and looming rollout. That much is certain. But the two companies may be working on some rather interesting service integration with iTunes and a special dashboard widget for OSX users. According to a source I spoke with from AT&T, the two companies are working to enable iPhone users to view and administer their AT&T account from within iTunes itself.

In this arragement iTunes would allow you to view your bill, minutes used, add-on features like ringtone downloads, etc., all right within iTunes. The company may also offer a simple dashboard widget which displays minutes used as monthly bill status. Interesting.

iPhone to Support Flash?

iPhone to Support Flash?

What's this? iPhone supports Flash plugin? Just think of the possibilities! This means we'll be able to watch xTube YouTube video right our iPhone. Or not. Keep a close eye on this story because it is completely unconfirmed by anything other than a product shot used in a TV ad.

Still, since iPhone is running OSX under the hood it's totally conceivable that Flash is supported. We'll see.

David Pogue Posts Updated iPhone FAQS

New York Times columnist David Pogue has published an ammended blog entry containing a second round of FAQs everyone seems to interested in finding answers to. This is definitely worth the click, as it paints a clearer picture of this "micro" OSX platform. I found one comment from Steve Jobs to be rather dishy...

Markoff: “And what are you thinking about Flash and Java?”

Jobs: “Java’s not worth building in. Nobody uses Java anymore. It’s this big heavyweight ball and chain.”

Markoff: “Flash?”

Jobs: “Well, you might see that.”

Markoff: “What about YouTube–”

iPhone Shackles Users to Apple's Walled Garden

iPhone Shackles Users to Apple's Walled Garden

<

p>As "iPhone euphoria" slowly wears off, replaced with sobering reality, some of iPhone's less shiny aspects are beginning to come into view. Wilmington North Corolina's StarNews (I didn't know they had newspapers in NC. Wonder if they have internets as well ;) ) pointed out the unfairness of Apple's FairPlay digital rights management (DRM) technology which locks users into Apple's walled garden by limiting playback of songs purchased through the iTunes Store only on Apple authorized hardware. Since Apple doesn't license FairPlay to any other vendor, that means you can only listen to these legally purchased tracks on an iPod, or iPhone in this case.

iPhone Will/Will Not have 3G Support

iPhone Will/Will Not have 3G Support

If there is one thing I cannot tolerate it's a technology company playing with my emotions by promising one thing and delivering another. During the keynote, Steve Jobs clearly indicated the iPhone will not have 3G support built-in, meaning it will not poses UMTS or HSDPA technology. And yet John Markoff of the New York Times is claiming that Apple will provide a firmware upgrade that will unlock this hidden functionality.

Hint to Mr. Markoff 3G is a hardware feature, not software. Meaning that it's going to take a hell of a lot more than a firmware upgrade to add 3G capability to iPhone if the underlying hardware that enables it is missing. Smacks John on forehead
