3.1 Million iPhone's Activated -- AT&T Q4 2009 Results

Hot on the heels of Apple's explosive Q1 2010 results come AT&T's Q4 2009 financials, and once again the iPhone helped its exclusive US carrier paint a rosy picture that includes 3.1 million new activations.

AT&T's fourth-quarter integrated-device growth included 3.1 million iPhone activations, the second highest quarterly total to date, with more than a third of the activations for customers who were new to AT&T. The average ARPU for integrated devices on AT&T's network continues to be 1.8 times that of the company's nonintegrated-device base.

ARPU (average revenue per user), as Dieter keeps telling us, is the magic number for AT&T, and despite complaints about service in cities like New York and San Francisco, iPhone users continue to use -- and pay for -- a lot of data.

Google Makes it onto iPad, Everything "Stable" for iPhone too?

Google Makes it onto iPad, Everything "Stable" for iPhone too?

When Steve Jobs introduced the iPad, he showed off the Apple designed but Google fed Maps application, and the Google-ownd YouTube app. He even named Google during the Maps demo. Much has been made about a falling out between Google and Apple, how Steve Jobs dislikes Eric Schmidt, and how the iPhone would turn to Microsoft's Bing for default search and maps going forward.

iPad 4:3 Screen - Bad for Movies, Good for Books and Web?

iPad 4:3 Screen - Bad for Movies, Good for Books and Web?

When Steve Jobs whipped out the iPad, the first thing I did was do a double-take on the screen's 4:3 aspect ratio. At 1024x763 it's what I used to have on my 2005 Windows XP CRT screen. It's wide. It's iPod "phatty" nano G3 [Wikipedia link] wide and that design only lasted 1 generation before Apple back-peddled to the long and slim. Apple used to default to 16:10, and the new iMac is 16:9, which is modern HDTV aspect ratio. (The iPhone and iPod touch are 3x2)

What iPhone 3.2 for iPad has, and TiPb wants for iPhone Actual ASAP!

The brand new Apple iPad is running iPhone 3.2 and has several features we've wanted on, you know, the actual iPhone device for a while now. Never mind that the iPhone 3.2 SDK is iPad-only, just like the features. And never mind that the iPad might still be waiting for iPhone 4.0 to get it's full functionality in place. TiPb wants an iPhone (and iPod touch) version of iPhone 3.2 while we're waiting, and we wants us some of those features!

Our list after the break!

Apple: We're #1 Mobile Devices Company in World, Bigger than Sony, Samsung, Nokia

Did the iPad Look Unfinished Because Apple is Hiding iPhone 4.0 Features?

Did the iPad Look Unfinished Because Apple is Hiding iPhone 4.0 Features?

TiPb mentioned this a couple times in passing -- that the iPad perhaps didn't show things like multitasking and better notifications because it's running iPhone 3.2 and those will be iPhone 4.0 features, likely only to debut in March -- but now Boy Genius seems to think (hope?) this is a real possibility as well.
