Dual OS knockoff iPhone 4

Dual OS knockoff iPhone 4

We've seen our fair share of iClones in the past but this product out of China has taken the knockoff to a new level. It is quite unique in the fact it's the first iClone we've come across that runs two mobile OS's - Windows Mobile 6.5 and Android 2.1. The hardware is composed of a cheap plastic casing and buttons, 512MB of RAM, 5 megapixel camera sporting auto focus, and a 3.6 inch WVGA capacitive touch screen with multi-touch.

All of this can be yours for a cool $260.

More images after the break!

The Dev Team has commented on Geohot's multiple iOS device jailbreak, limera1n, released yesterday. A bootrom-level Jailbreak for iPhone 3GS (2009/2010), iPhone 4 (2010), iPod touch 3 (2009), iPod touch 4 (2010), iPad (2010), and theoretically Apple TV (2010). which was released yesterday and it's fair to say it hit the community like a small yield nuclear blast:

Yahoo Messenger app to add 3G video chat

Earlier this week the VP of Yahoo! Mobile in America, David Katz, let slip that Yahoo! will soon be supporting video chat on their mobile apps, including iPhone. A Yahoo Spokesperson has said that he believes:

the iPhone app has already been approved by Apple and that it would be would be available “soon.”

The advantage of Yahoo video calling is that the user will not only be able make video calls with iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4. but with Android devices, Mac and Windows PCs, and anything else Yahoo supports. Yahoo's app will also not be restricted to just Wi-Fi like FaceTime, and will be able to be used via 3G/4G.

UPDATED: Limera1n released! BEFORE Greenpois0n [Jailbreak]

Geohot has struck first by releasing his limera1n jailbreak for all 3rd gen and 4th gen devices, using Comex's userland tools to make it untethered. While there was talk of consolidating Chronic Dev Team's Greenpois0n jailbreak with Geohot's Limera1n, Geohot has decided to release his first. Chronic Dev Team has responded -- angrily -- on twitter

Will they go forward with Greenpois0n as planned? Stay tuned...

Is iPhone 4 "Glassgate" real?

Is iPhone 4 "Glassgate" real?

Since Ryan Block, formerly editor-in-chief of Engadget and current co-founder of GDGT, reported Apple was in a secret lock-down over slide-on cases and particulate causing iPhone 4 glass backplates to scratch and break, there's been a lot of debate as to the merit and credibility of the charges.

The Macalope takes particular issue with it in Macworld:

iPad launching at Walmart next week

iPad launching at Walmart next week

We've known iPad is coming to Walmart for a long while now but it looks like next week it will finally arrive. Following on the heels of Target and Amazon -- and Apple Online and Apple Retail -- if Apple can meet demand that's a huge retail footprint for iPad this holiday season.

And I'm starting to run out of 7-Eleven and QuickyMart jokes about where it will show up next, so if you have any ideas drop them in the comments.

Limera1n teases all iOS device exploit, return of Geohot?

Looks like Geohot wants back with limera1n and back in on the Jailbreak scene. Just day after Chronic Dev Team and Comex announced the 10/10/10 release date of Greenpois0n, he has announced his own bootrom exploit, which he wants included in Greenpois0n, no doubt delaying it's release... What will Chronic Dev Team do? According to the @chronicdevteam twitter account:

We are currently working the "situation" out. Don't worry, you'll still get the jailbreak in the end, nothing to be concerned about.

Has Apple always had a 7-inch iPad?

Has Apple always had a 7-inch iPad?

As with Intel Macs and CDMA iPhones, I always assume Apple tried out every logical variation of a product in the labs, and has every sensible alternative prototyped and tested as a release candidate before ultimately deciding the best device with which to go to market. So it's not surprise Jim Dalrymple of the Loop confirms a 7-inch iPad has been around since the get go:

The fact is, Apple already has a 7-inch iPad. They have had one of the smaller devices since they started making the 9.7-inch iPad that we have now.

To be clearer, the two devices were developed at the same time. They have pretty much the same specs, except, of course, the 9.7-inch model has a higher density screen than its smaller counterpart.

Android founder says carriers add value, we do a spit take

Given all the Verizon iPhone rumors of late, and given our fears Verizon would try to mutilate iOS the way it's mutilated Android, it's rather shocking to hear Android founder Andy Rubin say the following to PCMag's Sacha Segan:

NYT: Apple making iPhone for Verizon

If the Wall Street Journal wasn't enough to convince you Apple was making an iPhone for Verizon, then ladies and gentlemen we give you the paper of record:

After more than three years of using only AT&T cellphone networks, Apple is making a version of the iPhone 4 for Verizon’s network, according to a person who is in direct contact with Apple. Apple and Verizon will begin selling the phone early next year, the person said, who agreed to speak on condition of anonymity because the plans were supposed to be confidential and he did not want to alienate his contacts at Apple.
