Apple Insider has been putting two and two together, based on web content and WWDC 2009 session info and coming up with:
Apple will leverage the popularity of the iPhone to deliver business users new Mobile Access services in Snow Leopard Server to securely deliver corporate email, contact, calendar, and intranet web services to iPhone and iPod touch users far more cost effectively than Microsoft Windows Server.
We mentioned Bluetooth 3.0 before, and now it looks like the spec is getting a tad more specified. WMExperts has the story covered but suffice it to say it's stronger, better, faster, longer. (Or at least it borrows 802.11 WiFi power when it needs to be).
Springtime, when videos turn their attention towards impending gadgets that are other than the iPhone. Samsung Instinct, BlackBerry Storm, Nokia... what was it again? This time it's the Palm Pre, with interactions lifted from the iPhone and a faux-Scottish accent taken from Scrooge McDuck, and it's dreaming of taking out the iPhone with a little 1960's Adam West Batman ZAP! POW! action, chum.
Guessing it's NokiaExpert Matt Miller week and Windows Phone day here at TiPb, as we're linking up another great review about another interesting WinPho: the HTC Touch Diamond 2... that just happens to be put to the test against our very own iPhone 3G.
Currencies is a simple yet gorgeous currency converter that lets you quickly and easily find out how much that sandwich at Heathrow airport will really cost you in good old US greenbacks. (Hint: not cheap!)
Developer Luc Vandal shared his favorite feature with us, and we have to admit it's ours as well:
there are no useless buttons. Just tap on a field, select currency or enter amount and everything gets updated on the fly. No Done button, no OK button, etc. Want to make sure you have the latest rates? Just shake to refresh and amounts are updated almost instantly.
He's right; it works as good as it looks. Which brings us to the UI design, done by Cocoai's Sebastiaan de With. His growing reputation is well deserved. Small but delightful little touches like the exposed electronics when rearranging the currency fields is especially artistic and appreciated (see above).
Who would have thought conversion apps would be leading the quality charge on the App Store?
