ChinaOnTrade.com, which sells iPhone parts reportedly directly from the factory, has thrown up some images and ordering options for 3rd generation iPhone bevels and screens.
If they're to be believed, the iPhone loses its silvery-chrome outer ring for a black band (as previously rumored?) that seems to indicate Apple will be moving things around a tad -- functionally as well as cosmetically?
Bad news for OLED hopefuls, as Gizmodo says the purported screen is still LCD, though iLounge points out it's price is double that of the 3G screen ($73 vs. $35). Hmm...
[Thanks to everyone who sent this in, iFun.de for the catch, and BenM.at for the (translated) head's up!]
iPhone Live! comes to you tonight (Wednesday, May 27) at 8pm EDT/5pm PDT.
Pre-show will start about 10 min. before if you want to drop by early. We'll have the live chat going to take your questions. You can also leave us questions in the comments below, or send them to @theiphoneblog on Twitter.
The DLO HybridShell Clear with Black Grips for iPhone 3G is available from The iPhone Blog Store for $24.95. If you are looking for a clear plastic case with "grip", this case might be for you!. Let’s see how it measures up after the break!
Tweetie, the uber-popular iPhone Twitter application, has a big desktop brother called Tweetie for Mac that's just been updated to version 2.1 and one of the cool new features is support for adding video via the yfrog service (which previously handled static pictures).
There's been a lot of noise lately about Verizon and the iPhone. Sure, some could be wishful thinking. Some could be to manipulate the ongoing Apple/AT&T negotiations. But could there be anything more to it?
Okay. Fine. Our bestest buddies over at PreCentral.net are crowing over the rumor-revelation that the Palm Pre will support "push" Gmail via IMAP IDLE [Wikipedia link]. Not as robust as BlackBerry or Microsoft ActiveSync, they say, but yarly enough. And good for them.
Of course Google's own mobile OS, Android, also enjoys push Gmail. Also fine and good and all that.
It's been a while since we've heard anything regarding the rumored official Sirius XM application for the iPhone. (If you are not familiar with the situation be sure to check out TiPb's complete Sirius XM coverage!) Now a report from SeekingAlpha has pointed us to a App Store app called ReachMD. [iTunes Link]
What makes this application interesting is that it streams, with no subscription needed, Sirius XM's channel 160 - MedicalRadio - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Even with all of the negative things said about AT&T, people still love Apple's iPhone. According to a new report from ChangeWave, customers are still leaving their current cell carrier to flock to AT&T's network just to purchase an iPhone.
iScape Games let us know that they have released their first iPhone game: Super Marble Roll [iTunes link]. I know... another marble game, but I think this one deserves your attention. I have spent a little time playing Super Marble Roll and find the controls and implementation of the accelerometer to be phenomenal. There is also a special easter egg "bonus mechanic" included that'll help rack up those points!
