The White iPhone 4 has been spotted in the hands of Stephen Fry at the T3 Gadget Awards 2010. According to T3, Fry was talking about the Windows Phone 7 launch that he had attended earlier that day. When he reached for the new Windows Phone 7 that Microsoft had given him, however, Fry inadvertently pulled out his White iPhone 4.

Fry proceeded to taunt the audience and claimed that it was “The only white iPhone 4 currently in Europe”.

With the white iPhone 4 still unavailable to order from Apple, people are speculating how Stephen got his hands on the device. Was it an aftermarket job or is he in possession of one of the ‘ready-to-go’ white iPhone units? If the latter, could we see the white iPhone 4 before the holiday season?

Gaming Controllers for iPhone, Would You Want One?

Gaming Controllers for iPhone, Would You Want One?

After over three years of the iPhone being on the market, there's still not a great "have to have it" gaming controller accessory. The iPhone, iPod touch, and now the iPad have become serious competitors in the gaming arena and while touch gesture games are awesome in their own right, there's several games that would benefit from having an actual controller.

It's not Retina Display (yet?), and we had some trouble with the video (though that could just be launch day hiccups) but if you're a Bar Refaeli fan and want to take her everywhere you go, yes... there's an app for that.

Apple applies for iPhone anti-sexting patent

Apple applies for iPhone anti-sexting patent

Apple has applied for yet another patent; this one is for filtering text messages. Why would one want to filter text messages, you ask? To prevent sexting of course!

Sexting -- SMS text messages containing sexual content -- restrictions could allows the user (or parent of the user) to block the exchange of text-based messages containing any type of content, or to have the offending content removed before the transmission is complete.

Tired of waiting for a white iPhone 4? Add some color with Incipio Feather Case [Sponsored]

Tired of waiting for a white iPhone 4? Add some color with Incipio Feather Case [Sponsored]

Since Apple still hasn't shipped a white iPhone 4 -- much less a pink one -- I decided try out a few, fun Incipio Ultra Light Feather Cases instead. Because really, why should I have to wait for style? They come in black, turquoise, metallic black, metallic white, pink, metallic orange, forest green, yellow green, metallic gray, coral, metallic purple, and bright purple (phew!), and are thin and unobtrusive enough you'll barely notice the difference in your pocket or purse. They also come with a screen protector, so if you're worried about scratches, they've got you covered.

Apple holding "Back to the Mac" event October 20

Apple holding "Back to the Mac" event October 20

Looks like Apple will be holding an event in October again, this time called "Back to the Mac" and no doubt focusing on -- OS X 10.7 Lion?! -- new MacBooks, a new MacBook Air, and maybe iLife '11 and iWork '11?

Since iOS is such an integral part of Apple these days, it's hard to believe they'll skip iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad entirely, so we'll be keeping our eyes peeled for anything from new slideshow exports (yawn!) to a whole new app for making HTML 5 goodness for our mobile devices, or Back to my Mac for iOS?

I still want an iOS layer to replace Dashboard and FrontRow. How about that?

What do you expect?

T-Mobile Germany losing iPhone exclusivity?

T-Mobile Germany losing iPhone exclusivity?

T-Mobile has been the exclusive carrier of the iPhone in Germany since the first iPhone in 2007, however there is new evidence to show that T-Mobile may lose its exclusivity to O2 and Vodafone in the coming weeks.

  • The O2 Germany website, has launched a ‘keep me informed’ page, that offers “the latest news and everything to know about the iPhone 4 on O2”

  • The Vodafone website has launched a similar page that allows you to sign up and select which iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS you want to be notified about.

Both carriers are yet to announce any official pricing or release date, however one source at iPhone-Ticker.de has said that Vodafone will have iPhone 4’s starting Wednesday 27th October, with prices starting at €729 and as high as €849, off contract.

Rumoured contract prices start at €169,90 for the handset and €45 a month for the low-tier contract, to as high as €119,95 a month, with the handset at €1 for the higher-tier contract.

This marks the end of T-Mobile’s exclusivity in Germany, and sees them join the likes of the UK and Canada in the list of multiple-carrier countries. Unless and until Verizon iPhone (or Sprint or T-Mobile) rumors prove true, the US remains exclusive to AT&T.

So, any T-Mobile Germany iPhone users tempted to switch?
