Yet More CDMA-Compatible (aka Verizon) iPhone Rumors

Yet More CDMA-Compatible (aka Verizon) iPhone Rumors

Once again Taiwan's DigiTimes is raising chatter about Qualcomm and Apple and CDMA compatible (or CDMA+GSM dual mode) iPhones, which of course brings Verizon screaming back into the rumor-mill.

This time, however, it seems that Qualcomm just really, really wants to work with Apple (who currently use a GSM-only chipset from rival Infineon), and a hybrid CDMA+GSM iPhone might not even be technically possible until 2011. (Though Qualcomm's new chipset reportedly does provide compatibility with the upcoming LTE 4G standard as well, which both AT&T and Verizon will be rolling out... eventually).

So, yeah, very little to see here until we see something real here...

Tweetie 2.1 Twitter Client for iPhone Brings Geotag, Lists, New-Style Re-Tweets

Tweetie 2.1 Twitter Client for iPhone Brings Geotag, Lists, New-Style Re-Tweets

Tweetie 2.1 [$2.99 - iTunes link] -- a FREE upgrade for Tweetie 2.0 users -- brings support for Twitter's new Geotag feature (so everyone will know where exactly you're tweeting from), Twitter lists (what lists you have, what lists you subscribe to, though not the likely less-wieldly lists you're on), and the controversial new-style re-tweets (where you see the original tweeter in your timeline, not the person you're following who re-tweeted it).

There are other additions as well: report spam (via API), tweet-stream "gap" detection (looks like a torn gap in your timeline), and a tone of other stuff (including disable pin-stripes for the pixel-haters).

So how does Tweetie 2.1 handle all this new stuff? With Atebit's trademark buttery-smooth UI. Geotag is a new icon under the tweet-count drop-down menu. Twitter lists can be accessed via the More (...) icon on the bottom navigation bar, and you can view, manage, and even add new lists right on-device. New-style re-tweets get a small pink corner icon on the top right, and tapping on it brings up the original tweet with text on the bottom telling you which person you follow re-tweeted it.

If you decide to give it a try, let us know how you like it. (Or help me try it out via @reneritchie)

Screenshots galore after the break!

4th Generation iPhone (3,1) Now Being Tested in San Francisco

Yup, pretty much right on schedule identifiers for iPhone 3,1 (which would be the 4th generation iPhone -- likely set to debut next summer at WWDC 2010 -- have shown up in PinchMedia analytics, which tracks device usage, this time for iBART developer Pandav. (Apple is based outside San Francisco, so a SF public transport app makes sense as a test app).

Handbrake Video Encoder Hits 0.9.4

Handbrake Video Encoder Hits 0.9.4

A year to the day after the previous version was released, Handbrake has hit 0.9.4, and boy is it faaaaaaaaast:

There's an old proverb in the video encoding world: "Speed, size, quality: pick two." It means that you always have to make a trade-off between the time it takes to encode a video, the amount of compression used, and the picture quality. Well, this release of HandBrake refuses to compromise. It picks all three.

If you have video you want to get onto your iPhone, Handbrake is the way to go -- and it's free. New, streamlined presets still include Apple Universal, iPod, iPhone & iPod touch, and Apple TV (as well as others if you're rocking the Xbox, PS3, Zune, or whatever floats your video boat).

N.O.V.A Trailer Emerges- What Will Microsoft's Lawyers Think?

N.O.V.A Trailer Emerges- What Will Microsoft's Lawyers Think?

We saw a preview of Gameloft's N.O.V.A back at WWDC 2009 for iPhone/iPod Touch. Even then it looked suspiciously like Halo. But now, there can be no doubt in saying that Halo "unofficially" makes its way to iPhone. This teaser trailer shows a lot of video reminiscent of Microsoft's Halo franchise. The last 50-seconds of the trailer shows actual gameplay, let's just say that the players involved look a lot like Master Chief a military soldier and The Covenant some aliens in an intergalactic battle.
