Rumor

3G iPhone around the Corner, OLED, 10 Million of 'em Ordered?

Ken Dulaney, a Gartner analyst has divulged to the iPod Observer that Apple may have already placed an order for 10 million 3G iPhones. Mr. Dulaney is aware of this based on the rumors he his following in Asia.

Mr. Delany also goes on to speculate that the 3G iPhone will also use organic LED's allowing the device to be thinner and have a lower consumption. This comes just days off of Kevin Rose's declaration that the 3G iPhone will have a built-in forward facing camera, possibly for video chatting via an iChat like client.

Rumor: Apple Considering All-You-Can-Eat Music Subscriptions?

People don't want to rent their music. So said Apple CEO Steve Jobs. Of course, the Jobsinator also said people don't want to watch video on tiny iPod screens, and we see how far that got him...

So, while 100% unsubstantiated rumor at the moment, The Financial Times (via Apple Insider) is reporting a "tip off" that says Apple is now considering an unlimited music program similar to Nokia's "Comes With Music".

Another Keynote, Another Fake Leaked Outline


Above: a big yawner, courtesy of twob

It happens every year lately - a day or two before the big Keynote, some tiny site1 claims to have the outline of what Steve Jobs will announce. The supposed goods on the iPhone: 16gb at $499 (really going on a limb there), arrival in Japan in March, and the unveiling of the SDK. A full unveiling, actually, with lots of details.

All of which are pretty safe bets.

After the jump: the full supposed outline. Give it credit for being realistic -- heck, give it credit for being boring. But do not, we hope, give it credit for beingreal.

1 Yes, we are a tiny site as well and we know you thought it earlier. Be Nice.

Apple Making a Tablet PC?

An employee of Asus -- the company that builds many of Apple's laptops -- told CNET that they are making a tablet PC from Apple. It's apparently a brand new tablet design, not one that Asus has used before. The device could be introduced as early as January, at Mac World Expo 2008. Crave at CNET surmises that the tablet will take many OS cues from the iPhone, incorporating finger flicking, cover flow, and other gesture-based movements.

Deep Red iPhone Coming?

Engadget reports that a deep red version of the iPhone is in the works. The report lists a 4GB version available in deep red, but I'll believe a deep red 4GB iPhone when I see it. The best reason that Apple would make a red iPhone is to be part of the PRODUCT (RED) charity for AIDS in Africa, which Apple has done with iPods for quite a while now.
