iOS 4 “cloned” to HTC device





It looks like iOS 4.0 has successfully been cloned to another device, an HTC one in this case, and everything from iOS seems to be there. As iSpazio points out, the porting of iOS to another company’s device seems like a long-shot, so this is most likely the best, most realistic iOS clone ever. As you’ll see in the video, everything works including folders, quick-app switching, spotlight, and all the keyboards.

Average iTunes operation costs nearly $75 million dollars per month. This is more than double 2009′s average monthly costs. The rise is credited to the new features Apple has recently implemented into iTunes as well as the 18 million apps downloaded each day. That’s roughly 200 apps per second.

iPhone 4 Approved for Sale in China!



Screen-shot-2010-09-08-at-13.37.25-670x361

It seems that the new iPhone 4 from Apple plans to conquer a well-supplied market of China, as this device has got an important approval from government agencies.

Apple has recently won the network license of China for its iPhone 4 from the Certification Center of Telecommunication Equipment. It fully corresponds to the statements of China Unicom, a carrier of Apple products in China, which said that it is planning to sell iPhones a bit later this year.

It is a rather interesting idea of Apple, as it is going to open a lot of retail stores all over the territory of China to attract more customers.

CNet Video: First Look at iPod Touch 4



CNet shows the new iPod Touch 4th generation and compares it with other iPod Touches and iPhones.

The good: The fourth generation of Apple's iPod Touch offers nothing but improvements, including an HD camcorder, front-facing camera, integrated microphone, FaceTime video calling, Retina Display, gyroscope sensor, and a slimmer, lighter design.

The bad: Photo quality doesn't hold up to the iPhone 4's; there's no GPS, and no option for 3G data service.

The bottom line: The iPod Touch is the best iPod yet, offering all the fun of the iPhone experience without a carrier contract or monthly bill.

ipodtouchvibrate

A new iPod touch has got a new undocumented ability, which we should talk about. Now it will be able to vibrate, just like the iPhone! It seems that the developers in the first place took care of deaf users, as the main purpose of the device is vibration when they receive calls from FaceTime.

Complete Card Solution for iPhone



2

Who knew that credit card processing would be the new hotness for smartphones? The Square mobile payment system has been making waves by letting small businesses receive credit card payment directly on their smartphones. Now, mophie and Intuit are looking to get in on the same action with their Complete Card Solution for iPhone. It's a $179 package that includes both mophie's card-swiping phone case and the 3.0 version of Intuit's GoPayment app. After a quick application users are said to be approved (or, erm, declined) within 15 minutes and can immediately start accepting payments.

A single account can also cover up to 50 users, meaning an entire sales team could be equipped with these devices. But this case, which encrypts every credit card number before it gets to the phone, will only work with the iPhone 3G/S.

China Unicom Advertises Jailbreaking and Provides Free Cases with Purchase



iphonejailbreakAccording to the first-hand information in China, China Unicom is currently advertising services for jailbreaking when you buy the iPhone 4. Quite intriguing, right? Thanks to online services such as Jailbreakme.com, jailbreaking has become much easier and it seems that the Chinese carrier of cell phones can realize this service, turning it into a great marketing scheme.

According M.I.C. Gadget, the advertisement is as follows: "Support Service: Free SIM-trimming, jailbreaking, installing more than ten hot applications."

However, with jailbreaking, China Unicom also offers free cases for your iPhone 4 with purchase, so buyers will not have to use the Apple's case program.

Check out a Dual SIM iPhone 4 case!



iphone-4-dual-simToday you can find a lot of phones with dual slot for SIM cards, most of them are designed for Asian markets, but the iPhone is far from the two SIM cards: in fact, it does not even sport a Big Person SIM to call its own. Fortunately, USBFever has the perfect solution to this problem. USBFever offers a new case at $ 30, where you can put two SIM cards on the back side of the iPhone 4 (built in a rather stylish, transparent plastic), while the adapter is connected to the micro SIM slot of your iPhone 4. Now you can switch between two SIM cards with your own iPhone’s setup menu, though, unfortunately, you can not use both SIM cards at once.

Apple’s iPad Perfect for Sumo Wrestlers



sumo-wrestlers-400x297

The Japan Sumo Association has carried out their decision to hand out 60 iPads to 51 wrestling club in the country. The idea was to improve communication between the wrestlers themselves and the sports body. The Association decided that the wrestlers’ fingers weren’t small enough for ordinary mobile phones and that iPads might help them not to miss the information sent by fax or phone – something that had often happened before.

However, first of all the Association’s princely gesture was aimed at making amends after some scandals that involved gangsters, match-fixing and illegal gambling. Sumo came under harsh criticism for the lack of investigation and control, which was partly due to poor communication.

Activate FaceTime on Unlocked iPhone 4 with MiTime



IMG_0042

The recently released application MiTime for the iPhone 4 fixes and activates FaceTime on unlocked iPhone 4s that run on T-Mobile USA or other unofficial unsupported carriers. According to the MiTime’s description, it should work with almost any carrier in the world. You should be able to receive international SMS messages to activate FaceTime via MiTime.

The application MiTime sends two international SMS messages for activation, so it can not be free. Thus, until there is no other way to activate FaceTime on unlocked iPhone 4s, this is the only way with an affordable price.

More information and tutorial is here.
