iWatch! New straps for iPod nano by Incipio



nano6g_linq_mainbanner

Hooray! Incipio has released a real case and watch strap (Ling) for iPod nano iWatch! Now we can certainly say that this new offer will be sold with a great speed.

PR managers of Incipio admit that these straps are the best. Well, we need only to know their price ... but so far we've noticed only the following message: "Incipio offers new and unique design of straps for iPod nano iWatch. They are made of advanced polymer materials and are quite comfortable in use ...".

Thus, we can only hope that their price won't be pretty high for those users who are ready to buy one of them.

CNet Video: First Look at iPod Nano 6G



CNet shows the new iPod Nano 6th generation:

The good: The iPod Nano (sixth generation) is nearly half the size of the previous model, uses unique multitouch screen navigation, and includes a built-in clip.

The bad: Many features have disappeared, including video playback, camcorder, microphone, speaker, games, calendar, contacts, notes, and alarm clock. The touch-screen interface is overkill, requiring more attention than the time-tested click wheel design without delivering many practical benefits.

The bottom line: The sixth generation of the iPod Nano is the smallest yet, but it comes at the expense of valuable features and practical controls.

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.

iPhone 4 Antenna Problem Solved?



500x_500x_mind-the-gap-image

Telcel, a Mexican mobile operator, claims that the iPhones 4 coming out in late September won’t have the infamous antenna problem anymore.

Until September 30, Telcel customers (as well as US users) can still get free iPhone 4 cases. Meanwhile, Apple have been working hard on solving the problem, trying to find a hardware solution that won’t hide the antenna but will either react differently with skin or coat the antenna.

Although still only a rumor, it’s an interesting and promising announcement.

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.

iPhone 4 to Get Mili PowerSpring 4 for longer battery life



mili-powerspring-4If we look at the iPhone 4 and Galaxy S, we’ll see a big difference between them. No, we're not talking about iOS against Android 2.1. We are talking about batteries: one of them is removable, and the other is not - guess which one? Although today you can find a lot of accessories that offer incredible opportunity to recharge your favorite devices.

If you do not want to bring bulky chargers or extra batteries, then you should pay attention to Mili PowerSpring 4.

Japanese Diners Will Soon Use Their iPads As Menus



In America, you’d go in, sit at the counter, order your food from a waitress and get it delivered to you a few minutes later. In Japan, though, it is handled with what can seem to be an absurd level of detachment from your server: orders are placed through a touchscreen or ticket machine, where you pay for your food. That ticket is placed, without a word, upon the tray of someone working behind the counter, who later — and just as silently — brings you your food.

It was really interested, then, to see this iPad self-ordering system pop up on Japan Probe. Designed by Sharp Systems Products, it allows Japanese diners to order from a menu on their iPad, completely obviating the need for the aforementioned touchscreen ordering systems or ticketing machines. It’s a more feature rich implementation too: for example, you can pinch to make a picture of your food bigger, or drill down for ingredients.
