White iPhone 4 exists, but you still can't have one

The very rare iPhone 4 was noticed in New York this week. The device is not available in stores, but seems to be stacked up at Apple headquarters.

The owner of the device, who didn't want to be identified, said he got the white iPhone and from a friend, who works at Apple. He explained why the public can’t have this one.

Yesterday MacRumors received the photos of an email, that was presumably sent to Walmart managers and where it is said that every company’s store will initially receive five units of all existing iPad models and ten units of Apple's official iPad accessories. They will appear in 1,000 stores in the end of the October, other stores will be selling them in the beginning of November. Along with bringing the devices and accessories to the shelves the displays in the stores will be translating videos about iPad's features.

Walmart plans to start selling the iPads in 2010 were revealed in May. Previously the company overhauled its electronic departments in retail stores to include the Apple section in addition.

Also, Walmart will be the latest company that will start selling the iPad in this year. Target has been selling the devices since Oct. 3 and Best Buy stores stared offering the iPad since it was launched in April.

HDR photos in iOS 4.1 could be a result of Apple acquisition



imsense

The addition of high dynamic range photos to the iPhone 4 via the iOS 4.1 software update may have come from the purchase of Imsense Ltd., a company that creates software to improve the quality of digital photos.

The company developed technology it dubbed "eye-fidelity," which allows for dynamic range correction in both standard and HDR photos. This is accomplished by recovering details lost in underexposed and overexposed pictures. The resulting effect, in some cases, results in superior pictures when taken in daylight or a bright setting.
