The iPhone 4G prototype found recently is real (photos)





iphone4_01

The story about iPhone 4G get's even more complicated. Recently the future iPhone 4G photos were shown just everywhere. After several hours these photos were claimed fake, because the device looked just like a Japanese iPhone clone. Today Gizmodo posted an article with many photos and videos, proving this is actually the next iPhone prototype. This might even be the real final version of iPhone 4G. And of course this might still be fake, a good one though. We don't know yet.

So what's new in the next iPhone 4G:

  • Front-facing video chat camera.
  • Improved regular back-camera (the lens is quite noticeably larger than the iPhone 3GS).
  • Camera flash.
  • Micro-SIM instead of standard SIM (like the iPad).
  • Improved display. It's unclear if it's the 960x640 display thrown around before—it certainly looks like it, with the "Connect to iTunes" screen displaying much higher resolution than on a 3GS.
  • What looks to be a secondary mic for noise cancellation, at the top, next to the headphone jack.
  • Split buttons for volume.
  • Power, mute, and volume buttons are all metallic.
  • iPhone OS 4.0.
  • Dimensions: 4.50 х 2.31 х 0.37 inches.
  • Weight: 140 g.
  • Battery: 5.25 WHr 3.7V (iPhone 3GS - 4.51 WHr 3.7V).

Here are the photos of next iPhone:

iPhone 4G (iPhoneHD) pictures leaked



The story is quite strange. Someone found a future iPhone 4G (or iPhone HD) in a bar in San Jose. It was inside of an iPhone 3G case. The device has a front facing camera and 80GB of storage. It's not clear if this is definitely a production model, or just a prototype.

Fortunately the founder contacted engadget, so we have the photos:

FCC Revealed iPad Internal Hardware Photos



ipadfcc1

Yesterday U.S. Federal Communications Commision revealed internal hardware photos of iPad, though they had originally obtained it as early as on March 12. It is a series of 17 pictures that gives a view of the display, the battery, the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi chips and more. Like in other Apple portable devices there is no empty place to waste.

The display seems to be made by LG Philips. The device has A4 processor, Broadcom BCM5973 chip and NAND flash memory from Toshiba. The solutions provider wrote:

"It looks like there is a LOT of glue holding these chips down to the board. More than we've seen before -- Apple is really serious about durability on this thing."

The device ID in FCC is "BCG-E2381A". The related documents and photos can be found here. Some of the pictures are added below.

Now it is listed in the Apple Store with late April as the shipping date. The price is $29. The kit supports all of the standard photo formats including JPEG and RAW.

It is still unclear if these adapters could be used as storage for videos and music.  For instance, you can buy this kit and several SD cards to and possibly increase iPad's storage.

Opera Mini submitted to the App Store



Opera Mini has been submitted to the AppStore. The browsing speed is impressive, since Opera is sending traffic through its servers which compresses webpages. The iPhone picks up the compressed content and displays it at rates which Opera believes to be up to five times as fast as Mobile Safari. This technology works nice especially on low speed networks.

Check out the video below.

Will Apple let Opera Mini into the AppStore? The chances are quite low.

Update: Opera published a counter tracking how long the approval process has taken.

Take a look at Opera on iPhone photo gallery:

iPhone user made an alphabet from 500 apps



An iPhone user with a nickname Urikane have put together almost full alphabet using 500 apps. That obviously took a lot of time. Watch the video:

As you can see, there is no "W" letter, and the status bar is moving with apps, so Urikane was probably just browsing the photos, but still this work must have taken forever.

New Motion Magazine Demo Presented for iPad



Alexx Henry Photography recently produced something what they call "motion magazine cover" for Viv Magazine. It is a new type of content that will be delivered to iPad. Its creators Alexx Henry and his partner Andrew Gant said that they tried to "put motion into print" in a way never seen before.

"As photographers, we can build off the foundations that work really well in print, because in the end, we aren't making moving pictures... We're creating pictures that move."

The video behind the scenes is under the cut.

Every tenth Microsoft's employee uses iPhone



Steve Ballmer

The Wall Street Journal has information that nearly 10,000 iPhone users regularly access the Microsoft employee mail system. Such a number represents almost 10% of the company's global staff.

It is really interesting as Microsoft executives are not happy to see their employees using products of rival companies. Its CEO Steve Ballmer already had an accident last September when he caught a man from the company's personnel who tried to snap a photo of an entrance with his iPhone. At that moment he was so angry he put the phone on the ground and pretended to stomp on it. After that he walked away.

The WSJ also reports:

"...the company in early 2009 modified its corporate cellphone policy to only reimburse service fees for employees using phones that run on Windows Phone software."

It is obvious the company tries to reassure its employees to use its software and hardware, but they continue to hide and even customize their iPhones to make them look more like generic handsets.
