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.

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 App Found in iPad



Mysterious Icon App

Today Apple announced new photos of iPad. One screenshot is very interesting as it contains mysterious icon on the home screen. It is situated on the right of the device and appears only in the one picture on site.

As you can see it looks like the logo of National Geographic, so we can assume the icon is for a digital version of this magazine.

What's new in iPhone OS 3.2 Beta 4



Apple recently released iPad/iPhone OS 3.2 Beta 4 to developers. Let's see what's new:

1. Application "Photos" has been improved. Here is text from official changelog:

"Launching the Photos application under the iPad Simulator will initially show three tabs: Photos, Albums, and Camera. The Camera tab represents photos available via the Camera Connection Kit for iPad, and is not relevant for the Simulator. The Camera tab will disappear after a few seconds. "

Apple actually specified what we had seen in 3.2 beta 3. The tab Camera is for the Camera Connection Kit, and does not indicate any front camera on the iPad.

The fonts have been also improved and there are some new Gestures added for images.

2. The function Add Bookmark in Safari browser works now (previously only allowed to link to home).

3. When you press the button twice on the lockscreen the iPod controls appear, just like on the iPhone:

4. With the iPad simulator is open, pressing "cmd + shift + space bar" will appear a list of languages. By pressing the space bar you can change language:

A closer look at the Apple iPad ad



ipad-ad

During the iPad presentation, Apple CEO Steve Jobs noted that it would offer a better experience than a smartphone and a notebook computer in the following areas:

  • Browsing
  • Email
  • Photos
  • Videos
  • Music
  • Games
  • eBooks

Apple recently aired iPad ad during the Oscars, which perfectly reflects this. Tuaw analyzed the video based on the on-air time dedicated to a particular function. It showed that a particular focus was on media consumption appeal and differentiation.

About 80% of all 720 frames (30 seconds * 24 fps) of the iPad's ad showed an app being used. And within this time, the photo app was shown the most (26%), the mail app came in second (22%). iBook app used 20% of time to position the iPad as a perfect eBook reader.

External Microphone for iPhone and iPod



ext-mic-7

Today we will take a look at an interesting accessory - external microphone for iPods and iPhones. As for the iPod everything it is quite simple - in order to record something you need an external mic. iPhone has it's own internal microphone. However the quality of the recording would be better with external one.

We performed a simple test: recorded the iTunes radio using Voice Memo application on the iPhone. First we used internal microphone and later we attached the external one. The quality of the external is slightly better. It is more sensible and the level of noise is lower which is good. Here are the sample recordings (m4a format): Internal, External.

This external microphone is compatible with:
- iPhone 3G/3GS
- iPod Touch 2G/3G (you need to download and install some recording application from AppStore)
- iPod Nano 4G/5G (with pre-installed software)
- iPod Classic 120G (with pre-installed software)

You can buy one for $3.12 at BudgetGadgets. They have free shipping worldwide. Use the coupon name VM5OFF5 during checkout, it will give you additional 5% discount.
