iPod 3,1 was caught in the internet





ipod

Apple’s third generation iPod touch seems to be going out for a little web-based test drive. Designated iPod touch 3,1, we first saw code hints of it in the iPhone 3.0 beta firmware, and then in rumors about the iPod touch getting a camera. Now, according to app analytics provider PinchMedia:

we’ve been noticing an “iPod 3,1″ string appearing in our version reporting, signifying what we believe to be a new yet-to-be-released version of the iPod Touch.

For the last two years, Apple has reveled new iPod touch models during their fall music-focused events. Last year, the second generation iPod touch debuted at Let’s Rock alongside iPhone 2.1, and iTunes 8. Since Apple likes their product cycles, does this mean we’ll see iPod touch 3,1 and iPhone 3.1 sometime this September?

JavaScript Benchmarks results: iPhone 3GS vs iPhone 3G vs T-Mobile G1 vs Palm Pre



speed-iphone_3gs

Medialets today released the results of JavaScript benchmark tests performed using the SunSpider test suite on the iPhone 3G and 3GS, the T-Mobile G1 running Android, and the Palm Pre running webOS. The use of the SunSpider suite for benchmarking studies enables cross-platform comparisons among the devices, as they all utilize WebKit-based Web browsers. In the Medialets study, the iPhone 3GS outperformed the Palm Pre by a factor of three and the T-Mobile G1 by over a factor of five.

Notably, Medialets also tested the iPhone 3G running both iPhone OS 2.2.1 and OS 3.0, revealing that iPhone OS 3.0 provides a nearly three-fold improvement in performance over OS 2.2.1 running on the same hardware. The shift to the iPhone 3GS increases performance a further three-fold.

the_new_iphone_by_crazyem

AppleiPhoneApps said they had received important messages from internal sources at Apple, for the next model of iPhone. Here’s a whole list of characteristics:

Prize and Models:

  • There will be two models of the iPhone: a 16 GB and another from 32GB. The 8gb model to be no longer marketed.
  • Prices remain the same as the 3G iPhone

Hardware & Design:

  • There will be a 3.2 MegaPixel camera
  • The screen is OLED-type (but not flexible)
  • Given the characteristics of these types of display, the battery will last longer
  • RAM and Process Power will double
  • FM receiver
  • The Apple logo will light up
  • Will add the magnetometer

They also said that the released date will be july 17 2009. I honestly do not think this are news. I think this is only a collection of all the rumors that have arrived in recent days. Obviously take the news as a rumor because it might be true as false.
