UK Wireless Carriers Drop iPad Price In Anticipation Of iPad 2





ipad2

The United Kingdom wireless carriers have begun lowering their prices on the first-generation iPad in anticipation of the launch of the iPad 2 in April. Both T-Mobile and Orange are now selling the original iPad for £99 with a 24-month data contract. This £100 is a strongly indication that carriers know that their current iPad stocks will soon be in less demand. Though, there is no information on official launch of the iPad 2. But on April 3rd will be a year since the original iPad was released, the history of iOS product launches strongly suggests a late March or early April debut of the iPad 2.

Manuals on Amazon Suggest Late July Launch for Lion



lionamazon

The  Amazon UK website placed several manuals for the upcoming Mac OS X 10.7 Lion  that will be released late in July. That fact might suggest that the operating system will also launch around that time. It seems that the OS will be released right after WWDC, this year expected to be from July 5 to July 9. The cover of one of the Mac OS X Lion manuals makes reference to the already announced Launchpad and Mission Control features but also references the dock, most of which was demonstrated last year at the Lion announcement. Noteworthy to say that the release date of these guidebooks is a good indication of product launches. For example, Amazon information predicted the release date Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac.

Biggest iPhone on Earth



London travelers have a reason to smile. At the St. Pancras International Train Station, visitors are being greeted by a huge iPhone display.

It is called the “Biggest iPhone on Earth” since the display is actually made of 56 iPads. It advertises the new game, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. The first people who saw the gigantic iPhone were given free iPads, which surely made traveling better for those people.

Verizonsales

Another Gene Munster's research note reveals that Apple will release the CDMA-enabled iPhone in early to mid 2011, ad 2,5 million of these devices will be sold by Verizon in 2011.

Piper Jaffray, where Munster works at, assumed that Verizon will sell approximately 25 million smartphones in the next year, and 36% of it (or 9 million) will be Apple's iPhones. But the majority of those who will buy CDMA-enabled iPhone occurs to be the switchers from AT&T, and that's why only 2.5 million Apple's phones will be sold by Verizon.

European carriers threaten Apple over embedded SIM option



SIM free iphone

As reported, Apple is developing a built-in SIM card for the Phone. Such embedded SIM card allows users to activate their devices with a broad array of carriers. Moreover, with such card, customers could insist on shorter-term contracts, using the ability to easily switch between carriers as leverage. So, some European carriers (Vodafone in the UK, France Telecom and Telefónica in Spain) are threatening Apple to withhold their iPhone subsidies if the company deploys the technology on the iPhone. Apple was accused in gain control of carriers’ relationship with their mobile customers. This technology allows customers to sign up for mobile service directly on Apple's website. It could allow customers to switch more easily from one to another and even lead to a "war" between operators and Apple. As estimated, Apple’s global iPhone sales could take a 12 percent hit if European carriers carried out their threats.

Macs Will Get USB 3.0 support later



appleports

Recently released MacBook Airs don't have USB 3.0, and there are many rumors whether Apple will ever adopt this technology and when it will happen. But this week someone named Tom Kruk asked Steve Jobs via e-mail why no Mac with USB 3.0 is still available and received an answer. Here is it:

“We don’t see USB 3 taking off at this time. No support from Intel, for example.”

So that means we can expect USB 3.0 support as soon as Intel will adopt its platform.
