As we all remember, Apple announced that the white iPhone 4 won't appear in retail until spring 2011. But it seems not a problem for a German e-tailer Notebook.de, which has already started shipping the elusive handset. But its price is quite high! A plain, black iPhone 4 16GB would set you back between €649 and €699 in the EU market, but the white one goes for €1999. The 32GB model is listed at €2199. The retailer specifically states that phones in question are not modified in any way and that they are factory packaged, describing them as a "rarity".
This morning Apple dropped the price of the Mac mini in international markets. In Europe the price was cut down on €100. It is now available for just €709 and €999 from most European stores. In the United Kingdom the Mac mini price dropped on £50 (from £649 to £599). This is probably in response to the dollar's continuing decline relative to other currencies. Prices in the U.S. remain unchanged at $699 and $999 for the two Mac mini models.
Earlier this week Apple opened it online store in China. Now people in China are able to order Apple’s products directly from the company. But within 10 hours after the store’s opening the whole amount of the iPhone 4 was sold out. And again like in situation with Apple’s retails stores in Chine, scalpers were blamed in rapid depletion of Apple's online store stocks. In Apple’s retail stores are not allowed to sell large number of the device per a person, the online store appears to be not protected from scalpers, who have special auto-refresh system to place orders.
The demand for iPhone 4 is really high in Chine. People don’t even care about price and people, who sell them handsets. They just want to get the rumored device and tell friends that they have one.
Today two largest wireless carriers in the USA started offering the iPad in their brick-and-mortar stores. The date of Oct. 28 was announced few weeks earlier. As you remember, AT&T will be selling all 3G-enabled iPads with standard prices, and Verizon will only sell Wi-Fi iPads but with MiFi 2200 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot routers, and the bundles will have the same cost as 3G-enabled models.

Verizon's sale of Apple's iPad for the holidays became the reason to steam the rumors about CDMA version of the iPhone that will be compatible with its network and must supposedly appear in early 2011.
Barron's rumor that Apple may be considering an acquisition of Sony, which appeared last Saturday, has gained more steam. According to Reuters, today the stocks of an electronic giant raised up to 3% at one point.
Analysts are skeptical on whether the rumors may be true as Apple can only execute a hostile takeover which will lower its reputation and lead to negative consequences on the Japanese market.

Cult of Mac’s sources in Apple provide a new portion of information about a next-gen MacBook Air, which is expected to be released during the Apple's media event on Wednesday. Here is a short summary:
Research firm iSuppli estimated the component costs for the new Apple TV at under $64, representing a 35% margin on the new device before accounting for such expenses as research and development, software, patent royalties, marketing costs. The most expensive components in the new Apple TV are the A4 processor that powers the device ($16.55) and the 8 GB NAND flash memory chip ($14.00). It is worthwhile to say that Intel’s Pentium Chip ($40) plus the chipset ($28) on the previous model alone cost more than the whole new AppleTV today ($99 new vs. $299 old).
iSuppli's teardown analysis claims that the parts in the 8 GB version of the sixth generation nano cost $43.73. Manufacturing costs are estimated at $1.37. Based on iSuppli's breakdowns of all six generations of the iPod nano, the current generation ranks as second least expensive.
PR managers of Incipio admit that these straps are the best. Well, we need only to know their price ... but so far we've noticed only the following message: "Incipio offers new and unique design of straps for iPod nano iWatch. They are made of advanced polymer materials and are quite comfortable in use ...".
Thus, we can only hope that their price won't be pretty high for those users who are ready to buy one of them.
The What is iPad series of the commercials continues to tell us just how wonderful the device is– now iPad is not only Delicious, iPad is Musical!
The ad shows the device in several scenes with a caption for each. Now we know that iPad is medical, live, musical, work, play, memories, social, magazines and historic.
Enjoy the video – quite a nicely created ad!
Are you still poking around to see if there's any iPhone case worth buying? So, pay attention on this awesome audio cassette case from a company called Fred and Friends. It looks like an old plastic audiocassette, but it's actually made of silicone, and it even comes with a little tape box that flips around into a video stand. It will be stocked exclusively in black and white colorways.
Despite the fact that today you can find a large number of touchscreen keyboards, most of them preserve their commitment to solid tactile surfaces. But what do you feel when you see a new Mini Key case sporting a QWERTY keyboard for your iPhone 4?
According to iLounge, at this week’s event Apple is planning to unveil its new 2.8-inch iPod touch sporting the same resolution as latest versions of the device. It is said that the current Nano’s screen is a bit smaller, only 2.4 inches. At the same time it is running on the same processor (although it has less RAM).
The idea is pretty good, because it will help fill the gap between your Nano and Shuffle devices.
Some users believe that they would have difficulties in typing on 2.8-inch iPod touch, but we are sure that kids will really appreciate it. And the price is pretty funny, right?
Yet it is a very interesting concept. Just imagine Wi-Fi, web browser, email, 250, 000 applications from the App Store, maps, videos, photos and much more for $ 100 dollars. Is it tempting?
