The latest data from mobile ad agency AdMob is in, and it contains some surprising information -- including that 57 percent of the 44 million unique iOS-based devices tracked are from outside of Apple’s home turf.
It didn’t take long for the vultures to circle: Apple’s hot new iPhone 4 has barely been in most customers’ hands for a week, and already a trio of class-action complaints have been filed against the company over reception issues.
Board-game favorite, Carcassonne makes a smooth transition to the iPhone. While we'd like even more features, a clean interface and online matches show how to update a game for digital devices. Strategy fans--whether they know the original or not--will dock this one on the main home screen.
A Bloomberg report on Tuesday claims that AT&T competitor Verizon Wireless may finally get the iPhone come January (we’ll believe it when we see it!), while an Oppenheimer analyst claims that Apple has 12 million waiting customers from the rival carrier, which could add another $7 billion to their already loaded coffers.
Apple CEO Steve Jobs may have suggested that iPhone 4 reception problems could be solved by using a case, but he wasn’t indicating that the company was willing to give them out for free, according to a rumored internal memo leaked on Tuesday.
Last week’s debut of iOS 4 and the iPhone 4 has brought with them an avalanche of App Store updates that make improvements for the latest and greatest, and on Tuesday a trio of them went live -- one new and two updates.
It’s not so much a firm denial of reality--even Steve Jobs’ magical reality distortion field only extends so far--so let’s call it a “soft denial.” There’s been too many complaints in the form of YouTube videos out there for Apple not to address the issue. But as of this writing, official company policy remains what Steve’s email said: Just avoid holding it that way.
As it turns out, iMovie for iPhone 4 isn’t limited to only editing 720p HD video from the new handset, although it does have a few limitations. Meanwhile, some enterprising hackers have already got mobile iMovie running on an iPhone 3GS.
If you need further proof that the iPhone 4 is the most popular out of the four generations thus far, look no further than to the photo above. That’s not folks sitting outside an AT&T store in Loganville, Georgia from last week -- it’s from early Tuesday morning, as folks are lining up yet again as AT&T gets their new stock.
