Apple may be plagued with a trademark dispute over the iPad name at the moment, but that hasn’t distracted them from expanding the horizons for the iPhone, which will finally debut on China Telecom next month as widely rumored.
It’s been something of a long week, especially for those trotting around in the Las Vegas desert for the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show, which wraps up today. As we sit back and reflect on the week’s events, let’s take in a few more tidbits of news from the last 24 hours, including the troubled launch of the iPhone 4S in mainland China, kudos for Tiffen at CES, Apple’s supplier responsibility report and more for this fine Friday, January 13, 2012. Watch out for those ladders and black cats, folks!
Apple has made a splash with the iPhone 4S in the final months of 2011 across many continents, but one of the biggest has been left waiting: China. On Wednesday, the company announced that mainland China will finally be getting the latest version of the iconic handset along with 21 other countries on Friday, January 13.
One more week to go! By this time next Friday, we’ll all be waiting anxiously for the fat man in the red suit to sprint down our chimneys and leave some (hopefully Mac-related) goodies under the tree. In the meantime, the tech news is showing no signs of letting up, with plenty of rumors and product news to keep you busy on this fabulous Friday, December 16, 2011.
It’s 11/11/11, which just so happens to also be Veteran’s Day here in these United States of America, It’s also a Friday, which means most of us are ready to eject the grueling memories of another work week and enjoy the weekend. But first, let’s take a moment and give some thanks to all of the veterans who have made such freedom possible in the first place -- and before you slam the office door behind you, read on for some of the other things making news on this Friday, November 11, 2011.
Who’s amped up for the weekend?! iPhone 4S early adopters are now celebrating their seven-day anniversary with their new little friend and everyone is geared up for Monday’s debut of the Walter Isaacson authorized bio of Steve Jobs -- but those aren’t the only things making news today. Here’s a look at what’s new for this fine Friday, October 21, 2011.
If you still think the iPhone 4S is underwhelming, you may actually be alone in that opinion. Apple has just announced that the new handset racked up more than four million handsets sold in the first weekend -- and they’re just getting started.
Happy iPhone 4S Day! It’s been a crazy week for Apple fans with iOS 5, iCloud and a ton of related updates mid-week and now the new hardware finally arriving in stores today. Unfortunately it seems like many of us are stuck with a device that can’t be activated (on AT&T at least, see below) -- so here’s some reading material to keep you occupied for this Friday, October 14, 2011.
Oh, the glorious launches! How I always look forward to this day. Not only do I get to work from home, but I get to walk around downtown San Francisco, talk to the Apple-heads in line and partake in the glory of another one of Apple's mobile product launches. It's actually really fun, and if you play your cards right you can end up with free breakfast.
I do want to mention, however, that this year's iPhone line seemed really underwhelming compared to the iPad 2 launch earlier this year, or even last year's iPhone 4 debut. But regardless of the number of bodies in line, the numbers of pre-orders prove that more people just decided to go to work today and have the UPS guy drop off their new iPhone, rather than wait in line. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that the 4S is just a bump up from its predecessor, or perhaps it's evidence of an economic climate that prevents us from taking time off from work to get our iPhones from the Apple Store. But I'm not going to sit here and get political. Let's go look at the photos!
