Apple, “Somebody stop me!!!”

Not far long was the announcement of the Verizon iPhone. The iPhone community all over the globe are beginning to hear news that incorporates Apple’s plans to prepare the iPhone 5 and iPad 2 based upon a newer and faster dual core processor that would support much higher resolution in an astonishing way.

So much for the iPhone community being able to enjoy games and applications on their iPhone that incorporate high resolution, it wasn’t long when people were left awed with the iPhone 4, the iPhone 5 is assumed to be very much around the corner. The newer and faster dual core processor can very easily inherit the legacy of the A4 (the processor used in iPhone 4 and iPad) and the chances are high that it would be called A5.

Apple has been working along the Blue Ocean strategy for long. It is their high quality and distinctive interface upon which they prepare their products that really matters. The non-compatibility of major applications has allowed Apple to stand out of the ordinary. Apple, be it iPhone, iPad or their systems, has always considered its competition as well as its customers irrelevant.

Alongside Apple, another highly successful interface is that of the Google Android. Android has done wonders with respect to its growth and success in recent times. But most importantly, Google Android has not yet been as quick in terms of development as the Apple and its iPhone.

Think of a 10-inch display screen that incorporates features and high resolution that a 24-inch monitor displays. This sort of development and expertise in technology is something that is not usually heard of and if anyone has had the potential to do it, that anyone surely cannot be any other than Apple who can make it happen. Similar technology is reportedly to be utilized in the Apple TV and it would further augment the productivity and effectiveness of the iPad 2 as the usage of this technology would make the iPad 2 compatible for all GSM, UMTS and CDMA networks.

Report: iOS 7 May Hit iPhones and iPods Before it Comes to iPads

iOS 7

Apple is supposedly having an event on September 10, and one of the rumored announcements for this hypothetical event is the final version of iOS 7. While support is planned for the iPhones 4, 4S, and 5; the fifth-generation iPod touch; and the iPad 2, iPad mini, and both Retina iPads, a report from 9to5Mac says that the tablet builds are running behind the phone builds and may be delayed slightly. Citing “chatter within Apple” and a feeling among developers that the iPad builds are relatively “unstable and unreliable,” the report says that Apple may opt to upgrade its tablets in a 7.0.1 release that trails the iPhone’s upgrade by a few weeks. The beta builds of iOS 7 also came to the iPhones first-the public beta introduced after WWDC supported iPhones and iPods, but it wasn’t until Beta 2 was issued two weeks later that the software could be installed on iPads.

T-Mobile Finds That Giving Away Free Data Is Harder Than It Sounds


T-Mobile figures that by giving tablet users free data, it might turn a few of them into paying customers.

But it turns out that giving away data is sometimes harder than it seems. T-Mobile’s operations – both human and computer-based – were just not set up to have a nonpaying relationship with customers. As a result, some of the company’s new tablet customers were erroneously charged $10 per month for data that was supposed to be free. T-Mobile has since corrected the problem, and plans to issue refunds to affected customers.

“We had a technology glitch and a training issue that caused some people to believe [they were being charged] – and some people to be charged,” T-Mobile chief marketing officer Mike Sievert said in an interview. “That’s just not right.”

T-Mobile’s plan does allow tablet buyers to bring over any new or existing tablet that’s compatible with T-Mobile’s network and get 200 megabytes of free data each month. On the iPad, for example, customers don’t even need to enter a credit card number, Sievert said. Anyone who was charged $10 for the free service will be credited automatically, he added.

“Every single customer gets free data for life if they have a tablet on our network,” Sievert said. “You don’t need to have any paying relationship with us whatsoever.”

The only other catch – and T-Mobile argues it has been clear about this from the start – is that customers who want to finance their tablet purchase through the carrier must have a paid relationship with T-Mobile.

But that doesn’t necessarily need to be through the tablet. For example, a T-Mobile postpaid phone customer could finance their iPad interest free, even without signing up for a monthly plan for the tablet. Those who aren’t phone customers need at least a $20-per-month tablet plan in order to finance the purchase.

Still, some are grousing that T-Mobile did make it sound like every customer could have both totally free data and finance their device.

“By offering free data for life with incredible upfront pricing, T-Mobile is un-leashing customers to fully enjoy iPad as it was meant to be enjoyed – mobile and connected,” CEO John Legere said in a press release touting the free data offer in conjunction with the ability to pay for the device in installments. T-Mobile phone customers can do both, but those without another line of T-Mobile service have to pay for their device outright or sign up for monthly paid data service to get the 200MB of free data.

Sievert said the free data offer is designed primarily to give people who aren’t currently T-Mobile customers a chance to try out the company’s network. “It has so rapidly improved and changed,” Sievert said. “It stacks up to everyone … People will eventually want more data from us.”

Update, 8:20 p.m.: T-Mobile has posted an updated FAQ to its Web site detailing the issues.

“We readily admit that we had some executional issues around our tablet launch on Nov. 1.,” T-Mobile says on the page. “Breaking with the industry norm and giving data away for free is complicated. There were legacy elements in our system and in our training activities that created the confusion. We are actively working to fix and clarify the website while re-educating all of our channel reps.”

Or, as Legere put it on Twitter:

“Bottom line: we are working to clear up the confusion, but at least we admit it & make it right,” he said, before taking a swipe at AT&T.

Samsung Says Apple Is Trying to Patent Pretty Phones and Shouldn’t Get More Than Another $52 Million

Samsung said that Apple’s lawyers are conflating a few patents with the entirety of the iPhone and argued the Korean electronics giant shouldn’t have to pay more than $52 million for a series of phones and tablets found to infringe on Apple patents.


Everett Collection /

“Apple has tried to mischaracterize these patents so they are the iPhone,” Samsung lawyer Bill Price said in closing arguments of a partial retrial of last year’s patent infringement case. Price argues that Apple essentially wants its patents to cover any phones that look pretty or work well.

This case is far more narrow than the one heard by a jury in the same courtroom last year. The bulk of last year’s $1 billion verdict, as well as the findings of patent, were upheld; however, Judge Lucy Koh ruled that the jury erred in part of its damage calculation, necessitating the current proceedings.

Jurors in this hearing have only to figure out what the right damage amount is for that portion of the case.

Price argues that Apple produced iPhone product reviews showing how pretty and revolutionary the phone was, but said that the issue is not the iPhone itself, but the handful of patents at issue. “These patents are very narrow,” Price said. “They don’t own everything they think they own and the scope of those patents are not as broad as they come in here [saying].”

He also disputed Apple’s contention that Samsung’s internal documents show it was looking to copy the iPhone.

“Competitors are always looking at rival products to see ‘Where are we lagging?'” Price said. “Apple does the same thing.”

Samsung’s arguments followed Apple’s closing, in which it made the case for why it is due a further $379 million.

Price wrapped up shortly before noon, saying: “Really what they are saying is in the market justice is ‘just us.’ “

Apple lawyer Harold McElhinny now has a few minutes of time to make a rebuttal argument and then the jury will start its deliberations.

Google Maps 2.0 Rolls out to iOS, Offers iPad Support and More

Google Maps

Poor Apple Maps. While we see very minor improvement from Apple’s year-old Maps application, Google continues to improve its world-class offering pretty rapidly. Why, Wednesday, in fact, Google launched an update to the Google Maps for iOS app, adding support for the iPad, indoor maps, and a slew of other features that were released with the recent Android Google Maps update. Google Maps 2.0 now fully supports the larger screen sizes of the iPad and iPad mini, as well as offering indoor maps with walking directions for transit stations, airports, malls and other large buildings. Past that, you’ll also notice that the Google Maps iOS app now offers better navigation with live traffic updates and incident reports. Meanwhile, Apple Maps still hasn’t figured out transit directions.

Over 90% of iOS Apps are Free, Average Cost is 19 Cents

App Store

There’s an emerging view among iOS developers that both the amount of work involved and value created by app development merit higher prices for apps. But a new study shows that developers test pricing tend to lower the price of their apps – or even charge nothing at all. New research published Thursday from mobile analytics firm Flurry, which looked at app pricing over the past four years for 350,000 apps using Flurry’s mobile analytics service, found that developers are charging less for their apps over time, and many times, end up going completely free. (The results are weighted to account for number of users for each app.) The result is more ad-laden apps. But Flurry says purchase habits show that user demand is higher for apps that will cost them nothing, even if there are ads as a result.
