Recently, we had come up with our wishlist for iPhone 4G – Apple's next generation iPhone that is expected to be launched later this year. You may recall that one of the demands in the wishlist was for 4G network compatibility in the upcoming iPhone model. With multimedia content becoming increasingly popular on the iPhone, the need for a network with higher data speed has thus become imperative.
Will the iPad change the way people consume content? In an interesting article published earlier this week, NewsWeek writer Daniel Lyons sees how our lifestyles could change once the iPad goes mainstream.

Folks at Patent Authority report that the deal was made on the 17th of this month though the price of the transaction is not yet known.
Every once in a while we come across a new smartphone that can truly take on the iPhone in performance. Sprint has just removed the wraps on what could be a truly potent Android handset – the HTC EVO 4G.

The iPad is seen as a platform that bridges the gap between mobile phones and notebooks.
