It seems to have taken a class action lawsuit to force AT&T to provide users with a free unlock code for their mobile devices after only 90 days of service.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t apply to Apple’s iPhone and handsets for which AT&T has an exclusivity sales arrangement with a manufacturer for 10 months or longer.
Late last week, AT&T announced that the Early Termination Fee on high-end devices like the iPhone will be nearly doubled from the beginning of June. This was followed by reports yesterday that Apple may have stopped the shipment of iPhone 3G to AT&T's retail stores.
The streak of events in the past one week has made it amply clear that the launch of Apple's new iPhone 4G model is imminent.
Walmart has announced a reduction in the price of iPhone 3GS starting today. It is offering a 16GB iPhone 3GS model for only $97 (instead of $197) with a two-year AT&T contract.
The deal currently appears to be active only for in-store purchases.
According to Boy Genius Report, Apple has stopped shipping the entry-level 8GB iPhone 3G models to AT&T's retail stores.
This indicates that Apple is probably phasing out the iPhone 3G models with two weeks to go for Apple’s WorldWide Developers Conference 2010 where it is expected to release the fourth generation iPhone.
It is now close to two years since Apple launched the App Store. With over 200,000 iPhone apps now available for download, the App Store has been a truly revolutionary concept, which has nurtured a great ecosystem of developers and consumers.
According to iPhone developer Steven Smith, the next big area where Apple can tap the collective knowledge of developers is in building plugins for the native Mobile Safari Web browser.
Google made some big announcements at Google I/O Conference last week. One of them was the launch of Android OS 2.2, dubbed Froyo. So what is Steve Jobs' take on the latest announcement?
A couple of emails exchanged between Apple enthusiasts and Steve Jobs over the weekend shows that Apple may counter Google's threat with few big announcements at Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2010, which starts on June 7.
Several rumors in the past few weeks have pointed out to the possibility of the next generation iPhone to be available on Verizon from September this year.
However, if the latest rumors are to be believed, customers may not get a Verizon iPhone anytime soon but they also may not have to wait so long for AT&T's network exclusivity to end.
Folks at Boy Genius Report have published screenshots that are supposedly from the "field test firmware" from the next generation iPhone.
We have already seen enough evidence, which has indicated that Apple’s fourth generation iPhone, which might be dubbed iPhone HD will offer video chat features as it will include a front facing camera.
