Pinger said that its app reaches over 5.8 million active U.S. teens and young adults. This total number represents approximately 10% of the overall U.S teen market. This clearly means that teens love to text and talk, especially when it is for free over Wi- Fi on an iPod Touch, iPad or Android phone or tablet. –> Read more
As the Samsung-Apple war continues, Samsung released another ad about “I just got Samsunged.” In the ad the Samsung focused on the guys waiting in the line to buy iPhone. This is not the first time Samsung has made an ad like this. Though the video is fun to watch, there’s not a true meaning that hopped out at us about what Samsung is really trying to get at.
Everyone get out their calendar and clear a spot for a much needed Apple Keynote. Yes ladies and gentleman, this morning Mr. Tim Cook himself sent out invitations for an Apple event on October 4th, that hints at an upcoming announcement for the next generation iPhone. Usually about this time of the year, Apple has a music event in which they introduce their new iPod lineup. Judging by the “lets talk iPhone” it looks like Apple is planning –> Read more
According analyst Ming-Chi Kou, the next generation iPhone or the iPhone 5 is going to look just like the current iPhone or the iPhone 4. Apple has redesigned the antenna for the iPhone 5 to overcome the antenna issue they had to face last year with iPhone 4, commonly know as the “grip of death.” the issue was that iPhone would loose its antenna strength when one held the device in his/her fist, as the antenna was located on the left edge of the device.
She further added that the next generation iPhone also share the same amount RAM as the current counter part which is about 512MB of DRAM, the device even shares the physical resemblance with the current generation, it would have the same gorilla glass front and back with all components packed between them. –> Read more
So I hope everyone realizes that the the anticipation for the iPhone 5 isn’t only expected for the U.S. but is widely anticipated and expected soon for the rest of the world too. Some new iPhone 5 news has broken to customers who carry service with Deutsche Telekom.
Today, Bloomberg reported that spokesman Alexander von Schmettow said, Deutsche Telekom will allow customers to reserve the next generation iPhone “as of today in anticipation of supply bottlenecks for the device,” over the phone.
Deutsche Telekom will be handing out coupons to the people who “expressly request the successor model to the iPhone 4,” starting today. –> Read more
Japanese-language news site Kodawarisan reported today that Apple is planning to hold this year’s “iPod media event” on September 7th. If Apple doesn’t spill the beans about the new iPhone before September 7th, could this be the event that we have all be waiting for? Well BGR thinks it is. In a blog post earlier today, Zach Epstein reported that “it seems very likely that Apple will use its annual September media event to unveil the iPhone 5 rather than just refreshed iPods.” Looks like we just have to wait and see but we will keep you posted.
The world is ancitipating the next-generation iPhones release to be in September. Now there are a number of tech blogs out there but All Things D is calling the September bluff. All Things D issued and article that stated “So those rumors claiming the iPhone 5 will debut in late September? They’re wrong. Instead, it’s going to be an October surprise — the month in which Apple plans to launch its next-gen iPhone.”
Does All Things D seem a little cocky with statement? Sure, but the blog has always had some relatively close sources when it comes to “rumors.” The rumors are only going to get worse over the next coming weeks.

Pictures of a tapered and thinner iPhone case are now floating around the web. Today, 9to5mac posted these pictures of a silicone case for the fifth-generation iPhone.
The case would go hand-in-hand with the proposed picture of the next generation iPhone featured on Macotakara.
This is going to be an exciting Fall with the next generation iPad and iPhone releasing. Hope everyone is putting their pennies in their piggy bank. This Fall is about to get really expensive.
TPK Holdings has been know for being able to produce massive quantities without cutting corners with product quality.
Cens.com reported an article that read: “The Taiwan-based TPK Holdings Ltd., now the world’s largest touch panel maker by output, is expected to snap up 70-80% of Apple Inc.’s orders for touch panels used in the upcoming iPhone 4S, securing strong growth momentum for its profits, according to industry insiders.”

Well here comes another iPhone rumor. This time BGR is reporting that there is an “incredibly solid source” behind this one. According to BGR’s source, “Apple will indeed be launching a prepaid / lower cost iPhone this year. We are told the handset will retail for no more than $350 without contract.” The source also mentioned that the pre-paid device could be the current iPhone 3GS. BGR’s source did not know whether the next iPhone would be featuring any changes to the design but is confident that the device will deliver or ““at least announced by the end of Summer, late August-ish.” Many rumors are also surrounding the next iPhones launch about whether Apple will be expanding the devices availability to other carriers. Do you think the iPhone will expand to Sprint and T-Mobile?
Currently, Samsung is the only supplier of the A5 chips used in Apples infamous iPad 2. Apple may be looking to take their current business elsewhere for their next A6 processors. Reuters has reported that “Taiwan’s TSMC has begun trial manufacturing of next generation chips for Apple Inc’s mobile devices, a source with knowledge of the matter said on Friday, in a sign that the iPad maker is shifting from its traditional chip supplier, Samsung Electronics.”
With all the legal disputes going on in court with the “who infringed on who’s patents”, it would not be a surprise to see Apple look elsewhere. What company do you think will win over Apples business?
A Dutch blog named AppleSpot.nl issued a report yesterday stating that the next iPod touch may be 3G compatible. If revamped with the 3G connectivity, the phone would be similar to the iPad in delivering only data capabilities and no voice calling capabilities. It would also be similar to the iPad in the sense that you could walk into a wireless carriers store and grab it off the shelf.
Why the release of a 3G iPod seems highly unlikely:
- The next generation iPod is rumored to launch in September. September already seems like a busy month for Apple due to the expected release of their next iPhone and iPad.
- The release of the 3G iPod seems highly unlikely and 9to5Mac issued this on their report: “Note that 9to5Mac is putting a heavy amount of skepticism on this report because the blog’s track record is literally non-existent. In addition, they provided little information about the alleged 3G feature.”
Should Apple take the iPod to the next level and integrate the 3G capability?
So the battle over the last couple of months has been weather the next iPhone would be named the iPhone 5 or the iPhone 4S.
Deutsche Bank analyst Chris Whitmore is telling clients to expect and iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S to release in September. ”With Nokia and RIMM struggling,” he writes, “the time is right for Apple to aggressively penetrate the mid range smart-phone market (i.e. $300-500 category) to dramatically expand its [total addressable market] and market share.”
The information that Chris Whitmore has given investors, is suggesting that the iPhone 5 may have a redesigned feel to it, but the iPhone 4S will feature the same design as the current iPhone 4. He is also claiming that the iPhone 4S will be available for prepaid phone service for $349.
The rumors have started all over again. Do you think any of the information that Chris Whitmore suggests is accurate or is he just full of it?
Apple has just released the second beta of iOS 5 for developers. BGR recently reported a tip from one of their readers that Apple “just unleashed iOS 5 beta for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch units – for developers only.” What is the biggest benefit to Apple fans so far? Wi-Fi syncing with iTunes 10.5.
Obviously the the next generation iPhone will not be releasing this June. The original rumors were that the next generation iPhone would be shipping out in the latter part of September and go on sale in early October.
Bloomberg reported that “Apple Inc. plans to introduce a new iPhone in September that boasts a stronger chip for processing data and a more advanced camera, according to two people familiar with the product. The device will include the A5 processor, the more powerful chip that Apple added to the iPad 2 earlier this year, along with an 8-megapixel camera, up from the 5-megapixel model in the iPhone 4, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the details aren’t public.”
The next generation iPhone will be running the iOS 5 operating system that was shown to the world at Apples WWDC.
The company is also working on a cheaper iPhone that would closely resemble the current iPhone 4.
So until September rolls around, start saving your pretty pennies or find a job, so you can get your next generation iPhone and iPad 3.
