A number of Android smartphones have already shipped with near field communication (NFC) and have already taken advantage of the applications of this technology with Google Wallet and Android Beam. However, it appears that Apple is also planning to include this capability in the next-generation iPhone.
Consumers waited for more than a year for the arrival of the Apple iPhone 4S. It did not turn out to be the highly awaited iPhone 5 but no one can deny the fact that it is the best among Apple's cell phones. However, there are plenty of iPhone alternatives in the market like the Samsung Epic 4G Touch from Sprint. Can the iPhone 4S top the competition this year? Or will Apple's popular product finally topple from its pedestal. Let's compare the newest iPhone with the Samsung Epic 4G Touch to see if the 4S can keep up with the competition.
Here's a nice rumor for T-Mobile subscribers. Remember the LG Optimus 2X with its 1Ghz Dual-core Processor (NVIDIA Tegra 2), 4-inch WVGA screen, and 8 megapixel rear camera? Well, this upcoming Android smartphone appears to be headed for the T-Mobile line-up.
The folks at TMoNews have obtained a leaked internal LG document suggesting that the fourth largest US carrier will launch the LG Optimus 2X as the T-Mobile G2X.
Apple has introduced the iPad 2 and the latest software update for its iDevices. The latest iteration of iOS will be available on March 11th to all iPad, iPhone (GSM), and iPod touch (3rd & 4th generation) owners.
Apple has released the latest software update for the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch 2nd generation, iPod touch 3rd generation, and iPod touch 4th generation to the public. iOS 4.1 provides a number of new features including High Dynamic Range (HDR) image capture, Game Center and HD video uploads over WiFi
Some notable numbers and stats from the press release:
To put this into perspective, Apple sold around 6 million of the iPhone original over a span of 15 months (5 quarters). As well, 3.2 million activations is almost 10 times as many as the 3GS had upon its release. So in just shy of a month, 3.2 million iPhone(4?)s have been activated.
Having used LastPass Free for a little while now, I finally caved, upgraded to premium and installed the app to see how well it translates to the iPhone. Basically, LastPass is a simple program that vaults all of your passwords and, once saved to your vault, will auto-fill and remember passwords for you. Simple enough, yes, but it also has some great features that make it unique in the "password-remembering industry," as well as just being incredibly easy to use.
No one can deny that the Apple iPhone 4 and the HTC EVO 4G are two of most feature-rich, popular and powerful smartphones in the market. These high-end smartphones belong to the highest echelon among the handsets that are currently available in the market. AT&T and Apple hopes that the iPhone 4 will continue the successful run of previous models while Sprint expects the EVO 4G will help to stem the yearly iPhone migration. Both handsets have proven to be successful early on and the demand for both smartphones have exceeded supply. Let's do a head-to-head comparison of the iPhone 4 and EVO 4G to find out which handset comes out on top.
As you can probably tell, this whole antenna issue with the iPhone 4 has become something of a media nightmare for Apple.
