Its true, from all the rumors, speculations, it’s coming Apple will be holding a live event on the 27th of this month. Apple says to be showing their “latest creation” hmm?.. Will Apple be showing off their mysterious new tablet, Maybe, iLife ’10, its been about almost a year since the announcement of iLife ’09?, What about, a preview of the iPhone 4.0 os update? Multi-tasking. They were also rumors, the new iPhone OS 4.0 wasn’t suppose to be announced because, it had to much information about the new “tablet”. Indeed! Get Ready!
AT&T has just announced the will be upgrading their speed and performance of its network to HSPA 7.2 technology which promises faster mobile broadband speed, if you have the new iPhone 3GS, you should be set for this. These upgrades are expected to be complete by next year. A total of 1,900 cell sites are to be added by the end of next year.
This announcement comes for the whole lawsuit going on between AT&T and Verizon over the whole idea portrayed by Verizon, which basically shows AT&T’s network coverage is horrible. AT&T again complains the ad is misleading and tricks consumers into thinking AT&T coverage offers no coverage.
Verizon responded by saying “AT&T failed to invest adequately in the necessary infrastructure to expand its 3G coverage to support its growth in smartphone business and the usefulness of its service to smarthphone users has suffered accordingly.”
Another thing is the San Fransico area has seen a very high increase in its 3G coverage, AT&T estimates over 2000 percent since last year. So, overall United States network traffic has quadrupled in the past couple of years.
The latest filling was by Verizon on behalf of AT&T’s, which is basically summarized as “False and Misleading”. because they confuse customers into believing that AT&T Coverage is blank in most areas of the network. Verizon final conclusion filled Monday in Atlanta court basically tells AT&T to suck it up.
In the final analysis, AT&T seeks emergency relief because Verizon’s side-by-side, apples-to-apples comparison of its own 3G coverage with AT&T’s confirms what the marketplace has been saying for months: AT&T failed to invest adequately in the necessary infrastructure to expand its 3G coverage to support its growth in smartphone business and the usefulness of its service to smartphone users has suffered accordingly. AT&T may not like the message that the ads send, but this Court should reject its efforts to silence the messenger.
AT&T also as mention before released an issued response directly to its customers, saying the ads “so blatantly false and misleading, that we want to set the record straight about AT&T’s wireless data coverage” AT&T then went on a highlight the speed of its network and the total coverage of its 3G and EDGE Networks.
The thing that I don’t understand is why AT&T is doing this, I mean its a commercial of course ads, and going to try and prove there service/product is better than the latter, and a mere 30 seconds. What AT&T has to do is drop lawsuits and not calls. 3G is great in most areas, I usually never get EDGE, and I think AT&T and there customers know that. What Verizon should have focused on in the ads was not there data coverage, but there main weakness, Calls. Drop Calls. I can’t tell how many dropped calls I have had through AT&T’s network.
Fix your mistakes, or your users will make a mistake not switching sooner.
Don’t worry, everybody, your iPhone baking itself to a crisp is no cause for panic, now that Apple has found the culprit: the weather and your heartless negligence. Apparently you’ve been leaving your brand new iPhone 3GS in a hot car, and the warm sensation you feel any time you hold the phone has nothing to do with beefed up processors or inadequate cooling. Phew, glad that’s all sorted and now nobody will have any problems with self-destructive iPhones they paid hundreds of dollars for. Besides, it serves you right.
Well, iPhone OS 3.1 Beta just went live on Apple’s developer center and, as usual, it’s a quest to figure out what has changed. Our lovely developer friends have already started tearing it apart in search of that hidden gem detailing the iPhone 4GFP (The FP stands for “Face punch”), and we’re keeping tabs on what they find.
As far as we can tell, it’s almost entirely developer-oriented stuff.
- Around 15 new OpenGL toys for handling 3D models
- VideoEditorController API, which should let third party apps call up the video editing UI
- Video picker API, goes hand-in-hand with the above
- Plenty of obligatory “It seems faster!” reports
- Some are claiming that MMS is now enabled by default, though still not functioning properly on
AT&T. Seems strange to us that this would come via an OS update and not a carrier file update.
Let us know what you uncover, and we’ll add it to the list.
“1. You can now paste phone numbers into the phone app’s dialer. This wasn’t possible under the 3.0 firmwares. A neat feature is that it will convert alphanumeric phone numbers into a real phone number when pasting (e.g. 1-800-FLOWERS becomes 1-800-356-9377).
2. The phone vibrates once when going into icon-wiggle mode. Handy to let you know of any accidental activations I suppose.”
Bad News for the people who planned to pre order their new iPhone, and didn’t want to camp out in front an Apple Store. For the people who are making new pre ordered of their iPhone 3G[S] will have up to two weeks to get a phone. AT&T customers who do already have pre-orders in still have to line up at 7AM to nab a phone, but at least they’ve got a guaranteed slot if they show up, while the rest of the world will have to battle over remaining stock when Apple Stores open at 8AM and AT&T stores open to general customers at the same time. Looks like we might get a good riot or two out of this.

As you all know lately Apple just made some great news about the New iPhone OS 3.0, and its exciting features, well some people are moaning about how they have these features all ready, or they are making up useless info, which makes no logic sense, but is used to cover up half the errors made by those phones. Yes, the iPhone does have many bugs throughout its OS, but none to the extent of Windows Mobile based phones. I mean, does it matter if you have a flash light on your phone, a 5mp camera(which I wouldn’t mind), a infrared receiver.
