Verizon Sold at Least One Million CDMA iPhones at Launch

While neither Apple nor Verizon commented on the Verizon iPhone 4 sales figures thus far, according to Reuters and the Wall Street Journal, the pair managed to sell at least 1 million devices during the first weekend the device launched.

While the number of Verizon iPhones sold at launch is impressive, it is not as high as initially expected, as many analysts were forecasting higher sales figures. Nevertheless, the device has already proved to be a success, as its sales figures are almost as high as the sales figures enjoyed by the original iPhone 4 when launched back in June 2010. The launch also proved to be the most successful Verizon-branded phone launch so far.

T-Mobile Takes Another Cheap Shot at Verizon and at&t

T-Mobile may not have deep enough pockets to convince Apple to build an iPhone fully compatible with its network, but the operator surely has enough marketing funds to constantly remind iPhone buyers that they are making the wrong choice by agreeing to buy a phone riding on its competitors’ networks.

The wireless provider, who recently rolled out a so-called ‘4G’ network, just released a new set of ads stressing how slow Verizon and at&t’s 3G networks can be when compared to T-Mobile’s. While nicely put together, the new campaign is extremely misleading, as T-Mobile is really comparing apples to oranges (no pun intended).

New Pictures of Alleged iPhone 5 Parts Leaked

New pictures of an alleged iPhone 5 part surfaced today, showing what appears to be a dock connector, as well as the ribbon to link the connector to the iPhone 5 motherboard. The only marking visible on the part reads ‘821-1300-02HF/c1’, a reference number never seen on previous generation iPhones.

The part was uncovered by Apple.pro, an Apple news site based in Taiwan. According to the site, the component is part of a new sliding cover mechanism, similar to the one featured in most Android phones.

First Generation iPad Production Stopped, Stocks Nearly Depleted

Two days away from the launch of the iPad 2, it appears that the first generation iPad stocks are nearly depleted. Not exactly a surprise, given that Apple recently ramped up the production of the iPad 2, but it also implies that Apple apparently ceased to manufacture the first generation of the device, and has stopped shipping the device to its channel partners.

As a result, Apple resellers are now unable to order first generation iPads, and no ETA (estimated time of arrival) is provided, which indicates that current stocks will simply not be renewed.

Picture of Alleged White iPad 2 Part Leaked

Is Apple about to announce both black and white versions of the iPad 2 on Wednesday? Based on a leaked picture uncovered by the folks at 9to5mac/ifixyouri, it would appear so.

Play PS3 Games on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad

everyAir, a little handy VNC-like app that allows you to remotely connect to your Mac or PC via your iOS device, offers a neat – yet barely documented – feature: besides being able to let iOS-powered devices users play OS X and Windows games, it can also be used to play PS3 games.

Don’t rejoice too quickly though, as playing PS3 games on an iOS device is not exactly straightforward, but if you own a PC/Mac, a PS3, and some extra hardware, it should only takes 10 minutes to make your device ‘PS3-enabled’.

Apple Experimenting with Android-Inspired Gestures for iOS

Apple has been working on new gestures for iOS for quite some time, such as four/five fingers gestures to jump from active apps to the home screen, to switch between apps, or to reveal the multitasking bar.

As reported by 9to5mac, a new set of Android-inspired gestures is currently being experimented by Apple, to allow iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users to unlock their device via a graphical pattern, instead of a numeric PIN. With this new graphical pattern unlock, users will be presented a ‘dot grid’, and will be required to correctly connect at least four dots to gain access to their device.
