I have not really wanted an iPhone until now. If this comes true, I will have this phone. They are claiming that it wouldn’t be marketed to the consumer market??? What?!! What the hell am I then? I would prefer this phone over the one out now. What do you think??
Rumors are going around that Apple has developed and manufactured an iPhone (3G presumably) with a full slide out QWERTY keyboard like those found on other smart phones. No actual photos have surfaced (yet), nor specs of how the actual phone looks or how the slide mechanism works (again – yet), but knowing Apple, it’s design and function is sleek, intuitive and dead sexy.
I have speculated about the idea and suspected Apple introducing a QWERTY style iPhone for numerous reasons. Among them more screen real estate will be made available for writing/viewing documents/websites/emails with the keyboard moved to a separate physical location and also to satisfy a part of the (business) market that wants a full QWERTY they can touch with their fat money making thumbs.
According to Guy Kewney, (NewsWireless.Net) the testers are among some of the Carriers that currently carry the iPhone (and soon iPhone 3G), and are only in the hands of the big boys who can be trusted to keep things very quiet – and that of course means no leaked photos.
“Rumours from inside Cupertino suggest that Jobs himself doesn’t have this sort of religious hangup about his own work. Reports from inside mobile operators show that whether or not he ever makes it work, he is already trying to make a “slide-out” keyboard for a corporate version of the iPhone.
If this version does appear on the market, it won’t be this year, and certainly won’t be aimed at the consumer market. Consumers love the sleek, elegant design of the iPhone, and quickly fall in love with the on-screen keyboard.
But Steve Jobs can do the sums. In America, iPhone has perhaps overtaken Blackberry in total sales – but these sales are in what they call “the executive corridor.”
In what has to be the most under whelming unveiling yet — and a bad case of stolen thunder — for one of the largest retailers in the world, Walmart (unhyphenated as a single word from now on) just uploaded a formal, band-aid of a press release to their web site confirming the logo change that surfaced over the weekend when The Wall Street Journal reported that the Memphis and Shelby County Division of Planning and Development had received documents from Walmart with the intent of opening a prototype store there. An artist rendering on those documents showed a new sign over the facade of the proposed store.
For all of us Ebayers out there!
LONDON -EBay is having trouble maintaining its argument that it is an innocent middle man between buyers and sellers. On Monday a French court ordered the Californian online auctioneer to pay 39.9 million euros ($62.9 million) to the luxury goods company LVMH for allowing the sale of counterfeit goods on its online auction site.
“We are very satisfied with this ruling,” an LVMH spokeswoman told Forbes.com. EBay said it would appeal the decision.
EBay has argued that, as an online auction house, it is just a platform for buyers and sellers to meet, and therefore not liable for any counterfeit goods that are sold through it.
There’s an informative story over on the Beauty Brains blog today that addresses sunglasses and whether or not you need to shell out big money for a designer pair in order to really protect your eyes. The answer? Actually no.
The article’s main points are how ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun can burn (scary!) the corneas and conjunctivas of your eyes, causing all manner of issues, including cataracts. And, though there are some basic guidelines set by the “American National Standards Institute,” the FDA doesn’t regulate sunglasses, so you’re kind of on your own with this purchase and need to be informed.
