Latest iPhone and iPod Gadgets

clock October 7, 2010 23:24 by author Jeremy

As we enter the month of Halloween, it seemed only fitting for Mio I-zawa, Japanese designer, to show his latest creation: an iPhone-charging umbilical cord.

 

If you think the design and picture are awesome, then you should see the video of it: the cord actually moves, pushing your iPhone along with it. Best of all: it really does charge your iPhone with every nutrient-feeding-twitch.

In case you weren't in the market for just a charging cord (or if you just didn't want to read news that brought your breakfast back with it), then check out this nifty gadget: the Icon Power Pack, brought to you by IPEVO.

This external battery will plug into any iPhone 4 or previous generation, and charges with a mini-USB cable (provided). The real kicker is how it lights up when charging or being used. The front panel will show green bars lighting up when charging, and all the green bars will stay on when the battery is fully charged. When plugged into your iPhone, the bars will slowly disappear; when all four bars are flashing, the external battery has been drained and is due for another charge.

AT&T Now Offers a Satellite-Enabled Smart Phone

clock October 1, 2010 20:02 by author Ty

Satellite cell phones are being pushed again in North America using a combination of AT&T and the TerraStar satellite network. Today AT&T began selling the TerraStar Genus to professional customers through businesses channels and should hit retail stores by the end of the year.

Initial costs of the TerraStar Genus satellite cell phone is $799 and needs the AT&T voice and data service plans to connect with no contract. The AT&T network is used when it is available, and switches to satellite when there is no service. There is an additional charge of $25 per month to use the satellite service and 65 cent per minute of calling. Text messages can also be sent over through the satellite network at a cost of 40 cents per message.  If you need to use the internet when there is no 2G or 3G network available, then an additional $5 per megabyte is added to your cell phone charges.

Of course these charges can add up quickly, but if you have a clear view of the southern sky, you should be able to easily get satellite cell phone signal to make calls, send and receive text messages, and browse the internet. The TerraStar Satellite is one of the largest commercial satellites online with a 60 foot wide gold mesh umbrella and is capable of picking up faint cell phone signals 22,000 miles down. Other companies have attempted to successfully launch a satellite cell phone company, and TerraStar definitely looks promising.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs held a press conference today at Apple’s campus in Cupertino, California at 10AM PST to cover the iPhone 4 issues that have been circulating through the web and media the past 22 days. Apple is aware of the issues and is doing everything they can to fix the problems internally with iOS upgrades and offering consumers a 30 day return policy and a free bumper case which can fix the antenna reception issue. Below is a quick summary of the conference.

Summary:
1. Most smartphones seem to have the same characteristic as the iphone 4 when the phone is held in the same manner and we see an antenna performance drop. The iPhone 4 is not the only phone that has this problem.

3. ATT offers a return policy for users with bad reception and the return rates is 1/3 less than the Apple 3GS phones.

Motorola Droid X Available Today at Verizon

clock July 15, 2010 18:30 by author Ty

Motorola has released the Droid X today at all Verizon stores nationwide. The Driod X now joins the iPhone 4 and HTC EVO 4G in the battle for the superphone top spot. Apple's iPhone is flawed with reception problems on the AT&T network and could result in users switching over to Verizon to purchase the HTC Android X. July and August should be interesting months to see how well the Droid X sells to consumers.

Battery life on the Droid X is impressive with an eight-hour talk time and 10 days standby time. The Droid X is equipped with a 1540 mAh Lithium (Li-ion) battery, which is bigger than the 1500 mAh Evo 4G Lithium (Li-ion) battery and 1420 mAh iPhone 4 Lithium (Li-ion) battery. This should put the Droid X ahread of the iPhone 4 and EVO 4G by actually having a cell phone battery that will last throughout the whole day.

Motorola Droid X Pros:

  • Long battery life
  • Google Android OS v2.1
  • Bright, colorful, glossy 4.3 LCD screen
  • 8GB built-in memory; 16GB card pre-installed
  • 8-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, HD video recorder

Motorola Droid X Cons:

  • Top-heavy
  • Low call volume
  • Small physical control buttons
  • Screen washes out in bright sunlight
  • Below-average HD video
