Over the weekend, a pair of reports from Apple-watching industry blogs delivered tantalizing news to the iPhone-obessed, both involving details of new mobile devices. One report claims a T-Mobile iPhone is in the works, and it will also include the powerful new A5 processor. The A5 is a fast, dual-core chip designed to outperform its predecessor, the A4, especially when it comes to mobile gaming.Another report out now claims that the seemingly mythical white iPhone is due to launch this week.T-Mobile iPhone Prototype LeakedAccording to the popular mobile blog BGR, Apple is testing a iPhone prototype with T-Mobile USA 3G bands. The internal model number for this phone is N94, a higher model number than the Verizon iPhone, the N92, and the GSM (AT&T) iPhone, the N90. Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Tags:#Apple#mobile#news#web What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … sarah perez A follow-up report from 9to5Mac.com confirmed that the iPhone prototype also includes the A5 processor, the same processor powering next-gen iPhone hardware already in the hands of select game developers. This test hardware is being called the “iPhone 4S,” but it’s unclear if that’s just what the leaker of this news chose to call the device, or if that’s what Apple itself is calling it.9to5Mac emphasizes that these prototypes are not “the next iPhone,” per se. They are test devices only. The phones run iOS4 on the upgraded hardware, allowing developers to build new apps that take advantage of the forthcoming technical advances in hardware, prior to the official launch of the new iPhone, presumably being called the “iPhone 5.”The addition of a T-Mobile iPhone is not surprising, given that T-Mobile is one of the top mobile carriers in the U.S. Although the planned merger of AT&T with T-Mobile, pending regulator approval, could eventually bring the iPhone to T-Mobile customers, Apple may not want to wait the many months, if not years, it would take to do so.This move seems also seems more likely given Verizon’s apparent confirmation of previous rumors that indicated the next iPhone will be a “global device,” meaning one that works on both CDMA networks like Verizon as well as GSM networks like AT&T and T-Mobile. Related Posts Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement White iPhone Cometh?What’s more surprising, perhaps, is the newer report which reveals an actual launch date for the white iPhone.Months after the iPhone 4’s June 2010 launch, Apple admitted that the white models were more difficult to manufacture than originally expected, and would be delayed. Since then, spotting the white iPhone online, by way of mistakes from Web admins updating online inventory or other such blunders, led to sighting after accidental sighting of the increasingly mythological device.Whether the current report is accurate or just another rumor is still unknown. At any rate, this report contains a deadline for the device’s launch: April 27th.According to AppleInsider, citing “people familiar with the matter,” Apple’s U.S. stores began receiving promotional material related to the white iPhone, which is expected to arrive on both AT&T and Verizon “within the next week.” In-store shipment notifications point to a launch date of Wednesday, April 27th, it’s being reported.Late April 2011 fits with Apple’s promised timeline for the launch, said to be “spring” of this year. We hope that this time, at long last, the report is true.Image credits: BGR (top), AppleInsider (below) The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology
The Bombay High Court on Monday reserved its order in a plea filed by activist Anand Teltumbde seeking to quash an FIR against him for his alleged involvement in the Bhima Koregaon violence.Senior counsel Mihir Desai, appearing for Mr. Teltumbde, said, “All the letters mentioned by the prosecution in the case were not found in his house in Goa as no one was there and the house was locked. The police could not raid or seize anything from there. In fact, we can seek sanction to prosecute the officers for defamation.”He said such stringent provisions of Unlawful Activities Prevention Act have been levied upon Mr Teltumbde where there is no provision of anticipatory bail and getting a bail is very difficult.Assistant Public Prosecutor Aruna Kamat Pai relied upon the charge sheet filed against Shoma Sen, Surendra Gadling, Rona Wilson and Sudhir Dhawale, the others who were arrested in connection with the violence, and said letters have been found on Mr. Wilson and Mr. Gadling’s laptops highlighting a role played by Mr. Teltumbde in the violence.Ms. Pai mentioned four letters and one page of accounts details that indicated that Mr. Teltumbde was gathering support and success for the event at Bhima Koregaon.She read out a letter allegedly written by Mr. Teltumbde that said, “The agitation at Bhima Koregaon has been very successful except for the death of a few and Dalit sentiments are clearly against the BJP and therefore we must keep up the pressure.” Ms. Pai presented a sealed envelope with letters to the court and said one of them written by Mr. Teltumbde’s brother, Milind mentions the role played by his brother. At this Mr. Desai intervened and said, “Do they want to implicate me or find the truth?”After hearing all the arguments, a Division Bench of Justices B.P. Dharmadhikari and S.V. Kotwal said they, “want to discuss the matter” and reserved their order. read more
