3G iPhone leaked due to a carrying case render?

In Cell Phones, Technology on May 19, 2008 at 10:28 am

Well, I’m sitting at school, checking Engadget, and come across this, a potential leak of the 3G iPhone. I believe that it is true, there is just too much evidence of the new iPhone, first Apple takes it off their website, then Apple stores and AT&T report dwindling stock of the iPhone, then the picture, and now this. The case is significantly different from the current iPhone, it is rounder and some of the jacks are out of place, I believe that this is the one that will prove the 3G iPhone, it’s about time!

RIM announces Blackberry Bold release date, prices leaked

In Cell Phones on May 16, 2008 at 11:46 am

UPDATE ON SEP 8: There is a pretty strong rumor going around at Engadget and The Boy Genius Report that the Bold will be coming out on October 2 for AT&T, no word on any other carriers. Don’t get your hopes up just yet, remember the summer release date? Yeah, it got thrown in the garbage can, but it is an ounce of light on a still lingering hope that the Bold will at least come out this year. Story from Engadget, link to the Boy Genius Report is in the post.

UPDATE ON AUG 23: It’s also official that Rogers, the major Canadian carrier, will be offering the Blackberry Bold for CA $399 as well as a voice plus data plan for CA $49 a month. Story from Engadget.

UPDATE ON AUG 14: It’s official, the Blackberry Bold release date has been delayed. It’s already August and no Bold. Research in Motion (RIM) has stated that due to bad battery life, software issues, and overheating, the Bold has been delayed. There is no word from anyone when the new dates are going to be. Report from Engadget & The Boy Genius Report.

NOTICE: All updates for the Blackberry Bold will be posted through AddictedBlogging.com as of July 5, 2008.

UPDATE ON JUN 12: Engadget has reported that the Blackberry Bold now has it’s own promotional page on AT&T, the AT&T page is here and the Engadget page is here.

ORIGINAL ON MAY 16: As you can tell I am very fond of Engadget. That is why I found this article. RIM has announced the release dates for their new, hot, Blackberry Bold as well as a leak for the prices. Keep in mind that prices are just estimates (Thanks Forrest). Here they are:

AT&T – July ($300)

Verizon Wireless – September ($300)

Sprint – September ($300)

T-Mobile – September ($350)

I know that we’re all waiting on the exact release dates and pricing, but for now you can just drool over some more Blackberry Bold pictures at the gallery below.

There has also been a sort of a leak on the AT&T online store, which gave users the option to purchase an iPhone in the standard color or black. The picture also follows.

Off Topic: Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 coming out, iPhone 2 anyone?

In Cell Phones on May 12, 2008 at 3:05 pm

OK, with all this talk about cell phones nowadays, I’d like to present two of the biggest contenders for me. The Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 and the Apple iPhone. I’ll start with the Sony. The X1 is a hybrid of a touchscreen with a full QWERTY keyboard. It slides up and looks pretty nice. I don’t know the specs, but judging from the photos, it’s pretty nice. Now for the iPhone. The iPhone has been getting a lot of hype lately ever since the leak of an iPhone 2 came out earlier this year. Engadget even hosted a picture of it a few weeks ago. They say it has 3G, a GPS, and many more new goodies. It looks different, but they say it’s just a case (Which I agree with). You can find a full list of new specs at Engadget.com. Pictures of both the X1 and the rumoured iPhone 2 are below.
