The iPhone Nano

February 14, 2011 Leave a comment

This is kinda cool i think, ok so since the Verizon iPhone is finally out there and not a rumor any more we have to find something else to fantasize about.

Meet the iPhone Nano, since last week has been a rumor, but has now been confirmed by the WSJ (Wall Street Journal) that Apple is working on a smaller lighter version of the iPhone

The person who saw the prototype of the new iPhone said the device was significantly lighter than the iPhone 4 and had an edge-to-edge screen that could be manipulated by touch, as well as a virtual keyboard and voice-based navigation. The person said Apple, based in Cupertino, Calif., also plans to upgrade the iPhone 4.

Im curious as to what the “Upgrade” more ram? faster CPU? or heck even unlocking the CPU to go as fast as the iPad? (Since they have the same processor)

What are your thoughts on this? Nano iPhone good or bad? Would you buy one?

Varizon iPhone Shipped in Test Mode

Wow I would be kinda angry if this was me, a Verizon customer was shipped an iPhone 4 in test mode, what is test mode you may ask?? Well test mode is the mode that apple uses to test their hardware for errors, how to get into this has eluded us so far.

But now what does this person do? Do they keep it or toss it?

(Pretty colors no?)

Well looks like these two hackers are getting along quite nicely (like pees in a pod). Hopefully this “break” won’t Last too long and he’ll get back to coding, but I totally understand why he wants a break.

Italian hacker Finds Evidence that Qualcomm baseband Chips might be used in next gen iPhone models

January 22, 2011 Leave a comment

Italian hacker Zibri has found a string of code in iTunes (by decompiling it) showing Qualcomm Baseband chips to be used in iPhone 5 and iPad 2

here is the code he found in iTunes (also on his blog)

Here’s what Zibri has to say about it

“In the picture above you see a “chunk” of code from the latest iTunes.Maybe, for the most of you, names like”partition.mbn” or “AMSS.MBN” means little or nothing.

For me and a few others that means only one thing:QUALCOMM.

Those files are the building blocks of any Qualcomm baseband.
So I can tell you that the next wave of iProducts will be using a QUALCOMM baseband.

Which one I don’t know… maybe the iPad2, maybe the iPhone5 most probably all of them.

What is clear is that they are testing them using the same iTunes

you have on your hard drives.”

 

Hopefully all of this does just point straight to the Verizon iPhone..what a shame that would be.

but I think he is on to something.

 

Also last years august Qualcomm had a job posting  for “iPhone Developer Guru”, Well if that isn’t a hint I don’t know what is.

And also reported last year was that Qualcomm was working on a GCM/CDMA chipset, Would that be cool or what! I think that’s just me being geeky though.

what do you think?
