Apple Tablet: The New iBook?

New information has surfaced indicating that Apple will market the 10-inch tablet computer as an e-book reader in 2010. The latest buzz surrounding the device focuses on domains and trademarks registered indirectly by Apple such as iSlate.

However, if the Apple tablet indeed has its own App Store specifically for e-books, magazines and newspapers, why not revive the iBook name? With the iTunes platform Apple has already changed the face of digital music, and has recently moved into distributing film and television content.

Apple Could Launch 8GB iPhone 3GS

Rumors of an 8GB iPhone 3GS were shot down this summer after Canadian carrier Rogers accidentally made the nonexistent handset available on their website. Now an iPhone user in Germany claims to have received this packaging label on his refurbished 8GB iPhone 3G.

This may be evidence that Apple plans to ditch the 8GB 3G model for an 8GB capacity 3GS. The move would make sense as a new iPhone 4.0 model is expected in summer of 2010.

AT&T Website: No iPhone For You

Yet another snafu in AT&T Wireless' public relations efforts has surfaced. Customers interested in purchasing an iPhone via the company's website in the New York area are finding that the product isn't listed.

Zip codes in New York City, northern New Jersey and Westchester County have had the iPhone removed as an option for online purchase. Representatives of AT&T have simply stated that distribution and promotion channels are periodically changed.

iPhone 4G to Include Upgraded Camera

The next generation iPhone will sport a 5-megapixel camera if the latest reports from DigiTimes are to be believed. Last year, the iPhone 3GS improved imaging capabilities with the addition of autofocus and video using a 3.2-megapixel camera.

OmniVision Technologies is expected to increase production of its image sensors in 2010 to fulfill demands for Apple's products, including the iPhone. Orders for 5-megapixel sensors have already been received by OmniVision in advance of the iPhone 4.0 launch next year.

Squaretrade iPhone Insurance Giveaway -- Enter and Automatically Win

Did you give or, better yet, have the pleasure of receiving an Apple iPhone this holiday season? If so, you're likely already wondering how to keep your favorite, new, constantly handled device safe from harm. Unfortunately, the reality of the situation is that statistics indicate that 80% of all iPhone failures are the result of accidents and not factory related defects or other unexplained failures with the devices themselves (kudos to Apple). Since the standard iPhone warranty and extended AppleCare coverage do NOT cover accidents, many customers are left having to pay unsubsidized prices as high as $699 to replace broken iPhones.
