One of the authors at the online blogÂ iThug.com reported today that an individual was spotted using the long awaited iPhone in public.
Reuters reported today that a senior AT&T executive has indicated the iPhone is on target for it's release sometime during the month of June.
In recent weeks, internal moves at Apple and reports of battery life testing issues have generated a good deal of speculation that the iPhone would not be available to customers as early as previously reported.
The latest from AT&T, currently Apple's exclusive partner in release of the iPhone, says otherwise. Reuters quoted CEO Randall Stephenson indicating that testing is on schedule and has offered promising results.
Rumors are flying again regarding the Apple iPhone cost. Normally, rebate news isn't necessarily something to stop the presses for. However, when you're talking about the Apple iPhone and it's daunting $600 price point, it is.
There have been a lot of news stories since the announcement of the Apple iPhone touting multimedia or smartphone products from other companies as "iPhone killers" or some other label that suggests the device might beat the iPhone to it's proverbial punch. The only problem has been that these devices don't stand up to what we know about the iPhone, or fall into another device genre altogether. The announcement of a new line of products from Brevisys Technologies, a Boston, MA company, may change all of that.
So claims John C. Dvorak, Marketwatch columnist and Podcaster for TWiT (This Week in Tech). Referencing the claims of insider reports from a Cingular tester, Dvorak claims "you run 20 minutes and youâ€™re using up half the battery power. You get 40 minutes total talk time. And the interface fouls up constantly."
