 I can't say for sure, but I strongly suspect any phone with enough processing power can do it - in theory. It really depends on what part of the system handles the conversion of voice into GSM packets. If that's happening in software, and then the packets are handed to the radios, then it should be possible for the software the re-direct those packets to the WiFi. That's really all there is to UMA. However, if the *sound* is sent to the chip, and the chip handles both...
YAY!! This is a major limitation with the current system IMHO. It's a serious pain to join the network, go through to your media and then start AirPlay just for one song. Anything that reduces this is a major win in my books.
We're going to have to wait for details on this before we all start jumping to conclusions. It could be UMA, in which case practically every carrier already has it.
"I don't see why the 4S won't get iOS 8. The 4 got iOS 7, and the 4S is a significant upgrade in terms of processor power from the 4." Plus, the 4S is still an actively sold product.
Indeed I do, but the question remains why SHOULD I need one? Ports on the front would be a very welcome upgrade.
Somewhat. My original MP from '06 was $2699 for the base model. At the time the Canadian dollar was not what it is today, so this caused the price to be higher than in the US. The combination of eight years of inflation along with the stronger CAD means I'm paying pretty much *exactly* the same price for my new one. The same will not be true in the US, however. That said, there is zero doubt in my mind that Apple could sell a LOT more of these, assuming they'd want to,...
I don't think it's either. I ordered mine in early April. At the time the ship time was "6 to 8 weeks". So it would arrive last week of May. By the mid/end April, the times had been reduced to "4 to 6 weeks". So it would arrive the last week of May. By early May it was "3 to 4 weeks". So it would arrive the last week of May. Then it was "2 to 3 weeks". So it would arrive the last week of May. Now it is the last week of May, and the delivery time is one week. So it would...
And smart watches...
Wave Receipts takes an image of your bill, then scans and OCRs it at their end and sends you the results. Works just as well as any scanner I've seen, sans the scanner. So please, don't tell us the camera isn't good enough and is too hard to use. It is, and isn't. Receipts works.
The list of "the perfect machine" seems relatively short: 1) a second SSD slot2) at least one USB on the front (duh)3) replaceable GPUs4) (least important) perhaps a small-form hard drive bay (yes, ONE) With those relatively minor upgrades I think there's be zero complains with form factor.
