I wonder if the Backbeat 906, which comes with a network adapter that plugs into the headphone jack, might work. They say it supports the HFP that the iPod touch and iPad lack, though they don't mention anything about PBAP.
Glad to hear this. I would more willingly pay for a BBC subscription through iPlayer than for anything like Hulu or what have you. Wonder when it might actually launch and how much it might be.
It seems that the iPad's built-in mic and speaker work okay for Skype (from the self-included test, I didn't try placing an actual call), but that it does not currently support any Bluetooth headsets for VoIP. Wired sets should all work.
Are there any VoIP apps for the iPad that support Bluetooth? Tried both Gizmo5 and Skype and neither work with my Backbeat headset (even though the Gizmo app has a setting to enable Bluetooth.) Incidentally, Truphone actually states that it does not support Bluetooth on the iPad; also my Backbeats do not work on my Mac with fStream, though they do with iTunes. So I can see that getting them to work for VoIP on the iPad is going to be somewhat problematic. Any pointers...
My iPad 3G actually works a lot better now that it is jailbreaked and I have installed Backgrounder. Before, Atomic Browser would actually open the wrong links in background tabs on certain sites such as NYTimes and Slate. Now I can multitask on my iPad and everything goes swimmingly. Thanks, Saurik, where ever you are.
Speaking of tabbed browsing, solipsism, have you tried Atomic Browser?
Fast as all get out, caches multiple pages, instant switching between tabs with no page refresh, auto full screen mode, other great features. Right now I am playing a video at nytimes.com, have googlenews, thenewyorker, and three or four other sites open and can jump back and forth between tabs without losing my place while I type this.
Just needs to keep imported bookmarks as default set,...
Outside the Apple Store on 14 St the ASCRs were informing everyone that they needed to pay with plastic and have ID. That must explain why the woman in line next to me who had been rifling through the cash in her bag while yakking on her iPhone had suddenly left the line in a huff-- guess she got the news before the rest of us. But no one else that I could see gave up their place.
Anyway they moved us all through really fast! Only little hitch was that my sales rep,...
I spoke to a couple of ACSRs yesterday to find out if I could reserve or pre-pay for an iPad 3G to pick it up today. They very politely and patiently told me no, that I would just have to come by and try my luck at the launch. They then divulged that the payment areas were to be re-arranged, with a separate section just for iPad 3G sales. Hoping that means I won't have to wait in line too long, planning to get there around 4PM.
In the words of Ed Wynn, "I'm tho exthited!"
There are 185,000 apps in the App Store and these MacBook Pros can't run any of them!
Unless I can install any app I want to on my portable it is not a real computer.
No touch screen, no accelerometer, no option for 3G... No deal!
