Engadget has a video of the new gestures in action. They look awesome. http://www.engadget.com/2011/01/12/i...-support-to-a/ Who needs a home button?
Verizon has been the driving force behind Android adoption in the US. That's over. Does anyone seriously think Android growth won't take a serious hit in 2011? I honestly can't see how this isn't going to be total carnage for Motorola, HTC, et al.
I think the iPhone and iPod touch will get an updated version of iOS when the Verizon iPhone is released. Maybe it's 4.2.5 or maybe that's just an internal build and the Verizon iPhone will ship with 4.3 and the GSM iPhone and iPod touch will get it too. I don't think Apple has ever had different versions running on the iPhone and iPod touch. They even updated iOS on the touch when they fixed the bars on the iPhone during "Antennagate." Only the iPad waits for updates.
The PlayBook has an option to switch to a form of multitasking where it automatically pauses apps. I'm sure that's the mode RIM will be basing its claims for battery life on, while showing the "cool" version in demos.
It'll be interesting to see if future versions of Apple software will be App Store only or will still be available on DVD. I have a feeling iWork '11 will be App Store only.
It's a fascinating example of how out of touch the tech blogosphere is. The comments on Engadget were hilarious. They were claiming Apple doesn't innovate and that the Atrix shows true innovation! These people truly live in a world of their own. It's a lame gimmick with absolutely no mainstream appeal.
I didn't see that. They show pretty much exactly the same stuff they do in the video they had on the Xoom but it's obviously running live there. The only places where I think they're ahead of Apple are the task switching and the notifications. I guess widgets, too, but I've never really seen the point.
After all the breathless reporting of the Motorola Xoom, it turned out they were showing hardware running a video of Honeycomb and that's it. I think that about sums this CES up. If Apple did something like that the outcry would be palpable. No wonder investors are reassessing the viability of iPad competitors after CES. Besides the Xoom there wasn't a lot to show on the Android tablet scene; mostly they were 7 inch tablets running the phone version of Android. The...
I think this will severely impact Android sales. I think we'll even see people switching from Android to the iPhone. The iPhone's poor service on AT&T reached the level of pop culture in the US, being routinely featured on SNL and late night talk shows. It was also a major part of Verizon's campaign against the iPhone. This is now coming to an end (with no less than Verizon itself making the announcement). That's a big deal in terms of public perception. Since there's...
I think this year is going to be crazy. Apple has 5 product lines now (iPod, iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV) and they're likely to update all of them. They've also got OS X 10.7 Lion coming and no doubt iOS 5 too. It's going to be announcements and product launches all year long.
