Apparently in the last minutes before the upcoming March 9 Spring Event, Apple has changed the final design of its much anticipated smart watch. According to the leaker which asked to remain anonymous, it only weights 35 grams (1,23 ounces) and has a LED display. You can select from 10 different colors, black till crazy purple. Not much more details are know yet except for the price, which is much lower than the anticipated $20,000 for the Edition, like mentioned by the famous Apple blogger John Gruber.
You can see the leaked images here.
The guys from iPhonesoft.fr are back with new concept renderings, they did also the brilliant iOS 7 concept before.

- iOS 8 which comes again in the iOS 7 style (gradients are back)
- The “Air” design -> iPhone 6 Air
- 4.5-inch anti-glare display with ultra-thin edges

History repeats itself, they say. Just like Steve Jobs was sacked from Apple in 1985 before his reappearance in 1998, to make Apple the world’s biggest company, Scott Forstall will come back to save Apple from the second demise.
Fast forward to 2018, Scott Forstall is named CEO of Apple Inc. The iOS Director had been forcefully removed from the company in 2012, after being blamed for the iOS 6 debacle, and clashing with Bob Mansfield the Senior Vice President of Hardware Engineering.
Peter Misek, an analyst at Jefferies says that he believes that Apple decided to buy iPad 3, iPhone 5 and TV display panels from Sharp. At first these will be IGZO based LCDs - which will be brighter, clearer, thinner and more efficient than existing LCDs.
During LG Display’s conference call discussing their Q3 2011 financial results, the company reiterated plans to release a 55” OLED TV product in the middle of 2012. LG’s OLED TV will be Oxide-TFT based. This will not be mass production, but the company hopes that towards the end of 2012 they will announce their plans for mass production. LG Display is aiming towards 80%-90% yield in their pilot plant, and will announce the yield in the middle of 2Q 2012.
According to Taiwan’s “chinatimes” reported that the prototype of iPhone 5 has been put into trial production in Honghai Foxconn. “In addition to change over to metal to raise antenna sensitivity, a 4 inches Capacitive anti scraping touch screen will also be assorted”, according to past practices, it will be on the market in the third quarter.
The introduction of the iPhone 4 is a fact in Belgium. Quite some people have tried to get their hands on one, but not too many succeeded. For example in Antwerp the rumor goes that there were 65 iPhones for the people who queued sinds midnight (see pics below) and only 15 for the morning queue.
In another Mobistar shop in Mortsel there were only 11 but there where 16 preorders, so -5. I checked out some shops in the capital Brussels.

The latest buzz sweeping the blogosphere concerns a rumor that the iPhone OS 4.0 MAY finally offer the ability to multitask. Apple’s taken a lot of flack over the years for not offering what is probably the most basic of features in today’s computing environment. Johnny-Come-Latelys, like the Droid, who are trying to capitalize on the iPhone’s success by copying it are touting this prominently in their advertising.
I was reading an interesting news article from pocketgames this morning, where they unveiled hints in the code to a new device called the N89, which includes video codec for 720p.
720p means basically that the resolution is 720 pixels vertical by 1280 pixels horizontal with progressive scan. It has a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9.
A new year brings a new iPhone, which is for sure when Apple sticks to its current iPhone release cycle. To sum up the releases of the iPhone;
iPhone 4GB / 8GB June 29 2007
iPhone 8GB/16GB Feb 05 2008
iPhone 3G 8GB/ 16 GB July 11 2008
iPhone 3G S 16GB/32GB June 19 2009
There is one date that stands out from the others and that is Feb 05 2008, with the storage increase of the original iPhone to 16GB after the 4GB has been discontinued in September 2007. If the current rumors of the iPhone 3G S 8GB edition are true, then this year we can have again a double iPhone release. Around February the lower storage version, to put prices down even further, and in the summer the iPhone ‘4 G’.
