Apple Got Favorable Terms in Verizon iPhone Deal?

No comments:



Kaufman Bros. analyst Shaw Wu says Apple got the terms it wanted from Verizon in negotiations to offer the iPhone on their network, according to FORTUNE.

Wu says he is "picking up that iPhone economics to Apple are likely to be favorable, similar to that offered by AT&T."

"This is important as many, including ourselves, have been concerned that VZ iPhone economics could be less favorable given the strength of Android and higher cost of components, particularly those associated with CDMA."

Wu also believes that part of the deal was for Apple not to offer the device to T-Mobile or Spring.

"We are hearing that VZ does not want iPhone, the hottest selling smart phone, available on T-Mobile USA and/or Sprint and may be willing to pay for exclusivity to itself and AT&T."

Google Announces Google eBooks, Reader App for iOS [Video]

No comments:



Google has officially announced Google eBooks which can be purchased and read from the Google eBookstore using a new iOS app for iPhone, iPod, and iPad.

Google claims to have the largest ebooks collection in the world with more than three million titles including thousands for sale.

With the new Google eBooks Web Reader, you can buy, store and read Google eBooks in the cloud. That means you can access your ebooks like you would messages in Gmail or photos in Picasa—using a free, password-protected Google account with unlimited ebooks storage.

In addition to a full-featured web reader, free apps for Android and Apple devices will make it possible to shop and read on the go. For many books you can select which font, font size, day/night reading mode and line spacing suits you—and pick up on the page where you left off when switching devices.

We'll let you know once the app hits the App Store.

Apple to Launch Mac App Store on December 13th?

No comments:



Apple may be preparing to launch the Mac App Store as early as December 13th, according to AppleTell.

An inside source has just told us that Apple is targeting a Monday, December 13th launch of the Mac App Store. The company apparently told developers to have their software prepared for a launch as early as Monday the 6th of this month, but our contact would be shocked if that happened at this point. Apple has made no official announcements regarding this, and delays could always happen, but there’s a push to be launched before Christmas, well ahead of the previously estimated January release.

Apple has been asking developers to submit their apps to the store since November 4th.

No comments:



Apple may have hired renown architect Norman Foster to design 'Apple City', the company's new campus which will be built on 98 acres of land just acquired from HP.

According to elEconomista, the campus will feature a focus on design and functionality while insuring that it is environmentally friendly.

Steve Jobs care especially environmental issues, to the point that the entire road transport transit through a network of tunnels that will clear the surface areas green. The buildings which will house the engineers and R & D will also be multifunctional and will incorporate cutting-edge technology in materials and equipment as well as renewable energy resources.

The project is said to take some inspiration from Masdar, Abu Dhabi, considered the first city in the world without cars or carbon emissions.

Apple signage has revealed that the white iPhone 4 is coming in 'Spring 2011', according to a photo posted by 9to5Mac.

That should dispel rumors that Apple scrapped the white iPhone 4 altogether. Another common rumor that the white edition will be a Verizon launch special is still unconfirmed.

Take a look at the photo below...
