Short Hiatus

vacationIt’s been a few weeks since I have posted anything on my Tech Blog.  What with the end of the school year, the kids school functions, and fighting a bad two week cold, I just didn’t have the energy to post to my blog.  But don’t fret.  There are several topics that I will be posting about.  The first of a few topics I will be posting about is the new 3G iPhone.  I am going to write about what I like about the new iPhone, and what I would have like to have seen in the new iPhone.  I have also been checking out some social networking sites in my absence, namely Twitter.  Finally, I am going to post on Spore Creature Creator.  And, I am going to post the YouTube video I made of my Creature.

Well with that I will say goodbye, and I will see you in the Blogoshpere shortly.

Latest 3G iPhone Rumor

prod-iphoneAs WWDC approaches the iPhone rumor mill will run a muck. So far we have heard that the new iPhone will be 3G, it will have GPS, oh and it will also drive your car for you. I am kidding about the last statement, but I would not be surprised if that was a rumor as well. This morning I read a Gizmodo article stating a “source very close to the 3G iPhone launch”, said that the iPhone will be announced on June 9th at WWDC. And, that it will be available “worldwide” right after the launch. The prominent rumor is that it will be announced at WWDC, but as far a launch time it has been varying by rumor.

The other rumor which I hope is true, is the subsidization of the iPhone by the carrier. I had posted this on my blog about three weeks ago. According to the Fortune Blog AT&T would subsidize the iPhone by $200.00 when you sign a two year contract. The Gizmodo article also states that the iPhone will not be sold at a fixed price point. As to what exactly this means the article was fairly vague. I guess what they are probably taking about is carrier subsidization. Or, Apple might be releasing more than one iPhone model. This to is another rumor cycling through the rumor mill.

Well until June 9th, all we can do is hope that the rumors are true. If they are this is going to be a great iPhone. Even if some of the rumors are not true, I still think the iPhone will do very well.

3G iPhone at WWDC???

wwdc_macbookI just read an article from macrumors.com regarding the new iPhone. They claim from their sources that the 3G iPhone will be introduced at this years World Wide Developer’s Conference in San Francisco at the Moscone Center. According to their sources the price points will remain the same for the 8GB iPhone at $399.00, and the 16GB iPhone at $499.00. They also mentioned speculation of an unconfirmed 32GB iPhone priced at $599.00. In my opinon, I believe Apple will drop the 8GB iPhone from their line completely, and only produce the 16GB and 32GB models. As for the pricing, I think it would be great if the 16GB iPhone was $399.00, and the 32GB iPhone was $499.00. However, I don’t think they will sell at those price points. I think they will sell for $100.00 more per model respectively. Let’s hope Apple doesn’t drop the price by $200.00 like they did last year. In case they do, I will be buying my new iPhone with my American Express card, so that I can get the full price drop credited back to me. That is what American Express did for their card holders last year when Apple lowered the price. To read the full article at macrumors.com, click here.
