iPhone 3G hands-on review roundup

iPhone 3G hands-on review roundup

Several hands-on iPhone 3G reports from after the WWDC 2008 Keynote are out, and as you might expect they're all saying pretty much the same thing. Despite the few extra millimeters thickness over the old iPhone, Apple's newly slimmed edges disguise it well and the plastic - which is a concession to the numerous wireless radios packed inside - feels reasonable, though some question how scratch-resistant it will prove. Apple are claiming it'll disguise wear better than the original. The buttons have been switched to metal for aesthetic, not practical reasons, and are sharper-edged. A few people have suggested that the new, white 16GB handset is particularly feminine, though that's more personal choice than anything else.

BlackBerry Z10 Review

BlackBerry Z10 Review

RIM reborn… and now it's BlackBerry, if you don't mind. Rebranded, refreshed, and desperate to impress, you can't knock BlackBerry's enthusiasm about its now-eponymous platform. Then again, it's had several months of delays in which to practice, and the BlackBerry Z10 - first out of the gate to run the OS - is so close to the two prior variants of developer device that there isn't a long list of new features to be learned. Instead, and with the arguably more important Q10 QWERTY version a couple of months off, it's a case of making an argument for BlackBerry 10 to occupy the coveted "third ecosystem" spot, and the scraps left behind from Android and iOS. Is BlackBerry 10 the OS to give Windows Phone nightmares, reboot BlackBerry itself, and snatch both consumer and enterprise crowns? Read on for our full review.

Apple’s Richard Williamson reportedly ousted in Maps switch-up

Apple’s Richard Williamson reportedly ousted in Maps switch-up

This week Bloomberg is reporting that they've got a source assuring them that Apple's own Richard Williamson was pushed out this week amid a Maps team shakeup. This change of the guard was spoken of by an anonymous source close to the dealings who said Senior Vice President Eddy Cue was responsible for the push. While we've not yet been able to confirm 100% that this move was made in Apple - or if will ever be made official if it is true, we can take this from the situation one way or the other: readers want to know what Apple is doing with their in-house Maps app.
