iPhone 4S, 3GS, 4 off-contract pricing revealed

So you've got the prices for all the device on-contract, yes? Now we've got the real numbers for you if you plan on running away from the store with a device that's on no contract at all as well.

Sounds like a deal! If you'd like to get this phone OFF contract, you'll be paying a total of $375. An interesting thing to note here is the fact that the "free" model is in stock today while the off-contract model will be delivered and in stores on the 14th of October. Strange!

Apple mails physical greetings for you with new Cards app

Among the many things we anticipate Apple covering at the Let’s Talk iPhone event today, one we did not expect is a new app that involves Apple physically mailing something to you or a designated recipient.

iOS 5 not iPhone 5 is Apple’s big deal today

iOS 5 not iPhone 5 is Apple’s big deal today

Apple's "Let's Talk iPhone" event is just hours away, and there's still plenty of argument over what will steal the show. New iPhone hardware will obviously have a significant impact on Apple's bottom line for the next twelve months.

While that's all a big deal to Apple (and carriers), it's software which will make the broadest difference.

iOS App Rentals coming this week

iOS App Rentals coming this week

It appears quite likely that inside the BETA release for iTunes 10.5 comes a code that points directly at the future ability for users to rent applications instead of purchasing them. What this could mean is several things - it could simply be the ability for developers to allow rentals of their applications, this opening up a new window for revenue where now only freemium, payed, and free with apps options exist. Could this be the start of another revolution in app developing, or is it a complete phantom, only a re-named way to try apps out before purchase?
