The Desktop OS Will Never Die – Just Multiply

More and more people are traveling without a laptop these days, who otherwise might have been laden with a heavy machine.

In fact, with its light weight, great casual gaming and top-notch multimedia capabilities, the iPad or a similar tablet might be a better choice than a laptop for many travelers.

One Hundred Million is the Magic Number

One Hundred Million is the Magic Number

At the Apple worldwide developer's conference, Steve Jobs talked about a lot of numbers at onstage. Apple talked about the 29% US market share of the smart phone market that the iPhone has achieved. Apple discussed the 58% market share of mobile Web browsing that it now has. Apple even talked about their 22% marketshare in e-books. The most important number, however, that Apple talked about so was 100 million. That's how many iOS devices are in the market as of this month. That's significant and it shows what Apple's long-term platform play is all about. Hint, it's no longer about the personal computer, at least the personal computer as we know it.

iPhone 4 clears FCC with SAR report in hand

iPhone 4 clears FCC with SAR report in hand

We're guessing whatever confidentiality agreement Apple had with the FCC has just been lifted, because their full report into the new iPhone 4 has now been published and we don't think they've been up working all night.  Unfortunately, Apple have asked for indefinite confidentiality on a lot of the more juicier details, but if you're concerned as to whether the iPhone 4 will cook your head with radiation, the SAR values are public.

Phone Arena have been doing the sums and reckon that the iPhone 4 is actually one of the lowest around when it comes to SAR ratings: 0.02 W/kg lower than the iPhone 3GS it replaces and only pipped by the HTC EVO 4G when it comes to head SAR results among the popular smartphones around right now.  As for body results, it's a little higher than the 3GS, but a fair chunk lower than the DROID, Droid Incredible or EVO 4G.

iPhone 4 hands-on

iPhone 4 hands-on

Slimmer, brighter, more powerful and apparently the product of 18 months development: the Apple iPhone 4 certainly is something. The WWDC 2010 opening keynote is over, and we've just been back to check out the new Apple smartphone.  Set to debut on June 24th - and up for preorder from June 15th - the Jobs hyperbole and press shots don't do the iPhone 4 justice in your hand. Whether you're an Apple fan or not, you have to give them credit for creating a very slick device.
