Apple pulls 3G iPads, iPhone 4, more from German online store

Apple has yanked the majority of its 3G-enabled devices from its German online store, including the iPhone 4 and the iPad 2 WiFi + 3G, after Motorola Mobility secured a sales injunction over 3G/UMTS patents.

T-Mobile document: unlocked iPhones have poor network performance

A leaked internal document from T-Mobile shows that there's a good reason it remains the only major carrier left out of the iPhone race.

iPhone explodes in holiday sales as Nokia struggles to penetrate

Nokia's multi-million efforts to push its Windows Phone based Lumia 800 still hasn't resulted in strong holiday sales, according to the latest UK stats, with Apple's iPhone continuing to dominate the mobile market.
