AT&T iPhone 4S limits at one per person

AT&T iPhone 4S limits at one per person

Reports today suggest that the iPhone 4S sales in the USA, or at least at AT&T stores, will be limited to one per person, with no differentiation made between normal sales and existing customer upgrades. In what is said to be an iPhone 4S training document sent out in PDF form to workers, AT&T has made clear that regardless of the purchases of said device being New, Upgrade, or No Commitment, "One device per person" is the limit. All said and done, this is half of what we could buy for the iPhone 4 launch. Not fair, what if I want to buy one for my rabbit?!

Samsung pushes iPhone 5 ban while antitrust specter looms

Samsung pushes iPhone 5 ban while antitrust specter looms

Courts at The Hague will rule on the Samsung versus Apple injunction request on October 14, deciding whether or not the Korean company can push ahead with its pre-emptive attempt to have the iPhone 5 banned from sale in Europe. Earlier today, Apple's legal team argued that Samsung had sought to mislead the 3G development process by withholding the fact that it was promoting the inclusion of certain technologies it had already patented. The Korean firm then attempted to ambush Apple, the lawyers suggested, in an attempt to distract from its own patent infringements, and demanding sky-high royalties.

Apple Patent Seeks to do Away with Fingerprints

Apple Patent Seeks to do Away with Fingerprints

Take a look at the Fingerprint Portal here on SlashGear and you'll see quite plainly that when we review devices, the subject comes up often, especially when it comes to displays. Apple knows this, and with their new FCC filed plans they appear to be seeking to do away with them. Apple here is using an oleophobic coating to keep fingerprints out of mobile world, a direct liquid application called Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) and should it work the way they're describing it AND should it make its way to the real world, we may soon have a tougher time judging who has held a phone based on prints alone.

Nokia’s Crutch is Broken

Nokia’s Crutch is Broken

Nokia's Q2 2011 financial results makes for just as uncomfortable reading as we expected. If there was ever any doubts that Symbian had seen its day, April thru June put pay to them. Nokia's entire smartphone range - the N8, C7 and E7 included - sold fewer devices than Apple sold iPhones in the same period: 16.7-million versus 20-million. It's not just the smartphone side of Nokia's business, though, that needs CPR.
