Apple's leak control has apparently failed again, with photos and video of yet another alleged iPhone 4G prototype appearing on a Vietnamese Internet forum and on YouTube.4G Wireless: 20 Questions Asked & Answered IPhone 4G: What Users Really Want Indeed, the drama surrounding these prototypes -- the first was lost in a bar and bought by Gizmodo, which now faces legal trouble -- may be the most exciting part of the story, but ideally it's all in service of telling us more about the phone itself.

Here's a small disclaimer before we proceed any further: there's no proof that the images shown in this article-- which were originally posted here-- are even real. There's no question that the images are staged, all neatly arranged to showcase every aspect of the iPhone 4G model-- from the box to the cool way you can change the colors of its chassis.The problem I have with this whole display is that the device is never pictured actually on. Maybe I'm missing something here, but If I were the photographer, I'd forget about staging the box, and show what's actually under the hood.But if the box images are indeed indicative of what's in store with the iPhone 4G model, then we may see a radical change in the UI we've grown accustomed to for a few years.Still, the images could be legit. Note: clicking on any image will bring up the entire gallery. … [Read more...] about Apple’s iPhone 4G Finally Caught on Camera?

Apple's iPhone has long been one of the best business phones on the market, with one major shortcoming: Its pint-size display has always been a bit too small to get real work done. Apple addressed that issue with the iPhone 6, a scaled-up iPhone that finally offers enough screen space for real productivity. Apple did more than give its new smartphone a larger display; the iPhone 6 has been totally redesigned, with a superthin profile and smooth curves in place of the boxy edges on older models. Plus, the iPhone 6 ships with iOS 8, a revamped version of Apple's mobile operating system that adds a slew of new productivity-boosting features for business users. But Apple still has some catching up to do in a few areas. The iPhone 6 has shorter battery life than other flagship smartphones, and iOS 8, which slick and easy to use, still has some annoying limitations. So should business users upgrade to Apple's new flagship phone, or opt for an Android device instead? Display These days, … [Read more...] about Apple iPhone 6 Review: Is It Good for Business?
