At TEDIndia, Pranav Mistry demos several tools that help the physical world interact with the world of data — including a deep look at his SixthSense device and a new, paradigm-shifting paper “laptop.” In an onstage Q&A, Mistry says he’ll open-source the software behind SixthSense, to open its possibilities to all.
Well Apple has unveiled their new iPhone 4 handset which is due release quite soon, and what usually happens when a new iPhone hits is many defect from their current carrier to grab the latest Apple device from its exclusive carrier AT&T.According to an article over on Cnet by Marguerite Reardon, during an investor conference on Wednesday, Sprint’s chief financial officer, Robert Brust said, “Every year all U.S. carriers, except AT&T, go through a little trauma called ‘iPhone introduction. We have a little churn issue called ‘People leaving to go to the iPhone.’ As people’s contracts expire they leave and go to AT&T for the iPhone.”However, Brust went on to add that he is “hopeful” that the HTC EVO 4G will stem some of those traditional losses, saying, “Our hope is that we won’t lose as many customers this year as we have in the past.”Brust also stated that the Big Blue’s network problems along with their new tiered pricing plan may just give some potential iPhone 4 customers pause. Dan Hesse, Sprint CEO remarked “AT&T has been getting a lot of flack for its network. People all over the country have been complaining about the service. And they’ve raised rates for some of their customers. I think they are under a lot of stress right now.”Last time round, Sprint tried to cut defection to the new iPhone by introducing the Palm Pre and although the device did well in its first few days, sales were nowhere close to the iPhone. However, this time round, Burst believes that the HTC EVO 4G is a much more compelling device than the Palm Pre.The HTC EVO 4G is a phone that people can get instead of the iPhone 4, and last year we were in the distance but now we are catching up, said Burst
The most eagerly anticipated product launch of 2010 was met with a couple of iPhone 4G defects, but this development can work to your advantage, as several free iPhone 4G Test & Own offers are being re-promoted to help identify these bugs and defects. Want to own a unit for free? Read on and find out how.
Okay, so the Apple iPhone 4G was finally released last June 23, 2010. Instead of satisfied owners, however, cities were filled with purchasers who noticed one humongous flaw with the new mobile phone: signal disappears when you hold it in your palm.
What makes matters worse is Apple’s rather nonchalant reply, which eventually became a PR disaster: “you’re holding it the wrong way.”
What the heck, right? Are you supposed to hold the cellphone with 2 fingers? Every single second?
Additionally, there have been numerous reports that some units have yellow discoloration on their screens. Experts say that this problem was expected, as the iMac 27″, the first one to implement the Retina Display that is being introduced to mobile phones courtesy of the newest Apple mobile phone, has the same defect in many of the units sold.
So, the eagerly anticipated launch turned out to be a bust, but it is nothing to be worried about as an emergency firmware update is sure to fix the mentioned defects. The system’s signal reception, after all, can be manipulated by the firmware as the 4G model shares the same physical engineering (albeit sleeker than previous entries) as earlier iPhone units.
But how can these iPhone 4G defects lead to an amazing opportunity for you to own a free iPhone 4G unit?
Well, are you familiar with the free iPhone 4G offers all over the web? The legitimate ones, at least?
These offers are initiated by companies which have great interest on the success of Apple’s newest flagship product. They may be suppliers for Apple, third party developers, prospective advertisers, business partners, and the likes. Regardless of who they are, they want to ensure that the newest version of the product line succeed, and they need your help.
Now more than ever, apparently.
Prior to the newest model’s release, these companies gave away thousands of units for volunteers to test. These volunteers were supposed to report bugs and defects they found with their iPhones. To compensate these testers, they were allowed to keep the units they tested.
Were you able to avail of such an offer?
If yes, then congratulations on your brand new free iPhone 4G.
But if you didn’t manage to jump aboard one of these offers, don’t worry. More such free iPhone 4G offers are on the way.
Because the aforementioned interested companies can’t afford more bugs and defects found on the system they’re heavily investing on.
